Default Winter Lighting..

I am using a number of 4' fixtures.. 2 T-12's w/ 5k bulbs and after having my plants in there for 2 weeks.. :^)

I put these guys up on the 9th of Nov.



Most noticeable difference is the PK in the next 2 pics.. over a 2 weeks period. The rest are getting over the shock of the trip from Ark.





I'm going end up moving the PK front (R) into the Big Banana room by the end of Winter..
To follow T-5 (2) and T-8 grow room and results as they present themselves. :^)

Those are good temps, mine are 45 and lower not too good for the garage thing.
Do you dose the Banana Fuel at full summer strength or do you give them a diluted winter maintenance dose. Just curious

Depending on your lighting setup Reflective Mylar may help you out..

Notice the best advice is in the last sentence.. :^)
