A quick update on our X5 – 5 watt chipset LED Grow Light… This thing is producing wonderful results in vegetation! Between the White Widow mother and the 3 Bubblelicious clones, they all have exhibited a boost in new growth and are really beginning to fill in.
All 3 Bubblelicious are now in 3 gallon pots, none showed any signs of transplant shock or stress, growth has been seamless. The Widow though has really exploded, it may be due to being a mother plant and not having been transplanted, but I have noted, some plants/strains take better to certain lights.
I think I mentioned in a previous post that when we switch to 12/12 (bloom), one of the Bubblelicious will be moved out and bloomed under different lighting, sort of as a control plant.
Also, the need to prune/thin the White Widow, or taking a few more cuttings may become necessity, though I might wait until early bloom to assess bud development on the lower branches, I’ve a feeling the light penetration of the X5 LED grow light will step quantity on the harvest… but now I’m just getting way ahead of things…
I may start 12/12 as early as this week, the phenotype of both strains tent to stretch a good amount. Not as much as Jock Horror (Jack Herer), but enough to quickly over grow the area if I’m not paying attention.
Be well everyone!
