My Frustrating Journey to Find the Right LED Grow Light…

This post is very long, and it eventually asks “which should I buy”, and it’s not my intention to make anyone mad. So feel free to quit reading now if you’re put off by such posts. Otherwise, I need and appreciate your help.

I seriously need an LED grow light to replace my 600-watt HPS in a 3’8″ x 3’8″ x 8′ grow closet. I don’t have the tech skills to build my own. But I have the money to buy a good light. I can spend up to $1500 (the less the better). But there seems to be no web sites dedicated to comprehensive, independent, unbiased reviews of LED grow lights.

I’ve been looking, researching, and reading for months. The only thing I’m sure of is that most companies exaggerate their claims, and I can’t tell the difference between those that do, and those that don’t.

I’m not interested in startup companies – only proven companies with many satisfied customers. And I’m not necessarily looking to increase my 600-watt HPS yields – just to replicate them with less consumed power and significantly less generated heat (my yields are very good).

I spoke to a Black Dog LED rep yesterday who wanted to sell me a Phytomax 600 for $1600. He said it would replace my 600-watt HPS, but would consume about as much power and generate about as much heat as said 600-watt HPS. Oh yeah? Then WHAT’S THE FUCKING POINT? Yet one web site that claimed to “independently review LED grow lights” rated the Black Dog Phytomax as the #1 LED grow light for 2016.

I’ve googled “Best LED Grow Lights”, and a thousand variants, and I get no consistent results. Most every so-called “review site” gives a very different “Top 5” or “Top 10” list. Very different. I found one web site that had a “Best LED Grow Lights” article for 2015, and another for 2016, and the two lists had almost no grow lights in common. That much variance from one year to the next from the SAME reviewers? No fucking way.

This smacks of “Good Reviews for Hire” that are little more than (un)veiled advertisements. The idiots kinda give it away when they conclude their “unbiased” review with something to the effect of “Let the XXX LED grow light improve your growing TODAY!”, and provide a direct sales link.

What I’d like is to find a “Consumer-Reports-like” web site that gives independent, accurate, unbiased (i.e. unpaid) reviews of modern LED grow lights.

Or get some recommendations here. Rollitup happens to be the most active LED commenting site I’ve found. So I’d appreciate ANY suggestions based upon the criteria listed in my post.

Thanks, or apologies, whichever is appropriate for your response.

Mainlining (Nebula’s Manifold)

Yeah, I get that….

But after I make the manifold, then the 8 colas… Do i remove the fan leaves from the original two main colas?

I know NugBucketa removes all growth. But Nebula’s is slightly different and she makes the 8 colas by topping to the 3rd node then removing the 2nd nodes growth on the two main colas. So you now have four on each side.

My question is… Once I have the 4 on each side at what point do I remove the fan leaves of the growths I’m keeping.

Make sense?

couple issues, with pics need help. PH / Fungal?

I have moved recently and my ph meter took a crap so i just went blind for a bit.
I was using a 30/30/30 mix ( coco/Pro mix/ Perlite) with some dry ferts mixed in, these pics are what happened.

I dont know if its fungus issue or what, but whole plants have died starting from the bottom to the top.

I used a very weak bleach solution in the soil with the plants that are left in soil/coco/perlite. (Any plants that are left in soil when done the soil mix is being tossed as well.)
Then I did some physan foilar sprays. After the bleach in the soil mix i did see leaves start to point upward again.

I went back to coco and perlite only.

But these symptoms are on all the plants that where in the soil mix so far i haven’t seen the same on anything coco, only the what looks like cal/mag and some of the seedlings jiffy pellets dryed out and i think those that dropped and wilted are done for.

Here is the soil coco perlite fert mix pics. I cut the stalk and dont see any of the darkenening that is supposed to come with fusarium.


Now i started some seedlings, in jiffy pellets and finally grabbed 2 ph meters, the water was at ph 8.0 450 ppm from tap.

All kinds of screwy shit could have happened but below is a pic of what im trying to figure out with some of the seedlings drooping. Also these seedlings did not do this till the room they where in hit 93 Degs for a few days. They are now in a 72-75 Deg room and im waiting for the coco to dry up a bit before i add a cal mag treatment.

P.S. The plant in this pic first 3 photos, was 2 ft tall in a red solo cup.

Any ideas Fungus, TO many PH swings with Locks outs on the larger plant?
Seedling cal mag ?
Lost
