    First Journal: Bubba Kush, DWC/Dutch Bucket

    Intro I’ve lurked around here for a few years and have followed along with quite a few grow journals. I thought I’d give a simple journal a shot myself. Maybe I can learn a bit, and others can learn something from my mistakes (and hopefully successes). I would consider myself somewhere...

    Used equipment, is it safe?

    First time using HID lighting. Just picked up a reflector, 600w MH lamp, and Apollo 600 ballast to replace my T5 setup. Hooked it all up, fired the light with no issue. On closer inspection, the ballast (model # uhps-d600) doesnt specifically say it can run MH lamps. Ballast is making a high...

    Did you buy real 1000W LED grow lights?

    Many suppliers sell 1000w led grow lights recently. It shows many growers are asking for 1000W led. But when you buy 1000W led, did you consider if your plants really need the leds with that high power? Is it real 1000w LED from the wall? If not, how can we judge how many watt lights is suitable...

    These LED lights vs two 600 HPS in a 5x5?

    two 900W LED vs Two 600W HPS I'm pretty sure two 600 hps would be better, but how much better? Can I get a great yield from two of these led ligths in a 5x5? Is the HPS going to be far superior? I'm not advertising, never tested this product
