Thanks MadDabber this is my first auto grow! I figured they would really benefit from another LED on the other side of hps. I've been seing setups similar (led - hps - led) with great results.

Nice man I've seen some awesome results with the white's. Are you running QB's or a Cob type?
I'm running a hodge podge of lights currently. Hoping to regroup after this grow and get things updated and upgraded. I have a "300" watt Chinese led, a 45 watt cfl, 2 qb120s, and my buddy is letting me borrow his vipar par600

So I got my second GR480 set up last night so now I'm running 400w hps in center with a GR480 on either side, slightly angled inward. It's pretty damn bright in the tent. 720w/16sq/ft = 45w sq/ft. But im keeping these plants all together in the center probably consuming about a 3x3ft area so they are really soaking up some par. So If i am adjusting my footprint to be roughly 3x3, that would be like 80w per sq/ft? Right? One of the reasons I love the GR480's soo much is while the spread of light is just ok, the 2x2 an in par levels are absolutely killer. 2300+ Umol at 12".

Not much just a new guy checkin into 420 forums man. Level of knowledge seems high here I'm liking it. I'm very happy with the plants especially it being my first autoflower grow. Get some peeps!!

It's an ever improving set up! I'm not one of those guys that can go out and drop a few grand all at once to grow the way I want to. Little here, little there. Thanks buddy!

Aye Chappie! Glad to have you! Thank you I am very happy with these genetics for the most part I was hoping to get at least 1 of the "tall" phenos of Fastberry that can actually approach 50" but I think i got all very short pheno's!! some purples as well i think

Short phenols are better anyway :)
