Thanks kid606- and dont believe the hype-you get just as much resin glands with hps-I dont think leds can necessarily produce more glands-I havent seen it, and no ones shown me any proof.All in all its about even, I'd say.

beautiful man, I love it! I forgot how well 1 good ufo produces-2 weeks and buds are forming away-I like the extra floods -looks like you're thinking of an upgrade-feels good knowing these lights are doin their job.Great pics bro-send some more if you get a chance!

HOw long till they are done? Are they able to give u the yield that of HPS? What about the desity of the flower - any different from that of HPS?

fairly dense-not as dense as hps, my next grow will be 150w hps-270w of led- I know what I usually get with the 150-so we'll see.My observations on 1w led units is that they will grow pretty buds by themselves-just not alot of them.Not enough intensity.Add cfls-add a more balanced spectrum+ intensity-you have a better grow system.Add hps-bang!Now this pertains to your 90w ufo's and 1/2 watt diode panels.I'm not talking about the 20w homebrew set-ups on the net.I think you have one here-guy got REAL results-the ufo's are toys in comparison.

thank you my friend, the budded plants are Barneys Farm-Nightshade, the plant on the far right and far left are a mystery sativa heavy mix from greenhouse-someone screwed up and printed Himalaya Gold on the package, I've grown it before many times, and it didnt look anywhere near as sativa as those plants.

definitely do-responds very well to pure led.I did the same thing you did-first use all led to see how these things work on their own- you've obviously proved that to yourself- looking at your bud development, I predict a sweet harvest of high quality tops- btw-when I added a little uvb-a reptiglow(reptile bulb-26 wattcfl-) the development of trichomes increased noticably(not dramatically) but it's the trichs we're after eh? And props for beefing up the spectrum with floods-check out the cree 1w diode floods-12w-ebay for like 40US- I have 4 of em- A very useful supplemental light source-fills in those elusive spectrum gaps-or something like that.Some units like the Lumigrow are using red/white.But I've read that blue covers the useful light as well as white.So who knows-like this orange led thing-they apparently help with flowering and overall growth due to alleged carotenoid development.I dont think they know why it works truthfully, so the quest continues, peace

I'm all Nightshaded up-SHADY- what I meant to ask is, do you have any modifications planned for the next led grow-planning it was the fun part for me. It gets addictive.How could a simple hobby like this be illegal?

So are LEDS comparable to 125w or 250w sodium?

Cheers

whats up? I'm still backing my hps as a prima- primary light source- 125-250w will produce wonderfully in a small space at a fraction of the cost of leds- I'd go sodium first, then add leds incrementally-if so desired.

I think shiva may prove me wrong with that awesome ufo grow-I highly advise everyone to check it out-that's one ufo!!
