Thank you so much for your reply, and I agree, lights play a huge roll in the growth rate of a plant. I love the abilities I have now in some of the DIY lights that some of my buddies (@dbrn32, thanks buddy! ) have helped my husband and I put together. The potentiometer alone is priceless! We first put together some CRI-90 COBs replacing our 600 watts HID fixture and since then we have added a strip light fixture that my husband built me for Christmas. Can you tell what I love doing? LOL The control is so beneficial as a grower. Since improving our lights I have said that they are definitely our number one improvement as home hobbyist growers, we just love them.
Again, thank you for the wonderful reply! Nice to meet you, btw!!!
