It’s been a long while since we’ve bloomed out any autoflower varieties, from previous experience with Dinafem’s Cheese Autoflower strains (in the pic above), so Auto Seed’s “Purple Cheese” strain sounded like a good fit. Here is the write up on it:

Purple-Cheese-1Purple Cheese is a specially created autoflowering cross of Purple #1, Blue Cheese and Auto #1 (Lowryder/Ruderalis). The addition of the Ruderalis and Purple #1 has allowed us to reduce the overpowering cheese odour whilst maintaining a tight, compact flower structure. Purple Cheese is considered more indica than sativa thanks to the dominant Cheese genetics and delivers a strong, classic intense body stone. High levels of CBD will make this strain a contender for medicinal use. There is a slight fruity taste to the smoke with musty overtones of the original Cheese. Purple Cheese can develop blue/purple hues in both buds and leaves and colder night time temperatures will make the purple more vibrant and extensive. This autoflowering strain should stay in the range of 50-80cm in height, making it ideal for balcony, closets or places where space is tight, or concealment is necessary.

Pro-Grow 260X LED Grow Light - Dual Spectra Mode

Pro-Grow 260X LED Grow Light – Dual Spectra Mode

Nirvana Seeds, Marijuana Seeds Straight from the Source!

I really wanted to focus on a really great indoor grow light and what I think got overshadowed by a slew of great releases by Hydroponics Hut, the Pro Grow 260 Modular LED grow light.

We’ve done a previous journal with the Pro Grow 260 Modular that really didn’t do it justice, so for the next 8 – 10 weeks we’ll document out how this live grow goes!

Pro-Grow 260X LED Grow Light - Bloom Mode

For a lamp in the sub 300 watt class, the Pro Grow 260 Modular’s output is intense to warrant to keeping it 24″+ above young starts, especially if you should choose to run dual spectra.

Pro-Grow 260X LED Grow Light - Veg Mode

Perhaps my only “con”, and it may not even be justified, but it’s the placement of the Veg/Bloom lenses. When running in single mode.. i.e., Veg only or bloom only. Visually the light placement causes intense spots & dark spots on canopies.

Granted veg/bloom diodes dispersed evenly, within each circular light cell would no no doubt cost more and I can’t really say if it would justify the effort or cost to do so.
