I’ve been growing for bout a year now and recently converted a closet in my home to a flower room. Over the last three harvest my plant haven’t yield the expected amount was wondering if I can get some help and advise
Why don’t you start by telling me what your particulars are. Lights, strain, temps, tools, grow style etc.
I’m running 2600 watt lighting in coco I have been growing gold leaf and purple haze temps been 76 humidity between 50 &40 with lst and topping and scrog indoor grow with gh nutes
Which 2600 light and how big is your space?
What was your yield and what were you expecting?
Lighting is a 2000 watt tmpy and a philzon 600
I’ve only been getting 15-24 grams wet
Grow space is a 8x8x7 and a ac infinity 6 in exhaust
My first grow with all the same equipment and a single plant brought me 3 oz dry looking to get somewhere around the same per plant
Do you have photos of your some of your buds and/or your mature plants? I suspect they may be airy with that lighting.
A support ticket will be helpful too, particularly your watering and feeding habits.
• What strain, Seed bank, or bag seed
• Method: Soil w/salt, Organic soil, Hydroponics, Aquaponics, KNF
• Vessels: Pots, Grow beds, Buckets, Troths
• PH of Water, Solution, runoff (if Applicable)
• PPM/TDS or EC of nutrient solution if applicable
• Indoor or Outdoor
• Light system
• Temps; Day, Night
• Humidity; Day, Night
• Ventilation system; Yes, No, Size
• AC, Humidifier, De-humidifier,
• Co2; Yes, No
No idea about tmpy, but if it’s a blurple amazon panel it’s probably under 300w at the wall. The philzon is 100w at the wall.
I’m guessing you’re far under lit for your space.
Do you have reflective surfaces around the grow area?
How many plants are your growing at a time?
Get rid of those burple lights and get lighting that will do the job. You should see good improvement from that alone.
Many of us use Horticulture Lighting Group’s products. I started with lighting like you have too. Lots of us did. They just don’t flower plants well.
I’ve been following the gh feeding list still getting low yield now the plant I grow room are bigger but I’ve for bout 2 moths to get them that big I’m using a 4x2x5 tent for veg
I’ve been looking at the quantum board and have one I built in my tent and every time I have the money to purchase the light from hlg they are sold out and when they have more I’m broke so got the one I have in closet from work which is led wit driver
I agree with @FlxerPowerand the rest of the group, not enough light, I am using blurples and they do alright for veg and clones and seedlings, but it’s just not enough for flower. Not only that but most of the blurples that claim to be full spectrum are not.
Yeah found that out so been trying to save up for a hlg
There are third party sellers of HLG products. Growerslights is one of them. I’ve bought my last couple of lights from them. They have a fair price and they ship fast.
I am ordering an hlg 260 v2 rspec on the 5th of February, after that these blurples are going into my veg/clone closet
Do you know how much you are drawing from your outlet? Based on the footprint even 2,600 watts of light would be sparse and I’m betting your actual wall draw is far less. This is likely the main reason yields are low with airy loose flower.
The single best investment in indoor growing is the use of high end lights and enough of them. Cheap lights you will want between 40 and 50 watts/square foot and high end 25 to 30. But that is the actual demand and not what the manufacturer tells you it’s ‘equivalent’ to.
I’ve used the philzon 600 on first grow ang got three zips after constructing closet went with the tmply 2000 just for more lighting and added the philzon
Actual draw from wall with both is bout 500
I did ok on my first one as well, but I was in a 42"x22" closet, and I got about 75gs(dry) off of 3 plants, I want double that on each plant.
