This might be of interest :idea:

Most microorganisms have an optimum pH range for survival and function (see table 2).
Table 2: Maximum, minimum, and optimum pH values for microbial groups. (adapted from Smith and Doran 1996)
Microorganisms Range Optimum
Bacteria RANGE 5 - 9 OPTIMUM 7
Actinomycetes RANGE 6.5 - 9.5 OPTIMUM 8
Fungi RANGE 2 - 7 OPTIMUM 5
Blue green bacteria RANGE 6 - 9 OPTIMUM > 7
Protozoa RANGE 5 - 8 OPTIMUM > 7

@Sunshine @Uncle_Al tomorrow I will be switching from a 300w 132 actual to a 600-1000 watt adjustable led. I dunno the actual draw just yet but it's from my landlord who saved his top of the line insanely expensive gear so he can grow again in a few years when he's off probation. He really is a terrific fellow :)

That tool is prohibitively expensive for the average user. Part of my work related tool kit. I have a buttload of cool electronics
I saw your post that said you are an electrician for your day job. It probably makes growing that much easier. I've been shocked by too many things to feel overly comfortable messing with wires. It's almost a phobia at this point. The gadgets are a nice perk though :rolleyes:

Nice score @FerretWrangler :party::party: Do you know what the actual wattage is at full power? or what model it is? Also does it say if it's 3w or 5w diodes.
That amount of light should kick out some serious buds :)
