    I was wondering if there was any compromise in the density of the flowers when using LED

    Has anyone else tried the household-type LED bulbs? I've gotten excellent vegetative growth with the 100-watt equivalent/5000 K bulbs on both photoperiod and autoflower plants. Possibly a more energy-efficient alternative to CFLs.

    I have been using leds for a few years now. I started out using vho floro that were from my coral tanks I had, started out with 440watts and end with 800watts, I would end up with 3-4ozs. per plant in my little 15 sqft room per month. had a lot of issues with heat so when I decided to try something else I new I couldn't use hid. Since I couldn't bring myself to spend 1-2k on lights, I bought a few viparspectra300"s and a few roleandro new version 300"s both with 5 watt leds. what I found is you need to watch your height, if they are to close the nods are way to tight so start with 2ft distance from the tops till flower, then let them grow up to the lights. I wish I wasn't having issues with picture transfers from my phone. last summer I grew outside and inside to compare, first of all the leds needed an extra week in flower, second I fim all my plants so they have many primary tops. 1 plant was cloned and grew inside and outside {U.K. cheese}, at harvest I picked 1 top from each, both were a little over 20 inches long and both were apx 2 inches thick. the branch from outside had broken up buds on the branch, the led branch was solid all the way down and each bud was more firm than the outside plant. But, 1 plant gives you 4ozs., and the other gives you over 4lbs. I hope this is helpful to everyone.20171016_130153.jpg
