Well, I am going to talk something about the SP250 lights. They are very white lights LED quite like HPS.
The photo looks quite different from what you can see though your eye. Looks a lit bit yellow color through the photo but that shits are very bright.
I am trying to find a way to upload my photo, lol

Above the Quick Reply Box, on the left there is a Gallery Image button. Click on that, then upload the photo from your device. SImple as that mate.
I imagine SP250 will be a good light mate. Marshydro are claiming 2-2.5 gpw so let's see :)

For the light, it is epistar chips, no fans on the panel, meanwell driver. The draw power of each is claimed around 230 watts. And it's adjustable. Max 250watts.
I got the instruction paper in the box but it was sent wrongly with the model SP-200 on it. And the saler send me a correct version by email.

For the seeds, I started with 2 of them first. I put them into a cup with the wet tissue on for 2 days. They are not sprouted as I what I learned on Youtube videos . But the seeds start to sink to the bottom of the cup. And I put them in the soil last Monday.

I am surprised they sent you the correct light :lol:
What, do you mean last monday like 10 days ago? I think the seeds might be dead if they never showed above ground so far mate.

I turned only one light on in my 4x4 tent first.
There are yoyo hangers together with the light. I followed the instructions of adjusting the height over 30 inches at seedling stage.
18 hours on, 6 hours off. The first week, nothing happened from the bottom of the soil. LOL. It sprouted finally on last sunday.

So far, I did not use any Nutrients yet. I will do it next week.
The Mars SP-250 works really well. Can't wait to see the performance at veg & bloom stage.

Well, the ventilation system is not arranged yet, but that's not a big problem. I can wait, besides, I am still waiting for my payday

Don't rush with the nutrients mate. What soil are the seedlings in?

Well, it's hard to say. It takes 3-4 days for one seed to split, nothing happened to the other one, but i noticed it can sink in the bottom of the water. Then I directly put them in the soil. Now both of them are growing well!

Well, Initially, I did not see anything happened in the soild on Friday. And I thought both of them were dead or something due to it's my first impatient growing. And I forgot to set the timer when I was out on Saturday. So the light turns 24 hours on the whole Saturday. And was closed when I came back at noon on Sunday. And find out it was sprouted already like what it looks in the photo i updated. I am not sure how it will affect my strains. The soil is quite dry, and I dropped more water. Now it backs to the normal.
I just turn off the light, the temp inside is 76 F, humidity at 60. with no ventilation system.
Can't wait to see them grow bigger and bigger together.

They will grow bigger and bigger buddy. Just be patient. Also don't give them any nutrients for now. Your soil seems to be rich. Go by the colour of the plants. If you can't judge them just take regular photos and update your thread so we can keep an eye. It's always better to switch the LED panel off when taking photos and use your camera flash.
