Mars Hydro Summer Sales is going strong
But the contest here has gone wrong
The admins have queried
since we all were worried
About where our Sara, may have gone

Mars Hydro opining
She's not out sinning
She will be back soon
Taking us past the moon
And we'll all be winning

Ok, so it's a good thing I'm not trying to make a living as a poet. I asked our admin team to look into it. SmokeSara is fine, but there has been a problem. She'll be back as soon as she can.

Do you have any journals using this light? From what I read it is top of the line, I can't wait to see :hookah:
My current perpetual journal (Temple of Bloom) is in my signature. It's years worth of journaling, so you'd probably be best to just jump in the current stuff.

Here's the day I started using them...

Just got the 250's

Around 24" (60cm), but im not fanatical about it. I start at about 30" (75cm) and just let the plants grow until I see signs of lightburn, then I raise the lights 4-6" (10-15cm).
Yes the TS SP is stronger than our other blurple lights. :D :circle-of-love:
I was at about 12" with no sign of light burn (Is that still to close?) but I raised them today to around 24" for a little better coverage. Just hopping my par value is still efficient to do the job ... It's the Eco 120, but sense talking with you and doing some more research it looks like I'll be getting the SP 250 for much better coverage in the 2x4 tent.
Haha Nola, you can try to use the ECO around 18'' during veg, will help you get better PAR output. During flowering 12'' is great. SP and TS will put out more lights and PAR, then you might want hang the light higher. :)

I've done a half flip. :3: I took two of the plants out of the tent, and switched these to 12/12 lighting June 30th. Rather than dropping the light, I'm letting them stretch up to 12" (30cm) from the light and will then start to raise it. This is a three-strain feminized seed run, so I need these plants that have one branch each treated with STS to mature faster than the others.

So after grown a fair amount of plants in the 3+ years of growing I can now say hands down that this Mars Hydro 720 is absolutely great over my T5 and MH lights.

Reason being, so when I start growing seedlings up till the the 4-5th node I would struggle to get undergrowth to catch up, this then ended up me having to extend veg times so that lower stems could catch up to the canopy, now my seedlings have been growing 18 days, they have been under this light around a week now and I've seen a huge difference, I would highly recommend this light, I'm excited to see how it does in flower :).

The actual draw from this light is around 280w so my goal is 1g per w in a 8 plant micro grow, I know it sounds a huge challenge but I can but try .

Haha, higher, if you love our reflector 144 already, you will love our TS or SP lights even more. ;)

Hi fellow Marsians and future ones too. Here is a quick update on my 2 TSL-2000 lights.
I am 10 days into stretch ( transition to flowering actual) and the growth is by far better than with my hps set up at this stage. I am quadlining 9 ladies and have given them 5 weeks veg before their flip. The lights have performed amazingly to date and now i have buds forming at day 10 stretch.
