60Jalapeno seedlings popped up a week or so ago and now the leaves are curling up and they have a slight brown/yellow color. Anyone know what could cause this? I thought it was light or temp. I've had them under a small led bulb, around 65F is the coldest it has been. I'm new to peppers and this was just an experiment. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I'm looking to pick up a new light and wanted to know which would be a better choice, the mars hydro 600w, or the mars hydro II 400w.

600w is cheaper but the reviews of it mostly say to go for for newer mars hydro II 400w. Is 400w with the better quality of the hydro II better than a 600w older model? I know nothing of lights.

I would say that both of the lights are going to be around the same intensity. The 400w I believe can get away with lower power consumption because of reflectors being used. This means it would save you just a bit more money in the long run. I've used their old 300w on a single plant and had a pretty decent harvest, around 4oz plus trimmings out of a small 14'' w X 14'' h white widow.

Low amount of light early on will bring out low potency phenotypes. If your plant isn't covered in trichomes in veg, it's not getting enough light.

Hi guys.
I've been trying to learn more about the indoor growing and I've some question about the whole light led watts stuf.

I assumed the LED is more efficient than other types of light per watt and if I calculated it right you would need about 100 watt of led for 2-2.5 square feet.
to be specific I am thinking of a box with 45cm(17,7inch) by 55cm(21.6inch) which should be 2.6 square feet.
does this sound like enough for one plant?
cause as of right now, I think the light with that setup while using led will cost me about 20$ not counting fixtures and wires, but their cost is negligeble so I don't take it into acount.

Also is that enough space for one plant? High can be as high as 2m (more than 6'0) so I assume this is not the issue either.

So I did a really dumb thing, lets say I panicked.

Dutch prob A+B, I get why its sold separate.

I mixed in 2ml of B into the what I had left of A, I was too hasty and didnt check the bottle when I returned what I didnt need to it. The panic reaction was to mix up some A+B so I wouldnt contaminate what I had left. )I know, stupid right(.
I currently have 80ml of pre mixed A+B and obv its started crystalising and reacting instantly.

Its sat in the fridge. It is all I have left for the next 15 days and is enough to give me like 3 feeds, is it gonna last that long or should I just throw it and try and maybe start bloom nutes a week early?

Your box is big enough for the light to be 'most' efficient BUT you need air and space for Respiration and Movement (MRS NERG) I mean the plant will grow but its gonna struggle essentially breathing its own farts so keep that in mind.

I checked and apparently it's algae. It could get into the roots and slow down the growth, so it's time to transplant.

I noticed the other day when i was training some of the younger plants that when i bent their stems over, a couple of the plants stayed bent over before i even tied them down. im a bit concerned considering I have clones I just rooted and a couple of seedlings.

Silica would remedy or at east keep them at bay?

They are attracted to yellow
you can get specific yellow glue stickers or anything yellow you coat with cooking oil so they get stuck and die.

Also attracted to apple cider vinegar. Use some 3% hydrogen peroxide in water (quarter to tenth strength) to kill their spawn in the soil. Then don't let the soil stay so wet.

I can't bring myself to agree totally with this graph, UVB in the 375-395nm range will help the plant to produce more resins as a defense mechanism against getting sunburned. This has been shown by using UVB reptile lights in bloom, and they spike in the blue range instead of the red which otherwise shouldn't help at all in bloom.

COBs are easy to cool because all you have to do is use thermal glue to attach them to just about any size CPU heat sink, then affix the proper 90mm fan that goes onto that cooler. The sky is the limit, you can even water cool them if you want to push a 100-150W rated COB to 175-200W. Otherwise heat buildup is what kills them quickest.

Isn't UVB shorter wavelengths than 375-395nm? That is UVA to my knowledge. And AFIK no other light besides specialized florescent bulbs provide it, so if you want the benefit you'd have to supplement it either way.

275-320, you're right. They claim to make LEDs that can reach that wavelength but they're around 10x as expensive and last I checked they were a lot weaker in intensity.
