Well, just a fast drive-by; This is what we got at the start of week two. They go 8+ weeks to finish, The strain is Puppies and are fed with Remo nutrients at 75% once a week, grown in Black Gold Soil amended with some organic goodies like blood/bone meal, EWC, batshit, and soft rock phosphates.

I can see differences in the plants' growth structure. Both these plants were the same height and build when I started the flip.
We have a Mars 1600 on one side, and a 1000 HPS on the other.

HPS Plant





The transition should be over. BTW I did use a Cal/Mag+ Silicon, every other watering for the first two weeks when they stretch. Cal builds strong bones. And the Si gives it a tuff skin.


Hope all's gardens are doing great out there. Keepem Green

Very nice, NCW! :goodjob:

I suspect you'll see a slightly higher yield with the HPS since the Mars 1600 only draws about 630w; however, I also suspect you'll see healthier, more crystallized buds under the LED with the mixed spectrum. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out! :popcorn:

Will be interesting to compare at the end, I usually give leds the edge when it comes to bud quality. That's just based on my limited experience with both.

I am also interested in the final growing under HPS and leds, but this marsII1600 is only about 640W, I think its yield can not be as much as 1000W HPS.
