What are you talking about ? a cob spread the light very well
The time you want a reflector is to FOCUS the light on some spot

That's obviously not the kind of reflector I am posting about.

You aren't aware of better HID reflectors that do actually spread out the light?
But what am I saying even a basic gull-wing reflector spreads out the light from the "backside" of the bulb.


LEDs without any optics are basically lambertian light sources, that means they are dimmer the higher the angle from the center of illumination. You actually want a light source that does the opposite so that it becomes brighter on higher angles because the distance to the canopy is the lowest right under the light.

A bulb has 360
A cob has 120 beam angle
They are ready made for a good spread downwards

Read my post dude and look at the chart, please try to get it.
That said you're fine if you hang your cob high enough so that the angle you are actually using isn't higher than 60 degrees.

Spread isn't a problem either for me as long as you have individual collimators that do a 60-70 degree angle with the light going through them. Any higher than that and you'll have spillover of light onto the walls and any less, you have spotlights on the floor until you've raised the lights so far up that the bottom branches don't have enough power to engage in photosynthesis.

Hey all, been a long time since I've been around but hopefully you guys are as good as you were 7 years ago! Now that Growing for personal use is legal in California I'd like to start growing again.

Won't lie, it's been almost 5 years since I grew and I wasn't the main guy in my op so I did more tending to the plants then setting up the whole thing. What are some good hydro setups I can setup that aren't too pricy? Not looking to do large amounts this time, just 2 or 3 plants for the wife and I, tits in return!

>Order some pre-sterilized grain spawn bags and a spore syringe
>Inoculate the bags and let them colonize.
>When they are halfway colonized, smush up the spawn and shake it around to spread the mycelium
>When fully colonized, cut off the top of the bags, add a 1 inch casing layer of wet coir or vermiculite on top
>Loosely fold the opening of each bag over and secure it with a single piece of tape or a paperclip in the middle to let some air in, leave the bags inflated to give the mushrooms room to grow
>Move the bag to a place where it will get some light to trigger pinning, give it a misting if there's no condensation on the sides.
>??????
>Profit

This is about as simple as it gets. You don't need jars or a pressure cooker, your substrate's already sterilized and ready to go. You won't get as big of a yield as you would with using a monotub, but you don't have to go through the trouble of getting a tote, sanitizing it, drilling holes in it, lining it with plastic, and all that. And by having a bunch of small bags instead of one big monotub, you won't have all your eggs in one basket and a contamination won't be a massive loss.

I was hoping to get 4 oz a plant but we had ventilation problems and then a few more nute problems along the way, too many cooks n all that.

Luckily these guys made it through. As you can see theyve shed a lot of leaves.
They are maturing but we know they may need upto another 4 weeks. This is a strain we grow very often from a very established mother.

Doesnt look like 4 though, what do you guys reckon? 2, 2 and a half? Think we can get 3 in another month?

Pic is large.

if you have the thing tuned in why are you coming so why are you asking questions about it?

that looks like about a quarter ounce or two per plant

>Think we can get 3 in another month?
yeah, maybe you can squeeze that third quarter ounce out, who the fuck am i supposed to know? these are clones of your very established mother, so you should know pretty much everything thats gonna happen, but you didn't even tell use a strain name & expect us to tell you whats up?

That guys right though, OP didn't even state what kind of light he is using so nobody is going to be able to give any kind of useful estimate.

And besides that, just grow it and see how much it yields, it's not like a prediction will have any influence on how much it will eventually yield.

Guys I odnt know what the fuck is going on, I have two plants like this that have been 'germinating' for a month. Thyre about 6 inches high and look like pic related. Ive shot them with a really weak amount of nutes this week but theyre just doing nothing.
Ive moved them from a room with a light about 4 feet away to a a room with a cfl about 4 inch away and still no real progress.
They germinated really quick and have just stopped at this from about 2 weeks, should I put them in a dome?
something is very wrong.

that coco coir wont help either, add some perlite or something similar to it to create more space for the roots to manoeuvre and grow.
Seedlings find it harder to get going in coco, it gets very compacted, has very little nutrient value and doesnt 'hold' water as well on its own.

no it doesnt need to be fully white, the mycelium keeps growing but slows down to fruit during its lifecycle. if youve introduced fresh air and light then small white dots should be forming soon (cant tell from pic) from the evaporation of water. These pins are you future mushrooms. Monotubs are set and forget so just wait for now
