1-11, ready for the harvest. Next week we will start a new test with prototypes of our first commercial 20 Watt system on a 2 by 3 feet system with 10 plants. Movies will be posted on Youtube.
19-10, about 10 days to go, Next time will be with more plants and prototypes of our first commercial 20 Watt system, please come back.....
9-10, is it nice or what?.
29-9, looking good, I think Led's can produce good results. To early to do the math about cost/yield compared to Hid.
23-9, looking good, three weeks to go
16-9, fully flowering, can't wait :-)
12-9, Thanks for all the support and feedback. The new plants are flowering, they look ok. The boards build out of 270 5mm led's aren't as good as the high power led's. They produce less light and the plants developed less leaves, they mostly gained height. Since a few days the plants are placed under the power led's and they react with massive growth and rapidly developing flowering. The lenses on the power led's are now more wide angle, so they can be placed closer to the plants for optimum coverage. Still 4 red power led's and 4 blue power led's, totally 32 watts. Sprayed with Masai against the spidermites again.
10-9, the first led-crop is ready, looks great. Next time it should be much more, still happy with the first official led-harvest :-)
31-8, the first plant has about finished flowering, it will be taken out on monday, first harvest :-) In the back the new clones can be seen, these are now 34 cm high
19-8, the first plant flowering and developing nice crystals, both new clones are set to flowering
17-8, the new clones height is over 26 cm, lights are still at 24/24. First treatment with Masai has been given. Next week the plants will be transported to the bigger box with powerled's and they will be set to flowering
8-8, the new clones height is over 17 cm, lights are on 24/24
8-8, the first plant is, despite the poison-damage, still flowering
3-8, the new clones kicked in nicely, height is over 13 cm, lights are on 24/24
28-7, the new clones have just been put under the lights, initial heigt is 10 cm, lights are on 24/24
28-7, the new system, it is build out of 5mm red and blue led's, each board has 270 Led's and takes 12 Watt.
We will still be updating the high-power led system, the coming months you can see for yourself which system works best.
28-7, plants are badly damaged due to high concentration of spidermite poison :-((
One of the plants will be removed, the other plant will be continued.
A new test with a different system and two new clones is started
24-7, height of the plants is now 48 cm, flowering, nice flowers are rapidly developing. Spidermites detected :-((
21-7, height of the plants is now 45 cm, flowering, nice flowers are rapidly developing. Next week coverage will be adjusted again; parts of the plants should get more light .
18-7, height of the plants is now 43 cm, flash made crazy colours :-), flowering, approx 4,5 weeks to go!
14-7, height of the plants is now 41 cm, the first signs of flowers can be seen, approx 5 weeks to go!
12-7, height of the plants is now 38 cm, growth is back to normal thanks to the improvement of coverage on 8-7. Smell is of flowering, but visually only the first signs of flowers can be seen
8-7, height of the plants is now 34 cm, looks like the growth is slowing down because of the flowering, 12/24.
8-7, overvieuw, lowered the plants to get a better lightcoverage, flowering, 12/24.
5-7, height of the plants is now 32 cm, flowering, 12/24.
2-7, height of the plants is now 29 cm, flowering, 12/24.
29-6, average height of the plants is now 27 cm, flowering, 12/24.
27-6, average height of the plants is now 24 cm, switched to flowering, 12/24.
26-6, rebuild support construction of the LED's, average height of the plants is now 22 cm.
24-6, average height of the plants is now an amazing 21 cm. Lights-on still at 24/24
23-6, lights raised for better coverage, average height of the plants is now 19 cm.
At 22-6-2007, 4 Red Led's were added, total powerconsumption now 32 Watts, Height of the plants is now 17 cm
19-6-2007, growing fase with just 4 Blue Led's, 4 Watt each, totally 16 Watts.
Highly experimental setup, clones planted at 14-6-2007, initial height 12 cm, lights on 24/24.
Number of clones later reduced to just 2.
