grow weed using only 24watts
I've tried with the compact flouros in a son-T spectrum with extra blue and they produce really nice results. lots of crystals/glands but you don't get anywhere near the same density to the flowers as with a standard HPS - for heat issues also cool tubes work great if it's just a few lamps in a growroom

grow weed using only 24watts
i remember seeing this on overgrow years ago, the idea spawned from there i think.

i dont think the wattage makes that much difference, its the light spectrums and the lumens that it gives off, lumens being the light the plant actually uses.

In the 1970s the most efficient method was fluorescent lighting. It worked really well. Nobody even considered HPS because of the huge waste of power and the intense heat created.

We would just line a closet with foil, put in a few fluorescent lights and let 'em grow. Since the bulbs produce very little heat, you can get them very close to the plants.

grow weed using only 24watts
Quote:250 watts a plant is more like it. I averaged 3 oz a plant when sticking strickly to this rule. Yes weed will grow under 1 watt, it'll grow by candle light. It's called "weed" for a reason. Also seeds are a waste of time as well. One female plant under at least 250 watts will give you 36+ female clones. People that haven't grown themselves multiple times, really have misguided and common misconceptions about growing weed. Growing is an investment. The less you put in the less you get out. AS for different kinds of light.... The spectrum produced by differrent kinds severly effects the plants ability to bud etc. Agrosun bulbs are the best and closest to sunlight. Flourescent are good for foliage not buds.


I totally agree. Flouro's are good for vegging and keeping mothers alive, but thats about it - you will not got a good harvest. I prefer a 250W ecolite to start, then transplant into HPS. Heat isnt an issue with extraction/ventilation....and carbon filters are a must.
In my experience with HPS, I aim for 1g/w, I can get close to it - took me 2 years to figure it out. Light density is very important though, gives nice strong firm buds - and more resin.
About 1 1/2 oz per plant is the norm, depending on the strain that is and how many you are growing. Also there is a difference in yield/quality between soil and hydro. Both ways have their merits, not getting into THAT discussion. There's more suitable forums out there for that.
As for LED tech, I shall wait and see.....I need some convincing.

Its great fun actually! A nice little hobby. The science behind it is fascinating, and a wondeful little plant it is too!

grow weed using only 24watts
2 x 600 Watts over 36 plants, on 1.4 m2. white reflector on all sides. all bio , soil. +- 60 / 70 grams yeild a plant.
(someone mentioned "at least an ounce a plant", nah... i dont think so... at least not on average )
there are only very few folks i know that have those yeilds a plant and usually the quality suffers.
imho it would be better to have twice as many plants instead of a few more humongous ones.
also ;you guys seem to forget a few important things ; mainly airflow and heat.
i've seen a lot of setups , and the best yeilds have a lot to do with balancing out (lamp)heat and airflow.

An ounce is 28grams no?

Using cooltubes over the bulbs of the lamps with a fan at the end of the pipe sucks out most of the heat from a space, even from 600watters -

also putting a few tea lights on the top of the reflectors will provide a good source of co2 - but make sure they DON'T fall off. eek!!

the compact flouros in a son -T spectrum with extra blue provide a good all round lamp for someone who doesn't want to invest a shit load of cash and only wants to grow for personal.

I used rotating tower fans often - they ate cheap and give a good breeze - with the cool tubes sucking the hot air off from around the lamps all is need is a little hole in the space and fresh air will be drawn in through convection.

I'm not going to say what yields per plant I have had as I don't want to show off:rolleyes::freaked:-_-B):lol:find a nice indica dominant indica/sativa strain and you're laughing. I liked to grow neville's haze sometimes too though. blah blah

I'm with harflimon as to using clones from a nice mother plant - though if you leave a good plant flowering too long and add a bit of prime pollen you will get a batch of S1's - not F1's - which are going to ALL be female ( 99.9%) no fucking about with gibberelic acid etc. anyhows..

peace

1 ounce = 28.34 grams

900 ounces = 25514.5 grams :freaked:

"actual' - bad choice of wording..

what i'm talking about is that , even when we (my friends) use the english equivalent of "ons" and "pond" (Dutch)
; Ounce / Pound ; we mean 100 grams and 500 grams respectivly .
Dutch metric ounce = 100 gr.
what originally used to weigh 28.34 grams that was so important to make it into a unit of weight ?
can anyone explain the logic of an ounce being 28.34 grams ? what was the standard based on ?
why the hell does a pound split into 16 ounces ?
If i where to ask for the distance to the nearest city
and you'ld tell me in Ell or Cubits, that would make about as much sense to me.
anyways ,..i prefer round numbers. :)

peace'

28.34 grams = 1 avoirdupois ounce

"In the English-speaking world, 16th – 20th century, a unit of mass, = 1/16 avoirdupois pound, 28.3495 grams. The United States is now the only nation that continues to use this unit." (http://www.sizes.com/units/ounce_avoirdupois.htm)
