I just received this SE3000 to flower a Bubble Bomb I grew with the help of a SF1000. Thanks goes to Spider Farmer for this opportunity to show off their lights.
I have this girl 19" from the light turned to 80% giving me around 30,000 lux at the top. I've been feeding her General Hydroponics 3 part system and her last feed was 5ml/5ml/5ml + 2 ml PH up. I get a runoff ( from memory ) ph 6.45 & ppm 745. in good health and shape so far.
This should be a fun grow with this new light. I'm looking forward to see what she can do. I have other Bubble Bomb clones I kept under T5's though veg and they are about the same size. I turned 2 of the others same day under a 1000w HPS I'll have something to compare to

Oct 31 nice progress an colour I tried my first Scrog with an old hockey net I've had kicking around for years. I cut some of the webbing to make it easier to move some of the branches around. I have enough net to go another level if I need it...

i would love to do a scrog like that but i just dont see how my fat ass could get to the back plants to water and defoliate
Im a fat ass too it can kind of be a pain in the ass. I do the heaviest stripping and defoliating before I drop the trellis down on top. So basically instead of letting the plants grow through the net I just push the net down through the canopy instead. The hardest work is already finished before I drop the net. I have a watering can with a long spout on it so I can lean back there and reach the ones in the back.

Gotta put all the pots in front and bend them to the back. Clean up the bottom before the trellis goes on. 3 x 6 is easier than 4 x 4.

Yikes ! I could buy a lot of panda plastic, glue sticks, screws & 2x4's for that price...I'm with growsince79...no tents for me either.
Nov1 ...1 day after I put in the netting...I also trimmed off a few leaves that were blocking the light from penetrating the canopy.

Nov 4 Small buds starting to form, the colour is good and I've bumped up the light to 75% 17" from the canopy giving me a lux reading of around 33,000 at the top.. I watered her today and added 3/4 tsp of Epsom salts / gallon.

Nov 6, not much has changed, I turned up the dimmer to 80% & I now have it 19" from the top & 40 - 41,000 lux in the hot spots and 31,000 on the outside edges...I'll keep her there for a bit and turn it up a bit at a time if I don't see problems....I see with the bigger badder led lights they recommend 12" - 18" away in bloom @ 100% ...That seems hot to me...my first grow with it I'll move up slowly.

She's going through water quickly, I had to give her a drink tonight but I'll give her a good feed in the morning

I got this off amazon...says its good for led but with all the talk on this subject here I'm not sure they're accurate numbers I'm reading.....No matter its just a gauge to to go by, without something you're left to guess at least I can read & track #'s with the dimmer.'s different settings.

I turned up the dimmer to about 82% I get a lux reading now at 50 -51,000 in the hot spots and 40,000 at the edges. I fed her 6/6/12 today giving me run off readings 6.20 ph & 600ppm.......ppm seems low I'll have to check it after the next water to see if it is consistent.

I pulled a few popcorn branches off a couple of Bubble Bomb's and a GSC. to make some Coconut oil for my wife.....After making the oil I decided to add a bit of Chocolate,nuts & raisins. Makes a nice Chocolate bar

Nov 10 update, Little buds starting to form up and she can handle the light so I'll bump her up again just before her bed time tonight.
She's drinking a lot I had to give her a small drink last night at lights out and a full water this morning with 3/4 tsp/gal of Epsom salts.

Nov 14 I've turned the dimmer all the way up to 100%, there wasn't much change between 80 &100%. I have a max lux reading of 53,000 in the hot spots and 43,000 on the edges.. 18-19" away
I gave her the first feed of Kool Bloom with this last feed of 6/6/12/3 M/G/B/KB + 3ml up/gal.

Ii may have fked her up, I found a light leak by accident. lights were out and I'd lost my car keys, scrambling around to find them I opened the door and not only found my keys I saw a crack in the divider between rooms. I was able to quickly duct tape it up but I think it has been a couple of days since I moved things around in my veg room and I guess I knocked the divider enough to separate the panels and the light seal was not 100%...

Nov 16 light at 100% 18-19" away. I watered again today with 3/4tsp epsom salts / 4liters She is thirsty. & the humidity has dropped so I have to keep an eye on that otherwise she's growing well and I don't see any hermi trait's yet.

Nov 20, It looks like they are around 4 weeks in flower. Yesterday I fed them 5mlmicro/5grow/10bloom/5koolbloom + 3ml up...The run off gave me a ph at 6.50 and a ppm of 1175....I think its a bit high in ppm because of 2 feeds in 6 days...She is going through a lot of water.

I'll saturate the soil very well on my next water and let her sit in the runoff and suck up as much water as she wants...maybe I can get an extra day between giving her liquids.
