    Red face New Wave T5 Grow...IM NOW A BELIEVER !!

    Hello there fellow growers. I have been growing for about 4yrs now using 1 400w HPS and 1 400w MH with a conversion bulb, 800 watts of growing power.A friend of mine recently invested in the HO T5 system 2ft x 4ft 400w total power. I must admit that I was really doubtful about using this new technology of marijuana growing. After seing his results iin three different crops I decided to go out and get one for myself. Since I have started my new crop with this new light I have nothing but great things to say about this light. I can say with ease that this is the best grow I have had yet...The low heat emition is a great big plus for this product. I never thought that a fluoro light would ever give me such nice plants. I have included some pics of the babies that i have on board...two weeks old !! Let me know what you think!

    I back T5's all the way. I am about to invest in a set up for a SOG grow. I will still keep the 1K set up as well, but I think the T5 systems are being slept on.

    Thank you all for your possitive vibes...These picks were taken two days before i put them into budding...they have been in buddint for 4 days now and looking real healthy!! I will make sure to post some more pics in the evening.

    There basically is NO heat issues with this lamp. For example when i was running my HPS and MH i had to keep the lights at a steady 18" from my plants if not imediate burnt tips...Just by installing this new T5 I save 15" of grow space...which is always good in a closet grow!! I try and keep the plants at about 3" from the light but if they for some reason sneak past me and grow into the light theres really no huge damage done...only minor burns unlike the third degree burns that your regular HPS or MH would cause.
    I just use a standing fan to move and cool my plants...more to move stale air than cool i would say...But like i would say before i bought my light "Seing is Believing" I am gonna post my progress so that my fellow growers can see the results !!

    Dude was the T5 HO light rig a custom build or did you buy it complete ?
    I`m interested in the T5 method as i used to have marine fish and know how exellent T5`s can be and last forever, well almost.

    I'm at work right now so I cant post any pics...as soon as i get home I will make sure to update with some pics. I bought the T5 online...I think I paid like $450 for it!! Worth every penny!! I forgot to mention that they sent me a free sample of Fluorocious Plus with my order....that stuff is on hit!! A little stinky but works miracles!! Really helps tro drop roots and swell plants!

    I use the GH Flourolicias Grow and Bloom as addatives in my grows and the plants seem to love it. Can you post a link from where you got the lights. Like I said I want to do a T5 set up pretty soon.

    I see these units are 120volts only, being in the UK these are not compatible, but i will say for what they are the they`re very over priced, but do look the part.

    Well it all depends how you wanna look at over priced....if you think that you can get 8-16 ozs from out under that lamp...its not that expensive at all...plus the amount of money you save in the long run with high electricity bills!!

    I use a 2ft 4 bulb T5 light in the top of my cab. this height is like 3 ft tall the Light Is only 3inches in height. Its awsome. Plus the reflectors in the T5 lights are german technology which is supposed to be really good. I have yet to flower a whole plant through but here is a pick of A sexing process Im trying, I hope to have decent results.

    the cfl raises the temps in my Cab by only 5 to 10 degress. It works well for hot summertime.

    thats the log

    Well since you put it that way i guess it must be worth a gamble, when you say 8-16oz how many plants are we talking for that kinda yield ?

    Hey tico, great grow you have here and I see this light of yours and I love it. I went to specialty-lights.com and did some looking around and I think that the Tek T5 432w is going to make priority on my next shop coming up. They are very sleek and hell you can get your own fixture adjuster, I would have to disagree and that this unit isnt overpriced ... Infact it is a reasonable price when you can flower 5-6 plants under it.

    I see a future for T5.

    I was up to twelve 40-watt tubes, and finally switched to HPS ... I miss some things about the flouros, they grow nicely ... but, I stayed with the cheap everyday tubes ... my arithmetic always told me it was much cheaper to add an extra cheap bulb or two to make up the lumen difference, than to replace those high-dollar T5s, which tend to be pretty pricey, dollar-to-lumen-wise ... just something to ponder, do the math ...

    could be something to ponder...but come on now...we are all pot conumers and we all know that the an oz is gonna run you anywhere from $200-$400...so using the cheapest oz by getting 2ozs from your lamp its paid for !! Not much to think about !! Not to mention what you save in electricity in the long run!!

    Ill definatly stick around if this is going to be your log, I really like the clean/sleek setups such as your self, thats what I go for too heh. An ounce a plant is easily achievable with this setup, did you get all your bulbs the 3000K warm?

    This is true , but dont grow to sell. Sell enough that you can live off and maybe a little here and there to friends , never hurt to have a bit of extra cash.
