Yea temp should steadily drop, with 1 or 2 little spikes, for the rest of the year ... GL
Yeah, over the hump for sure. Veg lighting not huge deal. But for flower 1k only. Small bulbs just don't penetrate well.

Something I like about small lights,,, more points of light in a room... Take a 5X5 tent, and put 1 1,000 HID dead centers,,, or 4 250 HID watters evenly spaced? I 'think' the 4 wood out produce? That wood is my guess... When I run the big lights,,, even tho I don't have a room full,, I still like to run a light rail,,, even if only a 2' trip. Gets lights to get alittle better penetration...... Now I know that woodn't do alot of good in a 5x5,, light dead center should be plenty for the corners,, But I still wood opt for more points of light if I had the monies and space and giddy up and go to put up and maintain...

But what your running is plenty to do whatever you need done in there...... 4/250 lights to me is in a perfect world?


GL with them... You can see how the Purple Urckles are acting. You could top them one more time and that will let the Desiels catch up? That's what I just did... All good and GL with the grows.

Yeah, I used to think that way too. But they (lights) do not stack. 4, 315w could grow 4, plants but only on exposed upper branches. Even my 600w chps will not go below top branches. 1k or de 1k, will shine to the floor. I'll flower with one 1k hps, and my 600w chps. Should be plenty of light. But still not as good as your 1500 watt bulbs.

Yea but my 1500 watters have alot of 'dead' space and open-air waste. Now put a 1500 in a cool tube and then a 5x5,, that should do it? But really these bulbs radiant alot of heat.. Probably more per watt than a 1000 hid? Oh well,,, is what she is... And you have plenty,, period.. I'm always a believer more is never enough......... I'm kind of hopped about blasting a crop with this LED? Could prove interesting. I hear plants kick out heavier coatings of trichomes? Yet to be seen., Last crop I tried,,, the LED held it's own.....

And the heat was alot less than my 1000 next to it.......... She draws like 800? Talking out my ass right now...


But the youngens look good... Givem a bath acouple times,,, for safety sakes......

Your right about heat. I like a 10° gap when running 1k or more. My garage dips into low 50's to high 40's. When I'm that cold I can run as much light as I want. Not there yet, but soon. Mid October should start the cold nights.

Red Diesel looking about 1 to 2 weeks behind PE, but still looking good.





Purple Eurkel looking insane, not even in out of 3rd week of flower, crazy strain, thanks @Norcaliwood.

Looking awesome, Brother! That PE is gonna be a keeper! You could see by how early she started frosting up. Can't wait to see in another month once she's got some weight on the buds! :yummy:

You must be getting some nice cool weather to be able to run all three of those lights at those nice, low temps! That setup is gonna rock!

Tent stays in garage with door cracked about 4". Outdoor temp lows are high 40's, and tent stays about 12° warmer then garage, lows in garage will hit low 50's. Highs in tent are in 77° early in night and drop to 66, 67, by morning. My best upgrade was moving to 240v, from 110. Allowing me to run up to 4, ballasts.
