"My lights never go below 100%
I started my plants under 2 TS1000 at 100% 32inches above them in a 2ftx2ftx4ft. I let them grow into the light and then raise the light and keep it at 20 inches from the top of the canopy.

That's running LED only.

Now I run LED and CMH together in a 4x4x6.5 and keep the lights at the top as high as they can go at 100%. I also do a lot of training and take cuttings for clones.

Also you should know I don't mind paying for the wasted electricity. I know I'm most likely providing to much light for a 4x4x6.5 with 800watts of mixed lighting. But the results will show."

Thx for the tips ,currently growing green kush outside(first grow) but I just bought a 24' x 24' x 56' for the winter season and I've got 1 100w light right now...2 ts 1000s seems like overkill for a small tent lol...definitely need sunglasses hehe...happy growing:sunglasses:

@ffgrove,
Yeah 2 TS1000 in a 2x2x4 is a little over powered but the more light intensity you provide the bigger and denser the final product will be. I always go overboard on lights lol. I've seen people grow some pretty surprising plants with only 100w of power. As long as there full spectrum!

Thanks for the LST advice dude, I am ce tre planting now but my plants arent too tall so getting some leafs bunching up at one edge of the pot at the moment, should he fine after stretch but probably not got best efficiency out of canopy, I'll try off centre next time and see how it goes!

Thanks for the help I did start off using great white and now I switch to recharge but I had no idea that the plant food was not for cannabis because as far as I know the coast of Maine Stonington blend was designed for cannabis but maybe that's wrong too I will a very expensive plant food to my wife for the cucumbers and what not so let me know what I should be ordering for nutrients. DR.NO just started week 5 and has started flowering stage STUBBY is a week behind.also let me know if you need any more information on what I'm using if it helps you figure out what nutrients I need

@Lazydaze428,
I'm sorry I just seen this! Stonington is actually very good soil for Cannabis! The only problem is its considered hot soil ( lots of nutrients for young plants) so some plants that are heavy feeders will take to it fine. Some strains are light feeders so it can burn them or throw them into lockout. I only said use different soil to us as a starter, I'm sorry I should of made the more clear!!! I think you'll be fine as growing is a learning experience. Record all the information on each strain you grow and you'll know what you can and cannot do with each strain.

Try mixing your Stonington with another organic soil, 50/50% it shouldn't be so hot and you should be able start anything in it.

Remember to do pure watering once in awhile to break down any salts if you add bottled nutrients.

@Tarantino,
I'm sorry! I don't get any notifications when people comment on my profile. I just seen this! I actually heard really good things from a lot of growers about Viparspectra, I just haven't used them myself.

Hi been back this morning the bottle I made of just 3 parts ph had gone to 4.0 so it had gone up but not enough Iv switched back to my canna feed and adjusting it 6.0 not got ec pen just relied on ph been around 6.2 temp has dropped to 30 in growing space so hopefully that and the feed been ph6.0 will help thank you for the advice :pray::pray::pray:

@Dean1,
Your very welcome! I would have done the same thing. Seems like that set of nutrients is off for some reason. I don't use EC, I use a pH meter and a ppm meter. I'd really appreciate it if you go into your questions and vote for my answer! Thanks and if you need anything feel free to message me

@Dean1,
Hey I'm so sorry! I just seen this. Feel free to message me directly if you need help or have questions! Start by adding a lower dose of the base pH nutrients. Test the pH before adding anything else and see what to goes.
