Hydroponics Hut - Pro Grow LED® 260 Modular, LED grow light

Hydroponics Hut – Pro Grow LED® 260 Modular grow light

Here we grow again…  this time with the Pro Grow LED® 260 Modular LED grow light

Over the last several weeks we tested out the new Pro Grow LED® 260 Modular, LED grow light  from Hydroponicshut. As you may know, my rules for a testing almost anything when it comes to grow are fairly simple, I go with the bare minimum of care. Not to say I neglect the plants, but I don’t give them any special treatment, no supplements, no CO2, just the base treatment I feel a novice grower might with as they are gaining their knowledge. This way we can see in a normal scenario how well thing should go on an average.

 

Earth Juice advanced feeding schedule

Earth Juice advanced feeding schedule

For nutrients, we used the Earth Juice line, following the “advanced chart”.

The soil used was Recipe 420 from E.B. Stone Organics, which is a little less expensive than Fox Farms Ocean Forest, and I have to say seems to be more stable over the course of 8-11 weeks.

Our strains of choice are a cutting from our original Critical+SensiStar, and a cutting from a Sterling Haze from Nirvana Seed Shop. I did also have a Aurora Indica in the mix, but she was moved out to another space, as the overall growth was more than I expected during the first few weeks of bloom.
