I’ve been working on a little experiment lately.
I’ve got got 3 little 2’x2′ spaces set up in the basement, and each of them has a single Quantum Board in it. The first space on the left is a 4000K 80 CRI board, the second in the middle is a 3000K 80 CRI board, and the third is a 3000K 90 CRI board. Each of the 3 spaces has 4 jalapeno plants in it from the same pack of seeds, and I’m feeding all 12 plants the same amount of nutrients from the same batch, at the same time. All 3 boards are getting the same amount of power and are hung at the same height.
From Instagram live: Taking another run at overpowering a QB288, this time with an HLG-600H-54 and a boost converter. Sorry for the crappy quality and vertical video – the format it saves to isn’t great for watching on PC.
In this video, we assemble a Horticulture Lighting Group HLG 550 from individual components and then test it out.
Are the Quantum Board Reflectors worth your time and money? This video examines their effectiveness in an open air setting as well as in a tent.
This video covers the results of an experiment I did in order to determine how much power it’d take to destroy an HLG QB288 and QB304 Quantum Board. I was pretty damn surprised!
I returned home this week after a stint of working out of town and came back to some really cool new gear waiting for me, courtesy of Robin at Horticulture Lighting Group. There’s so much that I want to get done, but the first piece I was eager to experiment with was their Slate 3 Triple heat sink. You can check out my video review below, or continue reading and I’ll hit all the important points in text form for those of you who brought your phone to the bathroom and don’t want anyone to overhear you watching grow light videos while you’re in there.
The final video for the Quantum Board Kit review. Thanks again to HLG for sending the kits – these things rock!
