What do you think about the dimmer though, does it change the spectrum level too, less power lower wavelength?

I'm still walkin on the interwebs... found out "yes the dimmer will reduce brightness, wavelength, and therefore Kelvin as well." Just think about it like a fire. You can have a bonfire or a small fire. The higher kelvin just gives a higher option for the bonfire... beavis & butthead joke here

Before anybody jumps all up in my shit, I just started reading up so... "DON'T TAZE ME BRO!"

I got the light set up, wow it's bright. The veg tent looks like a pro nursery, I put the driver outside the tent and now it's brighter than before and cooler. I used a 2x4 for a base and attached the driver to it. I was concerned about possible fire from the heat of the driver but it's all good, bright, and temps are down.

WINNING... Tigers Blood anyone?

Vegging girls looking better after their first watering with Cal Mag. The older plants are around day 90 of veg and have been feeding on just the 1.5 gallons of Fox Farms Ocean Forest soil to me. This is probably the soil I will use in my Octopot that just purchased.

All plants/clones other than the big one on bottom left (hempy Candy Cane) were cut/ germinated December 8th and just up potted from Solo cups to 1.5 gallon pots which gave them some issues

Octopot 60/40 soil to perlite medium is recommended which means I will have to add some to the FFOF soil which I already do for the potted plants. @SweetSue has seen an amazing increase in yields from the same clone vs Soil/Hempy. Watering everyday 7-10 days seems like a bonus as well!

Oh, you’re gonna have fun with that J! :5: They recommend Sunshine mix, but if you get the 60:40 ratio soil to perlite it’ll work regardless.

I’m not yet convinced it’ll increase my yields enough to go back to soil, but time will tell. Hempy’s been very good to me. :blunt:

Hey guys, Dan at @TimberGrowLights recommended I never run the lights full out. I keep mine at about 80% most of the time. You might want to back off just a tad to extend the life of the unit.
