Thanks @Jcloud777

So cob lights have a ballast eh? And what brand are you using atm ? Yah i heard they are great on hydro and give off more Lumens to boot.
This is a cheap Amazon cob. I threw two in a small tent. It was 30$, but extremely bright. Versus my old led 240w blackstar. It doesn't need a cooling fan. It got ic heat dissipation it just gots a heat sink. I love this thing. Fully covered with 5 year warranty! The only reason I bought it. It's a Chinese led company pretty cool people. Just don't have any idea about light coverage or distance sweet spots

Plants are looking happy my friend ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒฟ Do you know many watts the cob is and the lumen output? ๐Ÿ’ก
Yeah it's 50w cobs true watts is advertised. This LED company is cool bro. They don't false advertise false watt claims. Im not sure about lumens. I had to gut my T5 grow light to mount my LED grow lights on. Because I couldn't hang them straight it was going crooked alot. Didn't want to do it but needed a frame turned out great though

Does it look like my plants getting led burn?
In my opinion probably not, just keep an eye on them and continue to monitor. With 100 real watts, it should in theory be quite hard to light burn them unless they're very close or there's something unusual about the light๐Ÿ’ก
Will tying my plants down. Stop the buds from forming all the way
If these are autos it may be best to let them grow naturally with as little interference as possible๐ŸŒฒ๐Ÿ‘
And yes tying them down will result in lots of smaller colas๐Ÿฟ
Good growing and thanks for sharing! I'm sure they're going to love it under the new lights ๐ŸŒž

@18 " Is my 300 Watt LED, Probably 150 true watts lol., At that height there is no heat issue but read below for a trick i found.

All you need to do is hold your hand just above your tallest plant part, does it burn ? Raise the LED, Is it cold, either okay to to far up.

And yes as @Sunshine said, if you research LST for Auto flowers, they will show you how to to the bend Sunshine is talking about.

I feel so bad my poor baby crystal dwarf auto the biggest plant. I woke up this morning first thing on my mind. Was I need to make sure to water my plant at lunchtime. It completely slipped my mind for some reason. It just barely started to wilt just a tad. But I haven't missed any waterings til now. An I feel sad it kind of bothers me. Because I love my plant. Hopefully tomorrow it will perk back up to normal. Im not growing for yield anyway just seeds. I can definitely start to see a difference in preflowering growth. I hit it with 1 ml of big bloom to 10 ounces of water. An fed that. 2 or 3 days back. I hit them with Dr. Earth starter fertilizer 1 ml. to 10 ounces. I know fox farms ocean forest easily gives plants leaf tip burns. Until 6 weeks it will have eaten up nutes in soil. An autos are more sensitive to nutes, but haven't saw any over feeding burns. Temps. are stable 73F-75F . I love it hope this big bloom doesn't cause burns. The directions said it could be used on seedlings.

I like the natural light pics, they look great @Jcloud777 thanks for sharing ๐ŸŒž
It was beautiful day that day. My window gets that south sun. Np buddy dude if you ever try growing a dwarf autoflower. They will blow your mind. How fast they form bud development. It's fast I can notice a difference each day. I would definitely recommend it to the eager new growers. It yields low vs photoperiods. But you can SOG if you git some space. An have a quick harvest, every 3 months. I hope the others show sex soon. Then I'll know for certain there autoflowering. Under 17 hours of light. An if they continue to keep on flowering. I know it's not semi autoflower. Fingers crossed I want some fully automatic seeds to play with. Im going to buy the dwarf seeds I couldn't grow over again. In the future got 6 dwarf varieties to chuck with or handpollinate next round. My tent has light leaks, so I would hate to end up with a photo.

Got my new grow lights in today. My friend really hooked it up. He said if I want some more free lights just let him know he's the coolest.

I also found another grow tent. I thought I took to the dump. An the zipper was broken I fixed it. I can't afford to run another tent, but maybe in the future. Plus I have no idea how I'd set up ventilation. The stink from my plants is getting powerful
