    I wouldn't until you saw presex buds. I put my second plant into flower before it had presexed and it has taken it longer to get going in flower. Thats a small sample size though and I dont know anything about your grow medium.

    people don't realize how much they can actually grow in a little closet space I don't think. Because you can achieve quite a bit even in a little closet like mine.

    Also I have not made the switch to 12/12 yet. I thought about your guys comments and thought id wait at least 7 more days, by then they should be ready. Thanks to everyone like GAZ and REX. Much love.
    P.S. will be doing some photo updates later today.

    Some 300 watt lights only draw like 100 watts mate, only way to tell really is a smart meter or research the make and model. Good stuff either way mate lol 100 watts is still 100.watts if you get what Im.saying lol

    Also start from seed. Had this too,not my nutes/feed . Was 99 humidity at night with lights off 1st time, moisture on plants then light/heat bleaches leaves. 2nd time fan too close to canopy, made tops wilt/droop. Small changes make big differences.

    Hey brother, fantastic to see you got that led light. This is just from what Ive learned on the interwebs so grab your salt shaker!


    Just from looking at the pics I think you have something like a China 300w 5w job which pulls around 125w. Thats a cool deal but it will light a 2x2 fairly well and is more than enough by itself.

    Im not willing to do the math but I would bet that it puts out so much light per square inch that, if hung from above, would be more efficient than the amount of space your other lights need. I would suggest you pull all of those other lights out and hang your led above your grow area.

    Still have your salt? Here we go. I ain't going to say you cant hang that light in that space and grow but your plants will be beat to hell by it. Without getting nerdy LED light, especially blurple, is heavy. You really need to be able to maintain at least 12 inches of space between your light and the canopy of your plant. Without it your plant will have short internodal spacing, stubby leaf growth and other such crappyness.

    Now yes there are ways to fiddle with the gigawatts and cram that light in that space but your growing in a dishwasher and Im growing in plastic bins so lets not pretend we are going to do that shit right now. You need to find height my friend.
