I think I did even better than that. I was honestly talking to our resident Master Builder about building me a couple of lights when I stumbled across this listing.... Looks like somebody is just buying kits and puttin em together....but for me and my old dogness..i didn't wanna fuck with a build....and when Jesse said he thought it was a killer deal...I just hit the "Buy it Now" for 2 of 'em....


Gotta say.....I'm fuckin' stoked.

Wtf!!! That ridiculously cheap! I would've bought that over another qb 288 triple xl! Ahaha good fuckin find just sent that link to my pops hes in the process of upgrading from Vipar par600 and I think two 900s. I converted him to led but we were mislead by blurples after he's seen the result of my hlg he's a fan. Thank you for that stiicky...I may even buy one now just to have...picking up shifts at work I guess now.😈

Fer a hundred bones or so I couldn't see fuckin with a kit/etc. Everybody has to make a dollar here/there. Seemed incredibly fair to this old dog. Glad the link may help yer dad. The blurples was one reason I never really paid attention to LED's. Those plant pics always make me cringe....

Hope shit is good on yer side of things....

beyond fair I'm impressed...shit is going real good stiicky just need to buckle down and handle my shit and I'll continue to be good.
My pops found these off that...I may get one of these, you know for the future...🤩🤪😈
 
That’s an insane deal that you found. Around $200 cheaper than their -25% price. You’ll have a fun winter playing with those indoors. Not sure if you have a small dehumidifier laying around (know you’ve been doing this for years-so you probably have 3) but you will want it in the tent with those until your plants get larger.

I have their older 600 and have done only one flower cycle with them. For the last 9 months it’s sat dimmed down to 100 just slow vegging outdoor garden plants etc.

I'm pretty stoked. Haven't felt this way about the indoor grow for years.

It's damn dry here most of the time. I guess I'll just have to wait and see if humidity is an issue. Usually around here if you keep airflow moving through the space you won't see/have a problem. Thanks for mentioning it though. And FWIW...I only have one de-huey...in my dome GH. Never used one (or A/C) in any grow in 30+ years. We're lucky that way here. (IMO) Winter is awesome stuff and it's when I've had my best grows over the years....without a doubt.

Yer firing up now that the "party" is over though...riight? Gonna rock that 600?"

The train I've been riding for 30 years was OK....sure can't argue with the results over time......but the thought of all of my old equipment not running as efficiently as it did as new issue kinda put me over the top. I already feel a bit guilty using electricity again to grow weed when the Sun does as good or better job.... but that's summer-only shit here...and winter is damn long...so here we go. Gotta burn up some of these seeds somehow/someway....LOL. Hopefully these lights will be everything everyone says they are...LOL.... we will see.

I will likely miss the heat though. HPS is like free heat...LOL.... a side benefit of growin'. With these lights i suspect I'll be stuffin the woodstove in the garage nightly...just to keep things warm. Never had to do that before...... again...we will see. Gonna be a bit of a learning curve, I suspect....

Ha ha that’s what happens when I smoke that LVTK...I meant a small humidifier lol. Many thanks again..

You won’t need the dehumidifier unless you decide not to train them and have monster colas late in flower. I didn’t struggle with high humidity here in the winter til late flower. We have similar dry air...it’s as low as 10-15%

Oh yeah the tent/closet is occupied right now with around 20-25 clone/moms and 80-90 seedlings. Doing some small scale pheno hunts. Bought so many seeds now I’m just popping them.

Longterm goal is finding 60-80 keepers to have in rotation.

I'm hittin the Fuzzy rosin in the bong so i didn't even catch that...LOL..... um...whatever...LOFL.

60-80? Holy flyin fuck. I could do that but then I'd just be bitchin' more than I already do about not having a market. :rolleyes: Pisses me off...now that i have the space to play like that...that there's absolutely no reason to go that big anymore. I'm so high trying to smoke all of this already...LOL.....even with the shares I'm still buried.

Could be worse though...for sure. Just wish I coulda been this far ahead years ago when the phone was ringing off the wall... cha ching cha ching...

Just gotta remember I ain't goin to jail and be happy with that..... but fuck me..... dammit.... talk about "time for change"......

I'm guessing I'll be happy I put up that 4 cords of firewood and stacked a bunch by the garage. Even so...living in the cold you know how hard it can be to maintain heat. I insulated the floor and am planning on draping a moving quilt/blanket over the end closest to the garage door. I refuse to run heaters though. Just gonna have to make it all jive.

I hear ya about the variety. I'll be running a dozen or so different things in here this go...for better or worse. Hopefully the LED with make dealing with differing plant heights a bit easier....we will see. Gonna pop em off and flip em fast.....and see where it all goes. Been a long time since I thought "1 per sq ft"....but I'm thinking that's where I'm gonna go this go around. Like you..I have far too many seeds to only pop a few...LOL.

Hopefully the lack of hps heat will help on the overall watering needs. Haven't grown in one gallon pots full term since the old days. In fact...back then...I used cut off gallon milk jugs cus I was too paranoid to buy/source 100+ nursery containers.

Cha..cha...cha...cha....changes......look out you rock n rollers....

Got a box today. I guess box #2 got sidetracked until Monday. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for it. Fuckin' FedEx.....SUCKS. Fuckers drop shit @ my gate all the time......and unless I'm checking my email I have no idea if something got delivered. Wasn't supposed to be here til Wednesday. Just happened to look towards the road and thought I saw a plastic bag blowing in the wind. Yup. The light....

Time will tell. Looks like a toy. This shit be expensive for what ya get and what it musta cost for the Chinese to slap together. Seems pretty bright but not overly so. Gonna be a different ball game. We will see.

Not ditchin the old school shit just yet...... :ROFLMAO:

That shit would've been goneee in my neighborhood. I hope its all legit. I really hope you like it. Especially since you dont seem overly thrilled by it. It should be bright af. Then again I haven't been around hid in years and the last thing I had was blurps anything is bright compared to blurps. Lmao. If you don't like it you can always lean it against a wall and use it for side lighting lol. I was gonna do that with hlgs sabers but now I feel confident I can do it myself. Gonna build my own supplement bar uva, uvb, ir and some more far reds.
