9 days since flip sure bugs are eradicated. I changed the 600hps for a 400 was getting a little hot



bought a kingbo 1000 led light I think its 250 output. its hanging from a piece of wood resting on a bed base and a head board is very rough and ready, just trying it out in a small space before I think about buying another led, have ordered some mylar sheeting and I have a spare extractor fan, have planted 2 seeds, bruce banner and gelato og problem is the bb grows tall and I will have to super crop lots I imagine it will fill the space

looked like aphids because of the trail they left behind, gave them 2 sprays 10 days apart with a garden fruit and veg spray not organic but says you can eat veg after spraying. second spray burned a few leaves I was dreading having to spray again,

had a busy week changing lights then changing back to where I was.

I took the parabolic shade down because of the weight plus the trouble raising and lowering then I came across a secure ceiling hook that should take the weight, I dropped the cheapo shade onto the plants luckily it dropped on a cane stopped it doing more damage but it still broke a couple of tops, alls well that ends well got the 600hps up and running just hope plants don’t hermie
