Thank you for having me


This is what I love about a journal


Looking good keep up the good work what are your side lights there I like those


Waterproof Galaxy hydro 22 inch 54 watts per light, Amazon 39.99 they have longer ones too, they are 100 watt’s and thank’s


I bought my wife a d7100 Nikon camera for Christmas this year, it takes way better photo’s than my galaxy phone lol


I like your setup. Looks well thought out!


I used terracotta pot’s as they are really thirsty as a rule, the light’s are all at 14 inches from the top of the table, the pots are 10 inches tall, I wanted to be able to cover all the under canopy branches and leaves, also, so that when I grow sativa strains, I can tie my fishing string above each light, to the poles, in a criss cross, side to side and then as needed pattern, the table was originally added cause, I hate bending over or stooping, it’s not good for one’s back but as it turns out it gives me a better circulation of the air in the tent


I’ve got arthritis and several herniated discs in my back so I’m big on raising stuff up!

How many watts is the top led light?


600 watts viparspectra they last 100000 hours as opposed to the others at 50000


You might be a little close to the tops of your girls. How high above the top is that light? It looks a might close for a 600 … I’m thinking it should be around 3 feet.

Sounds like a nice light!

This from my buddy Al, @Niala

Here’s a chart for LED lights, it’s for equivalent watt, so if your LED light is 300W follow the chart for it, it’s not made for actual or real draw and it’s an approximation, that clarify, here it is :

120 W to 180W ~1.5 feet
180W to 300W ~2.0 feet
300W to 600W ~2.5 feet
600W to 1200W ~3.0 feet
1200W to 2000W ~3.5 feet

Hoping that’s helping as many as fellow growers possible


the manufacturer recommends gradual introduction for the first two week’s and then 12 " to 18" I have them at 18" now the plants themselves are indicas and they rarely ever get over 30 inches I’m 22 inches and going up, I thought about putting them closer and I want to but the 18" maximum is to make the plant strive for the light above, once they reach 30 inches, I will lower it to 12 inches, the par meter says, I am good and the soil light reading is perfect, thanks for looking out though I love it


Excellent. You’re definitely on top of it!

What did you wind up paying for that light?


259.00 but it’s on sale for 249 on amazon now


That’s a nice deal!


yeah I love a good deal lol


I grow for my wife and I, I dont care about making money but there are pot clubs out there selling you bud you know nothing about, thats why I grow for my wife and I, not for profit lol I usually wait till the next greatest product comes out and pick up the year before’s hottest item for about half the cost lol


That’s the way I do my golf clubs except I wait for the third year!


And I’m with you. I also grow for me and my wife. We both have chronic pain.
Weave mmj here and they have it tested but they don’t test for pesticides (or if they do they don’t publicize it). Either way I’m growing for the quality! Like you said!


I was 12 inches away not 18 inches I checked this morning good looking out bro I don’t touch my plants or the tent when I have had a few cocktails, you live and learn right lol Thank you for noticing that :relaxed:


they are growing so nicely


Excellent! Always good to double check! They really do look great and they are going to provide a lot of enjoyment!
