    Hi all I would like to share some of my diy scrubbers and ask for some advice. I have attached a couple of pics for you to look at. The pic of the screen is about 8 days growth it doesn't seem to get any better than this and is not exporting nutrients all that well. Any advice would be helpful.

    This is a new one I have built I have been using a mix 5050 leds on the little one but this one is not going so well I will be swapping the 5050 leds with some 5630 warm white leds to see if it gets any better.

    The first one looks like it's growing pretty well, what level of nutrients are you seeing that you are having problems getting under control?

    the SMD type LEDs, the 5050 and 5630 are generally not as intense as a standard 3W chip on a star PCB. The intensity is quite different.
