That LED strip looks awesome. Any details on the ppf and ppfd at distances? Be awesome for the micro grows and space buckets.
And I for sure have some ideas for this. Ie.
In a low ruling environemnt. Like my current room at 6 feet - some nuisance utilities here and there. (I’m 6’1 :joy:). Because of photo tropism IMO one could grow plants side ways. Support branches kind of like espelier (training for grapes and fruit etc) the apical dominance and photo tropism will make the plant grow as normal just sideways. Infinite “height at that point”
My room is 15 feet wide for example

Giant sativa from the tropics anyone?
If I get the trial light from the other guys I may get a tent and attempt something f like this. With my 100 day in flower “m2” strain from Elev8
(Four way cross sativa “landraces”) very excited.

One could then line the top/ceiling with this type of light (depending on ppf , was thinking bar lights would work well) then the plants are receiving more light on "underside or lower branches than typical. At the same time it’s an efficient way to LST without much actual bending and training. Because of gravity I believe the plant will aim up if there is some light there (like growing out sideways under a trees’ canopy. It will follow the brightest sun until it’s free. Then go up from there.
I’ve seen flowers from LsT training just beging to set self “shared dominance” and leaves and flowers will also twist towards the light where possible.

Sort of confirmed this idea when I hung up the @fluence vyprx+. There was so much ambient light all of a sudden that the plants lower leaves didn’t attempt to raise and stretch for light anymore. Wasn’t a full canopy across room. And I have very reflective walls. Ambient light went for around 50 to over 200-250 depending.
(Debating growing lettuce/herbs on the walls now. Haha. Beautiful light spectrum. And powerful light.
I’m still debating diffusing this light with a sheet of poly/thermal blanket from the greenhouse industry. Loss of 6%-12% of light is more than ok with the vypr. And I think the diffusion of the light would be very beneficial. (Not sure if from my type of reflective insulation. But makes a laser pattern on the ground I’d like to see if it changes anything. Would also create a self maintaining zone for the heat of the lights and the environembt of the canopy.

( new kind of product from a company I met at greenhouse conference.
Will have more details in future when I’ve contacted them again.)
Was the most transparent/translucent thermal blanket on the market to date. And I only need a “sample” compared to one of their typical orders. But salesman seemed curious at the time. (And ridiculously unaware of anything in the industry.)
Is it beneficial to hire someone who is good at sales?
From my personal experience sales is done trough information to the client.
Allow them to make decisions and be there to support and inform. The amount of sales increase is amazing.
Little more work maybe.

And I will say they are not current on lighting tech with that blu-urple colour spectrum(for cannabis anyways) there may be room for it somewhere. Full spectrum is now proven. And will flush or the rest. Once cannabis cost/production matters.
And standardized industry testing beyond this “semi niche market”.

The kicker is that qualified business decision-makers will go to events, and for a business like ours, if we close one deal with a lead from an Expo, we pay for 3 years of expo fees, shipping, time, etc. It’s so very much worth the investment, if you can close deals with buyers.

That said, every single show is a roller coaster of anxiety, fun, and frustration (usually with Freeman) - so I completely understand businesses’ reluctance to participating.

Double-edge sword at its’ finest!

See you at the expos!

There’s so many of them these days.
A show means a few sales people off the road for a week (the show is during the weekend, there’s a few days of traveling and some rest to catch up to after a show). So it is not only the investment in money but also in time.
We’ve had a year with 20 North American trade shows which was too much, and decided to only do the ones that are really worth it.
We have our sales team walk a lot of shows these days: very economical, they meet many customers and costs are only a fraction of having a booth.

So we have not attend this event before, would appreciate some feedback on the event. It appears that there is no shortage of events to attend, but want to make sure that we get an ROI on attending. All input is appreciated.
