I’ve always been a c99 fan bet that will be some potent buds and that triple nova filled out awesome huh that c02 helps I’m sure lol I’ve been looking into c02 may try in a couple runs s once I get 100% dialed in my current run is leaps and bounds ahead of the last one how are you liking the arcada ghost been looking at it for a couple days now have you run that strain before?

A buddy of mine give me that seed.

So far it seems to be a very balanced growing plant. Has small “indica” type leaves right now.

I’m going to take 6 cutting from her and take the 4 best of those and have 4 plants that are all the Arcata host this next grow

No sir, no filters but it still isn’t as good as regular old white incandescent light for talking pictures like this

It’s due to the frequency that the hids pulse at they actually turn off and on many times a second and the bars are actually the different intensities as the light turns off and on. It’s actually what an instant looks like our eyes fill in the gaps

Really? I didn’t know that

Man I grew with HIDs in the 2000s. Never learned a thing about them 'cept they were hot as hell. Even the lower 250 watt lights could keep a plant warm in the coldest of nights. In Canada that’s probably great.

I actually always liked the cheapo lights just because they hardly ever got hot. Hardly any heat at all associated with many viparspectras, at least climate changing type heat.

My LEDs now are a little different. They have plenty of heat to battle. I put the laser temp on my heat sinks earlier and they were registering at 128° and are almost as bad as looking at the sun. Naturally, I’ve learned allot more about my LEDs because I had to build them. All I ever had to do for high pressure sodium was select the wattage I wanted and wire in the ballast. With LEDs you have to start learning more about PAR and micromoles in order to select the right light parts for your fixture forcing you to get an in depth education to build out your own.

There’s an exception to that rule tho for a square wave digital ballast I think it only turns on and off 6 times a second insted of hundreds or thousands. When u look at the frequency like the spikey line that gos up and down every time the line turns back up or down that’s where the light turns off. W square wave this happens much much less I wish I could draw a pic for u it would make more sense
