Yeah I was thinking not securing the heat sinks to the rails. I want to be able to focus the light where most needed as it grows. Like when the plants are small have lights slid closer together turned down. & then move them apart and up as the plant grows, cranking up the power along the way. Idk, something like that. Just thinking.Photos

2x Dutch Passion Auto Glueberry OG @ 27 outside
2x Dutch Passion Auto Duck @ 12 outside
1x Humboldt OG Kush Auto @ 1 outside
1x Humboldt OG Kush Auto @ in soil
Today I put the last OG Kush Auto in soil mix. it has about a 1cm taproot that is kinda jacked looking. I buried it straight up so hopefully it will just pop.
Keeping the autos out tonight I gave them another soaking of Spinosad because the last one was kinda wimpy bc it was sunny out and I did not want to burn em. Today I soaked em. Something had been chewing on one of the Glueberry.
Glueberry, no pistols yet, but looks ready.
Ducks (older) and OGK
Over in the tent the c99 is getting a lotta N and K, yellowing has slowed, it's the plant on the left, the DG is getting a lotta Ca, less N and about the same amount of K. Lower outside temps = lower inside temps too so I turned up my lights and turned on the 66nm for about 360w.
OK, general light discussion follows.
couple years ago, I bought a 4x50w cit cob in 3.5k. It's a square fixture made for a tent. I added two 660nm lights inbetween the cit cobs for a net wattage of about 250w.
When I went to a 3x3, I bought a 2x100w Vero in 3k to run alongside in the tent. Nets about 208w
They are both original fixtures as from Timber Grow, with the exception that I added reds to the 3.5k
I've thought about putting them in one fixture, but I like the different heights even in the 3x3.
So, they were made in a footprint per timber grow and i've kept it that way.
I have rarely ran them at full on....my electric is free nights all 11cents a kwh thereafter. Reason I don't run them full on is mostly because of heat, however when the house is cold, I got some white bud tips at 15-18" off trying to run them full out. This I am theorizing that all of them are still spaced too close together to run full on even outside the tent.
More spread is more spread if I removed my tent and just ran in the closet, I would space these lights out MUCH more.
