    36 degrees ... under different light stages ... any recommendations ? I am leaning to 12 hours grow panel with an overlap of 8 hours of the extra LED spots.

    Only the grow lights ..

    All the lights

    Any clues ?

    Found these at an LFS, did an in shop acid test with pool acid naked ... no bubbles. It is very heavy and remind me of red jasper.

    Any clue what it is .... think it will be perfect for buce planting.

    36 degrees sees cucumber for the first time with the BN's loving it ... hmm source of SA, wonder if others find the feeding cucumber reduces algae.

    Not sure about what the LUX means under the grow lights - still it is a measure of something.
