    RM3's Tanning Booth


    0 Not allowed!
    New to the forum, one of my pet peeves is light and how it is often abused. I do not use the popular lighting setups, I have never even considered using/owning an HPS bulb.

    I only grow for personal use, so do not need very much and I like to breed so I spend most of my time doing that with each grow.

    My current setup is an 18 bulb 1000 watt T5 HO that uses 3 6 bulb fixtures in an arc that I call the Tanning Booth. The bulbs are GE 54 watt HO 4100K they have peaks in the red & blue right where plants want em with a smaller green peak. I keep em at least 2 feet above the canopy (when I can LOL)

    Here are some pics

    Looking at that last pic yes you can see 2 boys and 2 phenos of my new strain Wonderland on the left one is a Sat pheno that took after her mom (Lil Bush) and the other is an indica pheno that took after her dad (Namaste). On the right is my new Colorado Thunderfuck. I named it that because like the Alaskan Thunderfuck it goes all amber very early.

    Here is the CTF bud in week 8 of flower

    This is a flash photo that shows how the reflectors parse the photons of light in my garden. The tall lanky Sat in the foreground is my Lil Bush

    Since I am sharing pics of my strains I should also let you know that they are not available in any seed banks. I do not sell em, rather I give em away to folks that visit. I get a lot of visitors LOL Folks have come from all over Colorado and from 6 different States (so far) I have a couple coming from Australia planned for this summer

    Wow, nice job, looks like you'll have enough to get you through to the next harvest. CFL's seem to be working nicely, any idea how they compare with energy usage. Isn't 1000 watts a 1000 watts, I dunno. How much heat do they generate, I know cfl's are fairly cool, but that's a lot of bulbs, like a tanning booth, LOL.

    Cheers

    I give most of it away as I grow way more than I can smoke LOL

    and yes 1000 watts is 1000 watts, cost 100 a month to run my garden

    My canopy runs 90~92 degrees and my ambient runs 78~82 degrees
    I'm diggin' my way... I'm diggin' my way to somethin'... I'm diggin' my way to somethin' better...
    I'm sowing the seeds... I'm sowing the seeds I've taken... I'm sowing the seeds I take for granted...
