Ok first of I want to say that I am not putting LED lights down, i know they can produce buds that look like they have been grown with a HID as some growers have shown on this site( StraightOuttaWeed & Moody ).
Ok so that aside, I purchased one of the cheap, 'made in china' led grow panels of eBay. There is a lot of talk to weather they actually produce any bud at all, this is what I'm going to experiment with.
So I have the LED grow panel, Mine was £35 or around $55 :
225 LED GROW LIGHT PANEL ALL RED HYDROPONIC 15W on eBay (end time 02-Jun-10 19:27:04 BST)
It consists of 225 red 1W diodes, 650nm. Most of these panels have 630nm but i got the higher 650nm for hopefully a little bit of bud !.
The strain is an unknown bagseed although a friend has grown it before and it produces lots of bud, its a hardy, disease resistant sativa. He got around an oz of one plant using around 60 W of Cool white cfls in a very small pot in a closet. I chose this strain because it can cope with such poor conditions, i.e high heat temps and cool as well as being rootbound it still grows !
The plant has been vegging for around a month and i will put her straight into flower with the LED's.
I'm using a cardboard box to put the plant in with the panel stuck to the top, I cut a window in the side so i can fiddle about and take pics easily.
Thats about it, lets see if she produces anything !
