In this journal I will test 3x Lush Lighting Lumenator 2x's with Back Widow cannabis strain grown from seed and instruct how to select a mother plant to base future genetics in future perpetual grows from.




Lush Lighting properly fuels photosynthesis while consuming less energy than conventional lighting!

The efficiency of a grow light is determined by its ability to grow plants, not size or power draw.

Lumenator 2x series LED's offer extreme intensity for smaller locations. Use multiple units in a tent to overlap light while evening out canopy.

Lumenator 2x Benefits
Technical Data
The voltage of each color of light determines the voltage of electron plants create from it's photon. Plants pigment's absorbing this light are sensitive to these energy levels. Fueling plants with the correct type of light will ensure your plants reach their full potential!

Lumenator 2x Light Intensity
Lumen and Par light meters are great tools for measuring how much light is reaching your plants. This chart displays the intensity and size of footprint produced by each Lumenator 2x. We recommend keeping canopy levels around 16" away. Allow for distance to decrease light intensity to natural levels.
Since one type of light may be completely different from another type of light, our lighting recommendations are specific to Lush Lighting products. For example, HPS requires more lumens because of the lack of UV par light. Lush Lighting has UV par light so the requirement for lumens decrease. Every grow light fuels photosynthesis differently. Lush should only be compared to other grow lights properly fueling photosynthesis.

What strain is it?
Black Widow, the original White Widow bred by Shantibaba

Is it Indica, Sativa or Hybrid? What percentages? Black Widow is a Sativa dominant hybrid.

Is it in Veg or Flower stage? Flowering

If in Veg... For how long? Flowering 8 days
Indoor or outdoor? Indoor

Soil or Hydro? Soiless

Here is my soiless mixture

I use peat moss, perlite, vermiculite and mycorrhizae and bacteria for my plants. I would mix your soiless mixture in a ratio of 60% peat moss, 20% perlite and 20% vermiculite. If you can get Pro-Mix HP you would only need to add 20% vermiculite and mycorrhizae. Vermiculite acts as a catalyst between nutrients and the plants roots as well as retaining moisture.


PRO-MIX HP Mycorrhizae - High porosity peat-based growing medium earth juice rooters mycorrhizae

Pro-Mix HP has 1 species of mycorrhizae added, I add 10 others species of mycorrhizae and more of the strain already contained in Pro-Mix HP. When I transplant my plants to larger size pots I use 1 teaspoon per 1 gallon size pot and 2-3 teaspoons per 3 gallon size pot of additional mycorrhizae granules.

Size of light? 3x Lush Lighting Lumenator 2x 180 watt LED grow light panels.

Is it aircooled? No, LED light panel. Phresh Filter 6in x 24in 550CFM carbon filter, Vortex Inline Fan 6 inch 452CFM supplied by controlled by a Titan Controls Saturn 5 - Digital Environmental Controller with CO2 Timer supplied by Lush Lighting.

Phresh Filter 6in x 24in 550CFM - Perfect Gardens

Vortex Inline Fan 6in 452CFM - Perfect Gardens

Titan Controls Saturn 5 - Digital Environmental Controller with CO2 Timer - Perfect Gardens

Temp of Room/cab? 72°-85° Fahrenheit

RH of Room/cab? 47%-70% humidity

PH of media or res? pH 5.8-6.2

Any Pests ? No

How often are you watering? Watering as needed every 3-4 days

Type and strength of ferts used?
I use General Hydroponics Flora series 3 part nutrients that can be mixed for all stages of vegetative growth and flowering. General Hydroponics Flora series can be used with hydroponic, soil and soiless mediums. nutrients flora series

I use Snow Storm Ultra as a foliar spray at 1.25 milliliters per liter in flower every 7-10 days and discontinue

use 1 week before harvest.

I will only spray Snow Storm Ultra just before the lights go off for the darkness phase of flowering.

I also use General Hydroponics Liquid KoolBloom and KoolBloom Dry in flower.

I use General Hydroponics Liquid KoolBloom at 1.25-2.5 milliliters per gallon from the start of flower until 3 weeks

prior to harvest then use General Hydroponics KoolBloom Dry for 2 weeks at 0.8 milligrams per

gallon and discontinue use 3-5 days prior to harvest.


I am using Floralicious Plus at 0.70 milliliters per gallon under LED light panels

Plants grown under LED light panels have a higher requirement for calcium and magnesium. I use Botanicare's Cal-Mag Plus at 5 milliliters per gallon.
