the photo story goes on

in the following week I got a chance to buy another light, brand new but second hand, 900W LED (240W real draw) KingLED (attention, NOT Kind LED), paid what would be US$70. And so I thought, why run only one light when you can run two for double the (electricity) cost?

You can see they are producing completely different colours even though they're both claiming to be full spectrum, including IR and UV.
And yes, now I see it - the lights are still too high! I didn't want to burn the plants, I wasn't sure how they'll react, so I went with "better safe than sorry".

It didn't take long, and I saw these guys IN my run-off tray. Looked like 2 different bugs, or 2 diff stages of life - the winged fungus gnats, and the other guys, that were just dead. Some sort of aphids I guess, never found out what really. Tried my first yellow sticky cardboard for gnats, hmmm...
