Shenandoah Valley Virginia ILGM Autoflower Grow

Howdy! Got some pictures from over the last few weeks and figured that I would share. For starters I’ve got 4 Ilgm autos going, 2 GSCE(outdoor), 1 Bruce Banner(outdoor) and a gorilla glue I’m growing Indoors in a 3×3 tent with a mars hydro led and some cheap amazon blurple light for some extra light. They were all started from seed in 3 gallon fabric pots with FF Happy Frog soil, using the FF nutrient line. Started all four indoors for the first couple weeks and put the 3 lady’s outside around 2 weeks ago. They all sprouted from soil June 12th and have been growing like “weeds” since. Did a little LST on one of the gsc but other than that they have just been doing there thing. They are enjoying this VA weather we’ve been having lately so I’ve been letting them soak up that sun. Have ran into a couple little problems but nothing to serious that couldn’t be corrected. Just started getting some rust spots on the upper leaves of my gorilla glue but ran out of calmag, have more on way from amazon now just waiting for it to get here. Other than that it’s went pretty well so far, hopefully we stay in that direction. That’s for checking it out. If there is anything you see I could change up or do different let me know I could always use some tips.

Ol va! my stomping grounds, from the burg. Girls looking great! How is the Mars? Currently have spider farmer sf4000, T5 with 4 full spectrum leds and 4 fluorescent, then few more cheap full spectrum feit electric just to add some extra light in 7x7 with 35 girls. Spider farmer lil expensive and I need about 3 more so was wondering how the Mars is working for ya?

I know you didn’t ask my opinion, but I like maxsisun PB series more than mars hydro.
For cheaper LEDs, anyway.

That’s the issue I have with all these led sellers, some r 100 bucks while others r 600+. Is spending the extra 400+ on an led really worth it? Or just grab 6 cheap ones?

If you can, go to the HLG (horticulture lighting group) website and check out their lights.
They are on sale for the month of July, and you can save more with the “dude” code at checkout.
I personally like the 260 rspec for my 3x3, I have 2 in there and they BLAST light.
More expensive that lights you’ll get off of Amazon, but worth it IMO

Those Feit lights are good for younger houseplants, and good for a little extra heat in the cold, but they don’t seem to do much past the vegetative stage.
