Carlos Sativa Grows More Trichomes
She is looking crazy good and with only 500W! I usually stack multiple HID’s to get bud like this.
This Plasma does have a smaller footprint compared to the 500, but inside that optimal 3’X3′ footprint it’s nothing but vigor and great trichrome growth! So far the Plasma is showing it’s potential and I think it will soon be a dominant force in the Grow Lighting industry!
It even seamed to increase the terpenes which honestly we thought our dank was already topped out on but I guess not…lol
Looking frosty good and smelling ultra sweet!
Here’s an update on the side by side: 500w Plasma vs. 1000w Metal Halide
We has some set backs the first week as the temps where not keeping even and the plasma was cold in it’s environment while the 1000W MHL was a heat source of it’s own. We rearranged a few things and now both environments are even-steven with low 35-45% humidity’s and “on time” temps in the mid 70’s and we are seeing results!
The fist set of comparison pics has the Plasma in the back.
Even with the set backs we see the plasma is still a few nodal tier’s taller with patterns about the same length but we expect the Plasma to become much thicker with the issues temp issues fixed.
Initially with low temps on the plasma we saw almost identical node spacing at 1-1/2″ to 2″ but since the temperature has been stabilized it’s seen quite a difference in growth since then we have seen 1″ to 1-1/2″ inch node spacing and we expect to see a much thicker plant (that we expect to go to flower sooner!)
This new technology could change the game with indoor and off season crops. With plants coming to harvest fast (and we hope fuller). The short Blueberry that was flowered under the Plasma is looking amazing but the real potential will be in the rapid growth of tighter spaced nodal development from vegetation stage with a thicker, fuller plant that get’s to flower sooner and harvests a better quality of cannabis!
Special thanks to Carlos Sativa, great photos, great grower!
