Ok, i really know nothing about LEDs. As for age. Yip, I'm exactly in your shoes there.
Did you start with LEDs, or swith from HPS?
3000k is a better spectrum for flowering (I could have swore 2700k is ideal), but I read about that so long ago, I could be mistaken how many lumens does it put out, per 240W?
I started with hps back in the day. I switched to leds about 4 years ago. As far as I know 2700k is best but these have added red diodes. I don’t know the color temp the ladies see. Don’t know the lumens either. They have 2 of the 288 lm301H boards and meanwell hlg driver so they are super efficient.

Nice! The clone only East Coast SD is a legend. A monster yielder, and extremely potent.
Does she pop late nanners that are sterile?
It's probably the lighting, but it almost looks like it did have enough N going into flower. Is that the light? It's rare to be low on N, but I've seen flowers do that. It's always ended up looking killer due to the light color foliage. Do you take that about 70 days?
I miss growing the ECSD. It's one of the few strains that can break yield records

Oh dam, I'm surprised I remember 2700k lol.
I'm curious how many lumens per watt they put out, and my old school thinking is 5000 watts per sw ft minimum.
I can tell some LEDs aren't as strong, as the buds don't connect to colas, but that can be genetics too..
The biggest positive I see is cost, and use of electricity. In Colorado electricity was cheap. 6 cents a kw, except 12 in summer (greedy bastards).
The rent was cheap as well. Nutes, and equipment were the biggest investment weekly/monthly.
I have yet to hear anyone using silica in their nute solution.
Are HPS lamps still being used?
Do people still feed with Lucas formula?

A couple LED question for anyone who may know. What's the cost of a good quality LED lamp that would cover a 5x5 area?
How close can you get the plants to the light?
I'd imagine 220v control to run multiple lights is necessary (i guess not for tent, or small rooms?)
Do the light have to constantly be replaced?
Compared to HPS, do ya feed the same, or less? (I know that depends on the grower) ***That's for those who have used LED, and HPS.
Thanks, that will give me an idea what everyone is talking about

I shoot for 40 watts a foot. Running cost and less heat are the big advantages. You can get them with infrared and ultraviolet diodes too. Hps, metal halides, floros, and Lucas formula, and silica are all still around. Even rockwool is still around.

started as a seed plant. Pulled clones after harvest actually. Took 3 months to get et back. I wasn’t set up for clones that’s why I didn’t do it earlier. 2000w hps

Sweet. I could see myself walking in a grow shop, and not recognizing anything at all. I'm sure there are other old timers who know what's up.

Now that's a unique structure. Is she tough to trim? Mad Dog has ben around a few? Do you know the cross?
Top Dawg released it five or six years ago... It is Green Crack x Chem '91 (bx).
I ran the seed plants, and this is the first run of the clones of the keepers... So, I haven't exactly trimmed a lot of it... But looks like a pretty easy groom to me.
That’s a pretty flower!! It looks like it’ll knock you for a loop!!
Thank you... It definitely does. 🥴

Yes sur! The ONLY time I've ever seen nanners has been in SD. It's always come from the same cut, so I'd know they're sterile. I've seen a couple people take them down, as they didn't want to risk pollinating entire large gardens, even though they knew to look for em. The guy we all got it through has been running it for years now, and they're always sterile.
Besides using 40 ppm of silver, I've never been able to get my plants to herm, and I've tried. I've cut the lights off fir days, changed the dark, and light cycles, let lower buds go completely with out light for weeks....I've been very lucky with stable genetics.
Anyway she's legit. People say it has a "fuel" taste/odor. To me it kind of tastes luke puke, but in the best way possible. I have seen the SD end up with a couple seeds (a few per lb), but that's the extent. That's one of the strains I'll use when I wanna get real medicated. A potent strain. Classic!

I need a few clones of that one man lol

Just grow them till they change user 10 hours. They will Bernie after 14-16 weeks

Cut the 28th(13 weeks flower), Now she is drying. I'd show the other plant, but this one makes it look like I know what Im doing! I'm gonna try and get some real good close ups maybe tonight or tomorrow.

Got ya on the SD. Yeah, that definitely happens with some cuts. I've also seen, well have the one that shoots em a bit earlier, but are sterile.

ALERT******** Firstgrow guy...
Bottom pic, a little above center...nanner. did you notice little yellow banana looking things? Look just north of dead center. Being your 1st grow, others will be able to confirm.

It's also hard to tell w/out really zooming in, but you may have taken her down a couple weeks early. Looks like your trichs are clear. If you take more pics, zoom in like this, but in daylight, or 5000k, or higher
