    Mobile,
    Obviously a much better engineered product then the Orchidweb product.... but the 20 degree models are definitely too narrow for our applicaiton.
    I'm very curious, nice looking unit.... what is the price?

    (I would avoid Orchidweb's product)

    First cape (alba) pic:

    (Already showing pretty nice dew production)

    The other cape (red) was smaller and is taking longer to recover

    Looking Good Butch!

    So, are you planning on adding more? Switching over to these...?
    Mmmm, after I got a bunch of T-5's, not I am going to have to dump them!
    Well, I went from VHS to DVD to Blu-ray... I guess I can make the change!

    Joking aside, nice results!
    Will it "redden up" some of the plants too? I am wondering about the spectrum width...
    Nah, just picking on ya!
    I do think this is the wave of the future tho.
    Just hope I can afford it!

    Take care!

    that is a good question. Sort of the plan to have the red from in the treatment at the same time. Also can compare pics with those that are being grown here in full sun to see difference.

    Yes, it was my intention too but the red is just now showing new growth.... its lagging in its recovery

    Another week or so should do it, I see the beginnings of 3 new leaves poking through the substrate

    Paul, at the current price level I don't think T5's have anything to worry about for primary lighting applications, at least for a couple more years. But now for a special application or presentation then yep... this LED may be the light of choice.

    It's late, my mind is a blur, and I had a wild thought....
    With those here who demand that VFT's be grown outdoors,
    primarily for the pure light of the sun....
    would that perhaps be an acid test of sorts?
    Kinda like shooting for the moon?

    Sorry, I should be in bed sleeping instead of asking for someone or something to walk on water...
    but I was thinking of some "death cube" at the local Lowe's, with one of these lights glued to the top with an actual "thriving" VFT inside!
    Ah, now I can go to sleep with that vision in my head!

    Sweet Dreams!

    (Hey, not a bad idea/challenge really, is it?) Like the mini-reef aquariums on the market now-a-days, this could revolutionize the CP market, with new toys to decorate an executive's office!
    Oh man, I HAVE to get to bed!
