    still using mine,has lasted well for couple o years.
    takes some learning to figure its ways but i make 90g pp doing my autos steadily.i mainly use it when temps etc become hard to manage when using my hps or even my cmh.
    only tips i have really is keep the glass very clean,seems to get grubby very quickly,oh and when using both grow and bloom switches keep it up high,lowering only a tiny bit each time,(dont use the heat/back of hand method used for hps etc),even if things appear slow,growth will suddenly kick-in when you find the sweet spot(leaf tips reaching for the light.)

    looks like youre growing in red coloured concrete?

    I mainly use mine for seedlings keeps em nice and squat (like yours). Growth can be slower than MH but IMO the Viparspectra LED stops lanky seedlings.

    As gotch mentioned don't underestimate their power. I keep them high most of the time as I don't think you gain much getting them closer. I use my 450 with flower and veg switched ON even for seedlings as I think the Vipar is on the blue side anyhow. I also bang them in with my HPS when flowering.

    Also agree with ggotch concrete ain't the best growing medium for seedlings.

    nothing current pic-wise but heres an older one of some of my led panels in action,was a steep learning curve in those days and i nearly junked them sometimes but perseverance has paid off.
    i still favour my cmh310 but wont be getting rid of my leds.my hps rarely get used as the temps often wipe me out in my tiny growspace.

    stick with it chap,itll come together one day and youll wonder what all the fuss was about

    cheers gardro tbh that grow will remain in my memory for ever,was great fun,and only using the early cheapo 3w led panels n all.
    tbh i still think the early 3w worked way better than the newer 5w+ leds,unfortunately they dont seem to use them anymore, dunno why.

    I miss these blurples, very peaceful colour

    They never run the 5w diodes at anything like 5w either
