Things are looking good over here! I'm not a fan of the seedling stage at all but you are nearly though it. So nice to see roots popping out of the net pot when I see that it gets me pretty excited.
Me as well. It's eight hours later and Gelat has reached the res. Black Sugar will break through the pot before my late evening check. By morning she will also be in the res.. From then on it's all up hill, watch im go.Things are looking good over here! I'm not a fan of the seedling stage at all but you are nearly though it.

I bought a UPS only for my fans. Our ideas are similar but for different uses. If the power goes off then my air system continues to operate along with the circ fans where you need it for the res pumps and fan. Seven hours is some good backup off the batt packMy thinking here is to keep this in reserve for the upcoming winter power outages.
Allright....who doesnt love new lights!!Can't you feel it.
EXCITMENT!!!!! Excitment is in the air.
No wait. That's the next dump of snow to hit us tonight and tomorrow.
But then again, Maybe, just maybe........
I have been waiting for this for over a week, nice surprise at the front door. Discrete as well, except for the delivery van hauling onto the sidewalk out front.
Some ten gallon grow bags on top but wait for it...
A brand new and improved version of my old Viparspectra 450 that has proven to produce nice bud with the proper conditions.
This new version is my lights beefed up twin brother. With a few noticeable differences and a few not so noticeable differences.
First off they are the same in length and width, but in depth there is a 3/8" increase to 2 3/4"
The light panels are the same size but I do see some difference in the numbers and placement of some of the different color diodes. We shall see what the difference is when I get them safely hung in the grow room.
Power draw (watts from the wall) are the same, but I thought I read somewhere that my old light was drawing 219+- and not 200+-, can't seem to find that at the moment because like someone we all know once said "I smoke you know". Real glad to see that listed on the light itself, a sign of the changing times.
The hanging points have gone goliath, from metal knock-outs to full on threaded metal inserts, a vast improvement and one I especially like.
I am loving the fact that these lights carry an Underwriters Lab. number.
Also that they daisy chain, a real nice feature. I have enough stuff hanging around me ears.
A very noticeable difference is the weight, with the new light coming in almost a half pound heavier at 8.4 lbs.
Part of this is the increased casing size but I have it on very good authority that most of it is an increase in heatsink size and upgraded cooling fans. No way for me to confirm this until after the warranty expires, which by the by is a limited three years, so not to bad.
These two lights are gonna rock my grow world. Super stoked. Doubling the power to 400 true watts to cover approx, a three foot by three foot six , grow area. Comes in at 38 watts per square foot so hoping this will take my bud size and , more important, density, to the next level.
Absolutely awesome work bro,love the systemSo maybe a little history about me and my system. Although I have been growing since legalization, I have a little knowledge dating back many years of the operation of large NFT systems. My system of today is based on what I have learned and is a cross between a NFT and a RDWC. Take your pick on which way to call that.
First try using a five gallon bucket for the res. ( for you younger canucks that's 20 liters) Single air stone, 220l/per hour pump
