  • Hi cult I was wanting a bit of advice on LED I tried looking around but couldn't find any decent info I have a 2.4m x 2.4m x2m tent and I'm wanting to upgrade to LED but I'm unsure if the 600w LED light are the same as a 600w hps is this the case?? I also want to keep 1 hps in the tent just to keep a bit of heat in there... Do you think it's a good idea to use both in 1 tent??

    Thanks for any advice mate happy new year

    I am currently using a 1000w led but I'm finding the footprint to be too small. It's working for the couple I've got growing right now but I would suggest looking into cob lighting for more coverage area. (I will be changing to cob asap. Bigger footprint from lower wattage and good k value) As for the warmth issue I simply placed a small space heater in the room making sure it's not blowing directly onto the plants so as to create an ambient heat

    It depends on the light. you get what you pay fo with LED, go cheap and it will be vastly different to spending the money for quality. they dont compare the same with wattage. Good LEDs will out perfom hps w for w but be prepared to pay over a grand for a good light. LEDs give off heat so with quality upgrades you wouldnt need to keep an hps in there. Im an hps grower really although i have grown with LEDs several times. for me if its not broke i wont change it. Its not financially smart for me to change fully to LED because of the enormous costs that would involve. Go for a 600w actual draw rather than the equivalent also.
    hi Cult. i just want to ask you for advice how to start with watering my brand new easyfeed systems as i've never ran it before. what do you recommend for weg and for flower? i'm gonna run 16 pots with 4 hps.
    Hi @Cultivator , I have been following you. You seem to be a guru and I am grateful for some of the advice you post here. I have a 2x2x4 Grow tent with 2 plants. I have a King Plus 1000w LED Grow Light Double Chips Full Spectrum that I bought in Amazon. My Autos look small and stunted .... Do you think this light set up might be the cause? I bought a 8X4X6 tent, I would love to change my grows to that tent. What lighting should I use? Are the Mars 2 lighting setups worth while? Thank you for posting in the forum mate

    hi, without seeing your set up its impossible to say. i wouldnt use mars 2 as they arent powerful enough for me. i think they useful for supplementing lighting and thats it really. others may disagree but thats my opinion.

    id do less plants and grow them out. it be alot easier for you. but if you insist on it a 7 litre pot would do.
    Y I man how's it going cult a fellow Brit here not from your neck of the woods though, I have followed all your journals you certainly know your stuff and I like the way you write down to earth and honest with common sense, I am on my fifth grow about to chop in the next week or so I grow in coco at the moment I get better each grow and I pick things up quick and have plenty of common,my site is a loft with restricted height,so I am keen to set up my own custom RDWC with more head height, I read your feeding schedule on your coco chart so I am happy to crack on with that but could do with some advice with the lighting and extraction stuff, I am not one of these people that tight with grows, So a few pointers from yourself to help me on the way would be great if you have the time as I know your a busy fella if you have I minute I can tell you what I think and you might be able to put me straight as I don't want to buy twice, thanks cheers.
    Ive only just saw this message. Flushing will increase yield not harm it. In soil 10-14days before harvest is good.

    7 days if poss. even 10. it depends how heavy you have been on the feeds and how the plants have responded throughout the grow. if im pushing heavy feeds and the plants are still stealing nutes from the fan leaves I will only flush 5-7 days other wise up to 10.

    no worriers buddy.
    Hi Cultivator. I am as hoping to get some help. I am near the end of my grow and would very much like your opinion on when to start flushing. I have done a lot of research on several different sites and the information is very conflicting. First of all let me give you some background I am growing Critical. Northern lights and bubble gum. The soil is fox farms ocean forest with 30% perilite. The nutrients are fox farms trio and their soluables. I pH my water and feed only every other watering. The plants are in 5 gallon pots and I give them a gallon each every watering which is generally every three to four days whenever the pot is dry. I am not impressed with the yeild and I don't want to sacrifice any more yield by flushing to soon. I have already started to flush my Northern Lights and am now second guessing myself. I would appreciate your advice and critique. Please be honest I am trying to learn and not looking for a pat on the back. My journal is Killian's First Grow.
