After sitting down and doing the math, I have satisfied my curiosity that this is right and why. It's a good day, this has been bugging me for a while. Cheers!Sunlight does behave the same way, but you need to realize that the important difference is the distance from the light source, not the distance between different parts of the plant that is being hit by the light source.
The sun is 93+ million miles away. The three feet between an upper plant bud and a lower plant bud is nothing in terms of the amount of light energy that hits each. But if your LED fixture is 18 inches from a top bud and 36 inches from a lower bud, the lower bud is getting much less light energy because there's double the attenuation.
Btw, in case anyone cares.After sitting down and doing the math, I have satisfied my curiosity that this is right and why. It's a good day, this has been bugging me for a while. Cheers!
Hey sshz.. I did a search for the sweet zombie thread, but there was so much chatter on this thread I can not seem to find the new one. Though I'm pretty new and have not mastered this forum yet.A new thread has been started for the "Sweet Zombie".................
You'll never believe this, but I was thinking about light again. I came to a realization: if I can get to some threshold for my canopy (let's say 30k) by having my lights close in and dimmed or up high and full blast, I should expect better penetration with the lights further away because the extra distance is less meaningful vs the power of the source.
Impressive grow congrats ! It will be kool to see ya do it again ! I’llFinal weight report.............this is NOT the final number, just an update. So as stated, 73 are dry and gone. The last 7 plants weight is currently at 36 oz. and it's dry enough to smoke well. I'm figuring another 2 oz lost for continued drying, so that would put us at 107 oz. This is just an estimate, the actual final number will be posted over the weekend.
And for sure, the later stuff leaning towards the Golden Goat is definitely better than the earlier Platinum Tangie stuff, which finished earlier. The earlier stuff looks better appearance wise, but the quality can't compete.
