    I'm looking at the Sweet ZZ as I have grown the photoperiod version and it was a great sucess, Fat Banana and the Hulkberry I'd like to try them for sure and a Sweet Skunk to round it off to 4 plants, the Sweet Skunk was the first auto I grew and the high was amazing, I always remember being that high laid on my bed with my eyes shut thinking I was walking down New York City with all the lights, amazing!
    The struggle is here again deciding on lights for setup #2, my choice is two Mars TSL 2000's, one Adjust A Wing 750w Hellion or one Series 2+ Red Spec 350w, anyone have any info on using any of them?

    Temp control is always a problem. My 12/12 is from 19.00 hrs to 07.00 hrs which helps, especially in the warmer months but I used two 150mm fans, one to extract and the other to draw fresh air in. I brought the air in from the loft, roof space and extracted to a chimney which went straight out the roof. Co2 would cool the room too but I had to knock off the fans when the CO2 would come on. I am only running 3 x 600 in this latest room and temps are already up there are 80 something but itsa work in progress so I won't be happy until its 100% right. I am definitely interested in the LED's and have been watching a lot of YouTube reviews on them. I will post photos of my new LED's when I get them but I will be keeping an eye on your results in the meantime.

    That's actually a great way to feed and vent your rooms, yes I use a Tornado 150mm extractor which is silent and I had a hard time always cooling my spaces which ended up causing problems with the environment so I was constantly trying to open tents vent them and doing that for 8h a day for the past 3 years was a mental and physical torture just so I could keep quality bang on.

    Now I'm using these two SP250's at day 28 i have got better results all around compared to my 600w HPS lights all around, bigger buds, at least 50% more trichomes but overall the plants love these lights and their drinking nearly 2L per day but every 3rd day I only feed 1L so the roots ran sick what ever is left in their but I was always on the sideline with retiring the HPS range and now I could quite honestly say I won't go back now, if you have not already got lights take a look at sp and tsl range, worth your wonga.

    I am always improving where and when I can so the LED's are inevitable. Old habits die hard but it looks like the LED's have arrived. I was chatting with someone else on another thread about a particular brand/make/model and he mentioned UV. UV wasn't, isn't something I concern myself with using the HPs/MH lights. I guess its not an issue if you're not hanging around in the grow room or have a tent door open. You any concerns about UV?
    I was growing for about 10 years or so but had an enforced break for about 10 years. I am a little rusty but its like riding a bike, hard to forget how to do it. I am still learning though and these new LED's are a whole other field of information to get to grips with. Migro is the name of that YouTube channel, not micro as I'd said before. His reviews and tests are very thorough, I've learned a little bit about LED's from him. There's many other channels as well, YouTube is priceless. Didn't used to have such useful resources. Overgrow forums was it lol.
