Thanks man! How low would you take them? I've got them at 16", but I'm only at 75% and getting 1050 PPFD! If I've got room to turn them up how high should I be looking to go do you think in terms of ppfd/DLI? They certainly don't look like they're being pushed too hard and expressing deficiencies so I'm assuming they can take some more?
Anything over 800 is a waste and potentially harmful. Unless you’re running C02 in a sealed environment.

You can push most modern varieties over 1k... but i'd only do it if your growing coco / hydro. If she starts to look uncomfortable, flush immediately..

If they’re asking here I’ll stick to advising 800.

Appreciate both viewpoints. They are in Coco and showing no signs of distress or being pushed to demand more nutes than I can provide without risking nute burn at current levels. I can't see myself going any higher.

I guess a lot of confusion comes from the hydro store guy saying my lights would never get me through flower, yet I'm getting 1000 at only 70%. Also weird because on the PAR maps I've seen it goes only up to 1000 at the peak points. Do they run those tests at 100%, or do they just set it so the highest point is 1000 then test the spread? Photone has been tested to be really accurate in iPhone 12, but I just can't believe a 300w Mars Hydro LED is putting out 1500 or more at the centre at 17"??

Buy a quantum PAR meter. Seriously. One of my best purchases. Ends the wondering.

I personally do not like sativas I’ve never been one for the high BUT I can say a couple that I have smoked I would recommend, one being Mexican Airlines which is by FastBuds and Orange Chameleon which is by Mycotek

I'm using Photone which I've seen tested on Migro and he says it's almost as accurate as the meters that Apogee sell v but I will invest in one anyway with the proceeds of my first crop. The little bit I will be parting with anyway

I love it how this thread has spun off into so many different and soooo useful directions.

One of the reasons I use coco is so I can nute them up till they complain, then flush, then go a little lower.

I'm tempted to get a light metre but it'd be pure commodity fetishism. I use a 100w viparspectra to scrog 2 plants at 8 inch so it's never something I really need.

And all these sativa recommendations are brilliant. I've actually started a spreadsheet though I won't get to grow anymore for a few months. This harvest was a strain on my girlfriend as the tent's in her office, haha.

Honestly if you love Jack Herer, I would personally keep growing it until you perfect that strain and maybe find a keeper mother to keep it going.
Otherwise I’d recommend checking out C99 or Cinderella XX.

fast flowering, good yields, very sativa in effects but can be easily trained into a nice bush.

Oh I gotta thumbs up that C99 that’s a classic and very very good.

Purple Haze, Thai, Acapulco Gold, Maui wowie, ATF, Green crack, Durban poison, SSH, SLH, Amnesia Haze, SourD, Tangie99, Strawberry Cough, Blue Dream, Train wreck, Jack Herer, Harlequin, Guava, Moby Dick....

Just so many I like; but some I wouldn't want to necessarily grow, unless I'm setup properly. Sativa's can be a big challenge.

Sativa. Just ok. I've never smoked a sativa that I wanted to buy some of. Still holding out hope.

Yeah. Another 30 years should do it. Maybe I should smoke 2 ounces a day.
Last time I saw real thai was almost 40 years ago. 30 years ago we were growing skunk and afghani. Maybe if the king legalizes it will come back. Weed is like music- people still love what they grew up with.

Where I live it's almost impossible to see any kind of decent sativa. If I'm going to try grow some it will be Dr. Grinspoon or nothing. Im not giving up. But it's like living in Germany and trying to find a Bud Lite. Just not a thing here. Trying to actually smoke a different smoke from another part of the world and get the best. Thats something hard to achieve. But worth trying. I won't give up. But so far nothing. Unless Northern light early 2000s is a sativa. Then that counts as one.
