Here are a few pics of my CMH trees!
Very nice shrubs,great kickoff to this here thread
Thank you, thank u!
Wow! ...you sir have put this into perspective can you imagine a trellis in a 4x4 per light?
I'v tried something similar to this a few years back. I actually built mini cages around them. Now these days I use small hooks that I screw into the joists and then I tie mason line to the hooks to help support these monster king kong colas! I also use those 7ft green stakes from Home Depot & pound in them into the perimeter around the plant. I'm able to yield 15ozs-32ozs per plant like this depending upon the strain. I always try to tie down the tops & keep them away from the bulbs or else they would end up like crispy critters!
What are them bulbs 315s
cmh doesnt work geeze.
Yup, can' go wrong with cmh. Getting 1# per 315 cmh is very attainable. If your a competent grower and have good genetics
I had my personal best 4 x 4 grow ever with a 315 CMH vertical phillips 3k bulb. I almost adjusted things and i thought well how good can i make that light work. I think I will stick to 315 CMH and timber for small tents forever.
Yeah Ive got afew 315 cmh lights but I didn't think they could do tall plants like this I prefer growing big tall plants like this I also think the 3k bulb are best as the 4k don' heat the room up enough in my area I started a hybrid system Solis tek hps/cmh Now as the hps do get more weight
Actually the 4k bulbs run cooler than the 3k bulbs.
Can I ask how long you vegged for.
I vegged mine under a 4k maxibright bulb but are no where near as tall or dense as yours and your node spacing is much tighter than mine? When I switched to flower I started using a 3k lumii solar along side the 4k bulb.
Ibe added some photos so u can compare, yours are like twice as big and 5x denser haha ( I know I've still got a couple of weeks to go buttttt I want yours)
Nice trees and room!
If your asking me, genetics play a key role, then environment. I have killer strains I run, hence my $ tag on them.
I also keep my hoods close for better light. Philip's bulbs only, testing was done, and Philip's beat everyone hands down. With the 3xception of a ushio 4k bulb that produces 1.2iu more UV than the Philip's bulb.
I also use a net, vs stakes. Cmh can't penetrate like 600s do. Reason a net is key
Thanks bro, and yeh sorry new to site haha
Do you not get light burn having the lights too close? Would it be a good idea too move lights closer during flower or is it too late?
Also do you hand feed or hydro/Dwc?
Thanks for your help
I use larger hoods, so I can keep them.closer w/o issues.
I've never had bleaching on almost 2 yrs of making the jump.
What hoods do you use?
I don' think I can change mine because the ballasts are attached to them or is there a way you can take the ballasts off?
I'm gonna move lights a little close tonight and see what happens, fingers crossed I don't mess them up ☺
Big kahuna hoods
I own 7, but only use 6. 4x flower, 2x veg as needed.
Good looking grow!
