OMFG, I've been waiting so long to post this grow report here! I just harvested my second ever grow, first grow from seeds, all baked under a plain-jane 357 Magnum LED unit, with a little supplemental coverage from a Kessil 350 Deep Purple. You'll all have to wait for the official weigh-in, as the meds are currently in the dry cycle.

Here are the details:

Tangerine Dream - feminized, from Barney's Farm
357 Magnum LED, original model
Kessil 350 Deep Purple for supplemental coverage
Supersoil organic soil grown in Airpots
Exclusively watered with rain water, with occasional soaks with actively-aerated compost tea - vortex brewer
4x4x8 tent from Secret Jardin
SCROG method
Custom built drip irrigation controlled a photo-sensor activated ON-OFF timer
Basic can fan with carbon filter for odor control

Now for the juicy bits:

Initial set up with some tomato plants keeping the babies company -

My first born:

Little teens. I thought I had a weakling, so I decided to give the more vigorous one the full power of the Magnum. I would soon learn not to underestimate the little guy:

Training time. The Airpots proved extremely useful for tie-down points:

Good god the stretch on this strain was hard to deal with. I had to lop one of the heads. I did not enjoy that task, but I could go no higher:

Let the flowering commence:

The obligatory bud porn:

And finally, the day of harvest. The two colas in front of that guy's face are the stars of the grow. Both from the same "sickly" plant:

I hope you enjoyed the show. I'll offer a smoke report if anyone's interested. A few weeks after a proper cure of course. I can't tell you how happy I am with this harvest! LEDs FUGGIN ROCK!!!!!!

What your nutrient reg bro. You couldreally get those nugs dense witha good line up. Nice grow would like to do an led in the future myself hopefully sooner than later . Your grow has mad potential try to do a bit more topping anf supercroping to keep um shorter. Not sure if u harvested after these pics of live flowers but if you did you harvested a bit to early . Those ladies could have finished up nice. keep at it youll get your grove and fulfill your wishes more than you would ever expect. All in all good job .Happy farming.

Ya just looked again you harvested way to early man, the tangerine is a bit airy but you could for sure have let them go another 10 14 days bro. Also a little N toxicity it looks like. Did you flush?

Hear BS is a very good priduct if and when i do go led i will be going with a BS, heard and seen the best from buddies of mine about BS and what i got from it is they fckn rock the house.
Cant wait to save some money on cooling if the LEDs give me a final product that is to my liking.

Definitely looks like you harvested way too early. How many days did you flower for?

some LED's cause white pistils to be produced even when mature.. like they just dont stop producing new pistils

could be that.. or yeah it could be too early

and OP

a few things id try and do diff next time.. use the net.. you dont need to tie down the plants on the pots.. top the plants 2-3 times (peeps have been calling it mainlining..) doesnt really matter on specifics just multiple tops IMO, and keep tucking the new growth back under the net.. as soon as you have it basically every branch sprawled out to the end of your netting border.. then flip.. and take advantage of the stretch by continuing to tuck the new growth in until you have sufficiently filled the net.. then let it finally grow vertical

not only do you get more bud sites but you can also control stretch and keep an even canopy

if you knew all this my bad.. just thought it might help

the reason i say this is your plants got too tall.. and theirs definite avail space on the net that could have been used to avoid this

keep experimenting man and thanks for posting this log

Led's are bunk

Little early on harvest
but not bad 4 a led
Actually looked pretty bad IMO LEDs or not. No offense OP.
^^^ This!

….with emphasis on LED's are Bunk!
LOL everyone's entitled to their opinion. I personally love how cost efficient LEDs are. And not to mention, my bud is still better than half the shit in dispensaries if not more.

Sorry bro but after seeing that I will never run LED:eek: Solis Tek 1k or nothing else for me. I want to see some dry pics when you can. Thats where you can see if them LED's are doing the job you claim they do....

Led lights have their limits like penetration, but with a decent scrog or sog this eliminates that problem. Next issue I have seen is footprint being what they actually say. Its always less than what they say period. Wattage you have to be pretty close to what your trying to replace. Proof is in the pudding, I used to think they sucked bahlz but I got one to tinker around with an I see their potential if applied right.

As for the OP, way to early, waaaay to early. I'm sure there was other issue as we can see from the pic, but first an foremost don't pull till she is ready.
