450R1 tomato grow test

PS: This test used the “illumitex300w” in the first moment, and after that it used the LuminiGrow 450R1 during the adult stage favoring flowering and fruiting. And the source of the picturesare from: http://zelulazero.com/cultivo-tomates-cocktail-2oparte/.

Growing Cocktail tomatoes Grow(2ºPARTE)

After the first crop development we continue gathering information on this crop.

- For the second part we have no sequential photos (because the density of the plant makes negligible growth, yea enclosed Daily Photo of the tomato crop for you to appreciate its growth.
- For the second part of the culture with tomatoes we changed our lighting fixture led by another LuminiGrow 450R1. Then we’ll talk about this light and its characteristics.
- In this second part it was decided to increase the average temperature of the room, with a temperature of about 23 ° C.
- The plant has suffered lack of water several times due to problems with the reservoir and the high consumption of the tomato high in the flowering stage and the creation of fruit.

LIGHTING: This is the light LuminiGrow 450R1 which is adjustable at different wavelengths so that we can regulate the selected combination of colors is as follows. Configuration also has time to vary the amount of light. It has 4 adjustable channels, rectangular shape, it has fans in the center thereof for forced cooling circuits, said fans are activated when there is a high power LEDs work. We enclose the address of the manufacturer for more information if you need to know the same “http://www.luminigrow.com/”

LuminiGrow 450R1spectrometry/ 1m / Channels 100%

We have set the output channels as follows:

CH1 (Deep Red) = 85%
CH2 (Reddish) = 30%
CH3 (blue) = 35%
CH4 (Ultraviolet) = 85%

With this configuration we consume about 263W. (This is another advantage of the adjustable LEDs, consumption is less than their nominal power when modify its spectrum)

Although the manufacturer tells us this table channel settings for different requirements:

Mode – Ch1 Ch2 Ch3 Ch4
UVB – 0% 100% 0% 0%
VEG – 20% 50% 100% 0%
BLOOM – 100% 80% 0% 100%
Full Spectrum- 100% 100% 100% 100%
