Great thread! Dont know how I missed it before.....

I kinda stopped following up with LEDs since I completed my build, forgot about my build thread to be honest....cool to see it linked here. I'll have to post an update on it's finished look, and resulting plant growth.

One thing I think some of us are still tweaking is getting the right spectrum mix to best promote red plants as that seems to be the only issue with LEDs. I get a bit of color with my mix, but I agree with the most in that somethings missing.

How many of these builds use a plexiglas shield? Anyone ever play around with using different types of it? Ie clear, blue, green tint...
