Welcome to The DIY Lab! The goal of The Lab is to test out scientific theories and Bro-Science Myths in cannabis growth to determine what factors really go into optimizing yields, from botany to ecology to chemistry and physics. We will dive...
Hi to everyone here at:420:
This is my first journal since 2016 so I may be a bit rusty but here we go :rollit:
Budbox Pro white 1.5x1.5x1.8

Just doing Thread on 315w CMH lighting, for those interested in it, or finding out about it.
Firstly.... CMH- CERAMIC METAL HALIDE , or LEC- LIGHT EMITTING CERAMIC.
It looks an old school MH or HPS digital ballast and bulb set up.....
But its a WHOLE different ball park!
I use a...

Hey 420, how's it going?
Well, after a long and successful grow (I say this before it's fully cured), I'm going to get things going again for the next crop. I learned a lot from my last grow, mainly that I didn't utilize my scrog properly. There were also suggestions for super cropping but I'm...
What strain is it? i have a Unkown strain that is one week from switching to flower ( at least i think), and a Purple kush from crop king, and Blueberry from crop king, seeds started just put the blueberry in rockwool today. PK is still germ
Is it Indica, Sativa or Hybrid? What percentages? see...
Hey all! Just wanted some opinions on the lights I plan on using for my grow!
I plan on using Nanolux 630w CMH's for flower, Ill have one light per plant.
And for veg, I plan on using LED's, preferably one or two plants per light. I was looking into the HLG 600 quantum boards but I'm not too...
Hey there, long time creeper first time growing indoors. It's finally legal here in Canada and the wife okay'd the tent so I ran with it. I started from seed, germinating on November 19th, 2018. I'm fortunate to have a good friend who works in a hydroponics shop, so they've been pointing me in...
How can one tell if a CMH bulb is burnt out? During a storm our power slipped on and off a few times and when it came back on my ceramic light wouldn't work. Now question is, is it the bulb or the ballast?
Hello this is my first legal grow in Canada. Im starting this journal to document progress and pick up tips and tricks.

First post in the forum. I’ve been growing for about 16 years mainly outdoor.
Started indoor a couple years ago using 1000w’s HPS’s with magnetic ballasts. Later on I switched to 400w Phillips HPS with Lumatek electronic ballasts for efficiency.
I’m seeing a lot of discussion and...
So just starting out on my grow. 4x4 with 4 plants in 5 gallon pots. What wattage and distance from the plant should the CMH be? I have 3 auto’s and 1 feminized that just got planted after germination.
So the other day I ordered at 315 watt CMH with a 3100k Philips bulb from Grow Co. I've never used CMH before, but I have heard a lot of good things about them. My current grow looks like it's going to be a nice grow, but the lower buds just didn't get any light and you can really tell by just...
