    Well here we are again Round one was the test phase too test the lights and the growth patterns of this strain. I'm currently using clones from Round one they have been re-veg'd under 18 hour light and have exploded with shoots. Instead of LST which I used for the first round I will be fimming these plants and keeping all branches/shoots at uniform height. I'm only going to do a short veg period considering they are clones. I will be taking clones from these plants for shits and giggles and maybe just let them do their course with the bigger plants.

    Some differences between the first n second grow are (2nd grow differences)

    -Constant water flow - with Neuts

    -SoiIless Medium
    (store bought consists of Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss, Composted Softwood Bark, Verm and a "wetting agent")

    -Started from clones

    Pretty little ladies you have their Specialty! Are those UFO LEDs? How many lumens do those things pump out? Very Uniform growth there. Possible suggestion is to keep one of the bag seed genes as a mother plant for a nice SOG, keep it perpetual until your Nirvana seeds come.

    I fully vote in support a BlackJack competition between Specialty and GGTBOD :wink:

    Looking good my man!

    yea UFO led's 135watt which is basically a 400-600 hps in a third of the hydro! lol GGT actually convinced me to get them well the first one....the second one was casue i wanted more now im thinking i just may have to get like 3-5 more too compete on the lvl GGT would essclate too lol. i already have the blackjack seeds my friend. i also have bubblelicious all from nirvana. The Bagseed Crop was just testing my limits within the box itself hence why i opted for the second light for better more uniform growth.

    Lmfao yea i think ur aura of like 92345623598273462387 lights in one space TRUMPS my box anyday lol.

    Sorry to be that guy, but that is just not true. A well made 135 watt LED *might* compare to a 250 HPS, if it actually draws 135 watts. Likely it draws 90 watts and is closer to a 150 watt HPS. I know we had a conversation about all this before, and I forget the exact specs on your light. I only say this to help manage expectations, a 400 or 600 HID can put off over a pound of bud. 135 watt LED cannot. UFO describes the design pattern of the light, some people may be using it as a "Brand" but that is just a facade.

    Now that the stick is out of my ass, I can't wait to see your grow. I love it that people are using LED and experimenting. I am thinking about snagging up some blackjack beans too, I think JavaD put me onto them in his thread.

    Good luck man, keep going strong!

    (For some reason I can't see the pics in the OP)

    No worries bro lol someone has to be "that guy" every now and then. And my light each have been tested by an electrition they actually draw the 135. I was surprised myself next time he's over I'll get him to bring his tester n I'll take a pic or two for proof. I would be ordering more seeds just nirvana decided to be a Huge BAG OF DOUCHE! And don't take CC anymore....bahhhhhhhh!!!! Lol but I'm planning on getting me some more beans when I have the opportunity to do so. In the mean time I got these goin. I gotta Grimm and primp them again so I'll do a before n after and post the pics. I can't even see the pics......:s

    I agree wi Myc0, i would say 2 of my 135w ufo replaces a 400w hps, they are touted higher than that in comparative by the sellers, the electricity saving is still substantial and worth it by a mile but it would be nice to see straight up honesty in the sales info for fair and accurate comparative choice.

    I run 4 x 135w ufo and 1 x 150w ufo in a 4x4x8 tent (120cmx120cmx220cm), if i was running hps i'd squeeze 2 x 400w in same space and deal with the heat and cost, still runs up a hefty enough bill over a grow

These shrubs have been flowering for about 3-4 weeks now and are recovering from a neut difenency due to lack of attention on my behalf... they are also recovering from being tied up because they were a huge mess lol you'll see what I mean in pics enjoy!
