    The giant crosses under the LED hasn't coloured up much so I thought I should upgrade to the 16W by the same company. The lamp is on its way but here is what I discovered recently with the 7W. Apparently, it works very well!

    I took a photo of another member's Red Piranha plant (still bagged up but placed near T5s) for comparison.


    The same batch of Red Piranha - these have been placed under the 7W LED for 5-6 days

    Conclusion: Cheap R&B LEDs wins Branded T5 FLs (in hot tropical Singapore)
    For my climate this season, most of the VFTs have reacted poorly to the heat. The LEDs are much cooler compared to the T5s.

    Cindy, do you have a picture of your setup with the LED's? Also have a link to what LED lamp you're using if its not DIY?
    Friendship is like peeing on yourself: everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling that it brings.
