What a challenge this is!

hey ,i call that a success @roost1


#343

Good job :clap:t2: Now comes the lesson in patience … letting it cure​:blush:


#344

Looks like it will hold you over for awhile. @roost1 great job.


#345

Excellent @roost1. Is that typical for your grows?


#346

Was my first harvest. My first two attempts failed last summer due to excessive heat in my garage. With the lights on in the tent and the fan full blast the temperature got to 113 degrees.


#347

Ouch! Note to self: Don’t roast your cannabis plants.:writing_hand:


#348

@roost1 @merlin44 my tent got 122 degrees and they survived. Don’t recommend it, there was damage, but they survived. Lol


#349

@dbrn32 I am gonna buy a new light for my 2’ x 4’ grow space. Which do you prefer?


320 watt XL QB- 324 Quantum Board Kit 2850 K spectrum.

Or


HLG 260 watt XL Quantum Board Led Kit V-2 3000 K spectrum.


#350

i love new grow toys!
both!!


#351

Either should do a great job in there. Efficacy is little higher on 288 boards, but I think the 324 board gives you a very slight shift in light spectrum. I haven’t investigated output numbers very close, but I’d say whichever is currently cheaper?


#352

The 288 boards are $36 cheaper If they are more efficient and will produce the same results that would seem like the better purchase. However, the 304 boards boast 60 more watts and a slightly different spectrum do you think the results would be the same?


#353

304 and 324 are different. Which one were you meaning?

The 288 vs 304 and the 288 vs 324 are two different comparisons is all.


#354

320 watt XL QB 324 Quantum board kit 2850 K vs 260 watt XL Quantum board kit V2 3000K. If you scroll up about 3 posts you can see them.


#355

Gotcha. In prior post you listed 304, which is also thing. I wasn’t sure if you meant 304 or 324 is all.

The 320 288 kit is technically the superior light in that case. Same amount of power out of 3 boards instead of two is more efficient and therefore more overall light


#356

304 was a typo. Each kit has two boards One is 260 watts w two 288 boards and the other is 320 watts w two 324 boards.


#357

Copy that. The 288 v2 is still a more efficient setup. In terms of amount of light, I don’t think you get a lot more light with the extra power from the 324. It does appear to have a slightly more flowering based light spectrum though.


#358

Thanks. I will go with 288 boards. I’d rather have the efficiency.


#359

Good choice. Hard to go wrong either way.


#360

i have my carbon filter standing on the floor, directly connected to fan and ducted out the top of the tent. First grow. No problems so far.
