    Just hung my t5's last night. I'm running just two 2 footers over one plant. How long are your lights and the 10" is as close as you can get? I'm a little closer than that with my 2 footers

      So I am using a 400w HID as the main source. My T5’s are 2 ft long and supplement red light during early - mid flower... and I replace the red bulbs with 2 ft UV bulbs for the last few weeks of flower. The agro Max UV bulbs need to be 10” from the canopy (according to the manufacturer’s recommendation). This is for UV light only. For the red bulbs, they need to be 6” from the canopy (according to the manufacturer’s recommendations). If these were the regular standard t5 bulbs, then I would keep them a few inches from the canopy. Hope that answers your question.

      Here are some close ups at lights out. The UV lights are really making them pop. No issues with burning. Plenty of goo on these buds. The tops are half milky white now. Should be seeing the first ambers in the next few weeks. That’s when I like to harvest her.

        Looking good Toker. Had to unplug my UV's Light burned the plant I had them over. That was with only 2 12hr light cycles. 15 mins on every hour was waaaay to much. I'll try them again in the future. But I think I'll cut the cycle down to 15mins every 4 hours. Rest of the grow looking good harvest next wknd

        Might be that the UV was too close to the plants. I had to tie mine back to maintain the manufacturer’s recommendation on distance from canopy.

      Approx. 1 week until harvest. The garden temps are 66-72 and RH 40-50% for the last week here. The purple is really coming out now.

      Today is the day. She has been in darkness for about 36 hours now. I typically go for 48 hours, but this is what works with my schedule this grow.
      Here are some final Picts of the buds still attached to the roots. I got lots of work ahead of me, so my next post will be an early smoke report (short cure) plus final yeild. Then I will follow up with a long cure smoke report. Let’s see if the UV turned up the final product. 😤

        Roughly 8 ozs of untrimmed buds. The yields were a bit on the low side. I chalk it up to a combination of the UV light plus the faulty mh I had durring veg.
        Not a bad run.... I smoked a bowl of bottom buds (dried with no cure). The quality was extremely potent. And the smoke was not harsh at all. Can’t wait to cure these buds for a bit. If it gets better than it is currently (currently meaning with no cure)...it will surpass the quality of every bud I have ever grown from this phenotype since I started growing her over a year ago.
        I will be keeping the UV lights in my set up...plus I will be adding UV to my 4ft x 4ft tent as well.

          Looks good @Toker1
          Thank you for sharing your grow and experience with the UV. Quality versus quantity always wins my vote.

          Thanks Mr.furley! I agree. I only grow for myself, and I only smoke what I grow. Quality is most important to myself as well.
