    LED vs HPS

    Yeah I have a temp probe in my canopy - running my lights at around 70% (3x Vero29 3500K COBs being driven at 2.1a). My canopy temp is around 2 degrees hotter than the probe at the pot level.
  2. Pure coco will retain more water than soil. OP has mixed 30/40% perlite which should help. My concern was actually way more about the plastic pots as they don't breath well - even with holes. It would make sense that it only an issue now (mid-winter). It is colder, so less evaporation happens off of the soil medium, and the plant transpires less because it is cold. Which means the plant pulls less water out of the medium. To give an example, I have other plants I grow in plastic pots. I had to water them everyday in summer, and only once a week at the moment - I actually killed a plant by water twice a week at the moment. However, it could be something else, the only way to really test is to see if the same thing happens to the fabric pots in the same circumstances
  3. It looks kind of like over-watering, is why I asked. But Im not the most experienced grower.
  4. How dry are they at watering? What kind of pots do you have them in?

    Whats your setup? If you don't have one yet, what is your budget?
  6. One should keep their words sweet in the event one is forced to eat them.

    Yeah, but you can get them for about R3k from china, locally they cost around R7k. But like I said, you pay for the convenience of having someone who knows what they are doing assembling, and warranties - granted you could just replace the entire unit for the same price if something went wrong on the DIY route lol.

    Eish China import is such a mission. LoL I bought a Mars Hydro ii 700w light, it now finds a space in my closet. Sent from my G3312 using Tapatalk Lol! You can also buy the exact cob setup I have from china, at a fraction of the local price. And QB if you look around. But if you suck at DIY or have no idea what to order, then you pay a local premium for someone who does, like growopz - they have good stuff.

    Rather go t5, way better. I'd honestly recommend going for LED. You can get from growopz, they make good stuff. But you can also import stuff from china for cheap. Bit of a learning curve but once you figure it out you can probably save a ton of money.
  10. Yeah LEDs are expensive off the bat, but you save costs in the long run. Plus they are super stealthy. And let's not forget Eskom is in what's called a utility death spiral, so electricity is going to get more and more expensive. With my LED my electricity bill doesn't even notice
  11. Congrats on being given the Banjölnir
  12. Thanks man, he PM'd me. I might well wait until next year as I don't think there is enough time for me to complete my grow. On a side note I can import the Vero 29/Citizen/Cree3590's if you all would like some I can probably get a decent price. Just not the enclosures/drivers. If enough people want I can put an order together. Looking at around R700-900 a COB depending on volume and type of COB
