DIY LED GROW Light from parts purchased on the internet, parts list is on youtube video link.
Make your own beast! I'm going to scale this up but love the spectrum of these chips, I'm going to incorporate them into my build they are a bit pricy atm but hopefully in time they come down. I know a lot of folks are using a lot of cxb3070s etc, I'm going to employ these cobs as well in the final build for more control and more photons from the light for flowering.

Step 1: Find Parts.
www.ledgroupbuy.com is where I purchased parts for this build. I was interested in the chip after hearing reds sleep plants faster if they see it before lights out. I'm chasing biomimicry.
If you need skills to put this together search some youtube videos but I show the critical places in the photos.
TOOLS NEEDED: 1 MINI SCREW DRIVER Set. MINI MINI Eyeglass Mini. =)
(optional and safer): Solder Iron: "TIN" the ends of your wires to makes sure no strays and clip excess before inserting into your manifold on the 5UP or whatever board you decide to go with if you use one.
