          bboyfromwayback Same! and then for flower I have 2 ES300v3! My girls are loving the 180's (even though I don't have a comparison lol)! My first grow so I've been cautious, slowly turning them up, but I'm currently at an 8 @ 48" and they are 18 days from seed...

          I don’t go above 50% for veg. Once I flip to 12/12 I start turning up the power a little every other day if the plants look good. When I get to 100% I keep lights at least 24” above canopy and if I can’t raise the light I turn the power down. These lights are sweet but powerful

        Self made DIY lights.
        There are 3 things you must check everyday when growing in hydro:
        1) Water level (How much h2o is she drinking in 24hrs)
        2) pH level (change over 24hrs)
        3) ppm/EC level (How much food is she eating in 24hrs)

          VIDEOS
          Lots of interesting information in these tests. Some say the SF4000 is just two SF2000 put together but that second video shows otherwise.

              Hopefully this will help new growers with choices. But cost is the primary factors.
