@ mopman, thanks bro, I too wanna see what the LED can do as i am thinking of doubling up and getting another totalling 400W for my money maker world cup grow. :D

@ Maffro, thanks bro,had the twilight hanging around and wanted to test the light and get used to it before my cup grow.I needed to do a grow which would finish fast the choice was between super critical auto and the twilight. I decided to go with the twilight 12/12 from seed which would be a couple of weeks faster to finish as the supercrits would naturally veg for approx 21 days before autoing into bloom phase. :D

Thanks for dropping by

Thanks bro, always sad to lose one :( but thats life.

I am so pleased to eventually have bought an LED, I'd been wanting one for a year. It is amazing how much the tech has moved in just a year and prices getting better all the time too.

We are definately seeing more of them popping up in SH Forums more and on the interweb and youtube.

Thanks for dropping by bro. :D

Peace be with you

Hi Hunters,time for an update :)

Today my lil'ones get potted up. Todays date 23 nov 2012

A quick look at how they have grown.


Potting mix - 3 parts potting compost , 1 part perlite & a small handful of hydroton clay pebbles


Potting mix mixed


Small quantity of hydroton is put in the bottom of a 10cm/4" pot for drainage and good airation


The pots are then filled 3/4 full, allowing space for the coir pellets containing the seedlings


A small depression is made and a sprinkling of Mycorrhizal fungi is added


Mycorrhizal fungi


Coir pellets containing seedling are placed in the pots directly on the the beneficial fungi granules


The pots are filled around the coir pellets and gently firmed in , avoiding compressing the compost to much.

The top of the coir pellets and the surrounding compost does not go above the internal rim, allowing for watering.


Finally they are given a drink, i have given them a weak solution of seaweed plant growth stimulant, really good stuff and make lots of roots.


Thay still have warmth from the bottom from the heated propagator tray. They are also staying very short with no stretch, exactly what i expected from my LED light. :D

until next we meet take care

Peace to the highest
