The secret to life is…

…Timing. And we were fortunate enough to get our hands on the new Pro Grow LED PGX5-600 from Hydroponics Hut. A Complete LED Grow System, featuring UV + IR Full 5 watt H.O. Panel + Accelerator Chip.

I have a few plants waiting to finish up, so I figured we’d replace the Pro Grow 400 LED with the new Pro Grow LED PGX5-600…

After switching the lamps out, the first thing you notice is INTENSITY. With each flick of the power switches the lamp really started cranking out an impressive spectra, as near to actual daylight as I’ve seen. The Pro Grow LED PGX5-600 has a MCPCB (Metal Core Printed Circuit Board) for the best heat dissipation. It also has selective switches that allow up to 6 different settings. Flowering, vegetative, full illumination + accelerator modes of operation via selective switch control.

The unit runs fairly quiet for its size, which is about 25″ long x 25″ wide x 2.25″ thick.

The intensity or the Pro Grow LED PGX5-600 is AMAZING! It pegs the light meter nearly to the base of the plants at nearly 3 ft away. Sure i’ve pegged the meter with HPS at the distance, but the LEDs provide additional spectra that lacks in other HID solutions.

Even at the base of the "bud line" the light meter is pegged by the intensity of the The intensity of the Pro Grow LED PGX5-600

I really look forward to the coming weeks to see what the  Pro Grow LED PGX5-600 is capable of.

The Pro Grow LED PGX5-600 is about 30 inches above the median line of the canopy.

Within the first 3 days the plants formerly under the Pro Grow 400 (which were doing just fine) have rally clustered up, branches began to fatten and sag. Trichome production and density is really looking good too!

Check back soon, as soon as these are harvested we will start a new grow from veg under the new Pro Grow LED PGX5-600 from Hydroponics Hut
