As usual I’ve fallen behind in editing & journaling… Sorry!
Now then, not to steal the thunder of the Pro Grow LED PGX5-600… I give you the rest of the journal.
Whenever I test something out, I give it the “lowest common denominator” approach, meaning no fancy aeroponic systems, no slick nutrients with bottles of $upplement’s, no CO2… Just basic fertilizers, soil, water, etc. For this grow we went with F0x Farm soils & base nutrients. I want to show what this lamp (or whatever it is I’m testing out), can do in the hands of an average, casual grower… That said, I believe we hit well over the half-pound mark in terms of manicured harvest.
El alquimista – Samsara Seeds
This poor girl got a bit neglected as a result of growing so well in veg and early bloom, it needed very little attention. Unfortunately we got hit hard with a major triple digit heat wave and it wasn’t so much the heat as it was the lack of humidity, and small pot during the last week and a half of bloom, that got the El alquimista – Samsara Seeds’s root’s over dry & wilted – Something you really don’t want to do 🙁
Other than crispy fan leaves, I don’t think too much damage was done. Thankfully the wilted El alquimista – Samsara Seeds colas never lost their wonderful sweet, exotic, hardwood aromas, and stayed sticky with fresh trichomes.
Kaya Gold, Nirvana Shop
Nirvana’s Kaya Gold is a strain I’d recommend to new growers and experienced ones alike! It is hearty, fast growing, and very forgiving of mistakes. Another strain that requires little fussing. As you can see this Kaya also handled the heat and subsequent drying and wilting a better than the El alquimista.
To be even more fair to Kaya, this particular phenotype is not my favorite and is getting dropped from the gene pool…
There were a few Kayas grown previous that displayed much better qualities, as well as a newly seeded & bloomed Kaya that is being added to the stable. Look for it in a upcoming journal as we test out the ALL NEW – Pro Grow 750 (Selective Switch)!
All in all, I can soundly say as far as HID or any LED grow light, the Pro Grow LED PGX5-600 is THE BEST grow light I have ever used. Hydroponics Hut – Pro Grow LED PGX5-600 LED Grow Light is offering LED grow lights with Metal Halide/High Pressure Sodium intensity, with modern LED PAR and power consumption efficiency.
