Has anyone ever used a system like this? If so how many cycles do you run per day? Thanks

4. The answer is 4. The instructions recommend 2-3 but I've been doing 4 and it's working out good for me. This is a test run for me to choose the best pheno which is why the growth is not very uniform. It's also the first crop I've done in years but I'm jumping right back into it. This truly is my passion and I'm so fuckin excited to be doing it again! I probably won't update this thread until i harvest but i just wanted to show you guys what I got going on. I'm not new to hydro but I am new to this flood and drain system. Also i am going to be running CO2 which I am new to also. Maybe I'll update when i set up the CO2 system. We'll see

I suppose this phase is worthy of documentation. I just put my scrog in. Last night they received their first 12 hour period of darkness. It's a 9 week strain so I'm looking at harvest right about Christmas time. Gotta love those Christmas trees to put you in the holiday spirit!

This bud is my favorite pheno from this new strain I'm growing. This is the one I'm gonna keep. The strain is French Macaron by TH Seeds. The smell of this bud is out of this world! Exotic fruit that's been sprayed by a skunk!

So i just got a new LED, first one I've ever owned/used and I couldn't resist the temptation to put it over some plants that already had a perfectly fine light above them. The plants seem to like it but it's still really premature yet for me to decide whether or not i like it! One thing i can say about it is that you can get better photos than under a HPS

I don't know if this issue has been solved with later models or if it was something to do with his setup.... But... When KC first switched to LEDs like 10 years ago, he was having some issues with them bleaching his plants....

 

Just somthing to consider... I don't know if he was using too powerful a light, too close to the plants or what it was... He probably told me and I just don't remember...

This is a different pheno of the same strain, French macaron. This one was allowed to go 10 weeks

I think LED's have come a long way in ten years, cost sure seems to have dropped down anyway

Yeah about 10 years ago i know a couple of guys who bought those UFO LEDs and i wasn't impressed by them. I've pretty much been waiting until LEDs could compete with HIDs on a power level, and this LED that I got seems just as powerful as at least a 600w, maybe even 1000w. But I've yet to see how it yields and that's what really matters. But I'll post how it does in a few months

I like mine so far but I don't have a ton of grow experience. As long as it last's a few years I will be happy for 130 bucks

 

I used hid's a while back and then went to florescent out of paranoia. Way better than the fluorescent anyway!

 

I hope to hear what you have to say about the difference.
