GX 100 Vegeta Seeds&Clone station
PHYTOLEDS QUANTUM GX PROFESSIONAL VEGETATIVE (SEEDS STATION)
PhytoLEDs SEEDS STATION is a LED based lighting system specifically designed for the germination and production of cuttings. Unique in its kind, it ensures germination and a first luxuriant, healthy and effective vegetative phase.
The SWING structure in fire-painted tempered steel constitutes a perfect cultivation base, also thanks to the support arm adjustable in height and depth, designed and built to house exclusively the GX100 model of the PhytoLEDs Quantum Professional line, giving the system maximum stability and ease of use. The base of the SEEDS STATION is raised several centimeters and rests on four adjustable supports offering an important amplitude and perfectly radiated by the light of the LEDs. As for the other models in the PhytoLEDs GX Quantum Professional line, this version with modules in the PHT201 Vegetative standard can also be equipped with the PAR Optimizer Carter accessory, easy to assemble and capable of significantly increasing the luminous efficiency of PhytoLEDs by concentrating the light beam and limiting its lateral dispersion.
The PhytoLED GX100 Vegetative is equipped with a 3-band color spectrum with wavelengths belonging to a specific range for the absorption of chlorophyll A and B. PhytoLEDs GX100 SEEDS STATION is also equipped with 90 ° optical lenses already mounted as standard on the LED lighting system and spare 120 ° lenses contained within the packaging, to offer a greater irradiation angle as needed.

PhytoLEDs SEEDS STATION: Installation and use reports
I have a 120x120 grow box currently occupied. While waiting to finish the cycle and release it, I decided to try the Phytolite "Seeds Station". The aim is to save time and have the seedlings already germinated for a couple of weeks when the grow box will be free. I used: PHYTOLITE SEEDS STATION: LED Phytolite GX 100 vegetative mounted on a Swing support and equipped with an optional accessory, the "PAR Optimizer" reflector SOIL: Plagron Grow mix with perlite SEEDS: Amnesis k Muneca rusa Kritical-k Heated mini-greenhouse "Stewart" 52x40 22 Watts Pots 7x7x9 FIRST WEEK, 02/25/2019 I place the system. I mount it and turn it on. I realize, however, that having put it in the kitchen and wanting to keep it on for 20 hours / day, the strong blue light will annoy me a lot. My grow shop advised me to also buy the "Par Optimizer" reflector which concentrates the beam and limits lateral dispersion. I'm afraid I will have to buy it to avoid the hassle of having to put the system in the garage, where I could do without the carter but it is still too cold 01/03/2019 Light: 20 hours / day. I mount the newly purchased spotlight and I realize that now the annoyance is very reduced. The blue light hurts and I already have vision problems. Place 20 seeds. The first bud appears (3 days). It looks healthy. After a few hours he already has the leaves! I observe it in natural light and it already has a beautiful green color. Everything seems fine. The interior of the mini-greenhouse is wet. I open the ventilation holes a little. I spray water but I switch off both during the nebulization, and for an hour after the nebulization: I would not want the droplets to have a "slow effect" and burn the bud. They recommended an 18 hour / day cycle for germination but I want to try and leave it 20 hours / day. I have friends who have done it and tell me they have shortened the germination and planting times of a good one. I am in a hurry and I feel this way. 02/03/2019 Wow! What a joy, the buds are already ten now, but I notice that some do not seem in excellent shape. Also true that the seeds I am using are old. I had them for a year and I didn't keep them as I should have. Some shoots seem a little dehydrated. The earth has dried out enough and the transparent interior of the mini-greenhouse is no longer full of droplets but almost dry. Maybe I hurt to open the vents! I decide to close them again, I don't want the shoots to dry out. For now none of them are "racy" at all. Everyone has good proportions. It is a joy to see how they sprout. As you can see from the photos, they all have a nice green color. 03/03/2019 This morning there are 16 sprouted seeds! I believe the remaining 4 will not sprout. I used seeds that were too old and that had not been stored in temperatures. They spent a summer in the pantry, in the heat. All in all, I don't think I can complain. Otherwise everything seems fine. Yesterday I removed the transparent mini-greenhouse to get air. I took some photos both with the LED on and off, to show you the beautiful green of the leaves. 03/06/2019 I did the weekend away from home. I abundantly watered and left half a centimeter of water on the bottom of the mini-greenhouse. On my return, I found 18 seedlings on Monday morning. In the end almost all of them sprouted, despite the seeds had suffered and were quite old. The seedlings are healthy. The largest is now 6 centimeters high. Green coloring. Everything is going well for now. Sometimes I take the lid off and let some air in. I CAN SAY THAT THE FIRST WEEK OF GERMINATION ENDS PERFECTLY, WITHOUT PROBLEMS AND WITH A GERMINATION RATE OF 90% DESPITE THE OLD AND S poorly preserved seeds. 03/07/2019 Everything good. They grow. The tallest today is 6.5 cm! Half a centimeter in one day. But it is no longer at great distance from the others. They too have grown and are almost the same height. I decide 2 things: first. I throw the 2 jars that contain the seeds that have not germinated. I would say it is late now. 2 I remove the transparent plastic cover from the mini-greenhouse, I will water more often, due to the increased evaporation, but the plants will have more light, as the cover is always covered with condensation which I believe stops some of the light. I want to see how they go without. 03/10/2019 I left the station alone for a couple of days. Poured plenty of water to the bottom of the mini-greenhouse. Removed the lid for greater ventilation. All right apart from a few seedlings that show yellow spots I think almost certainly due to water droplets that I inadvertently dropped on the leaves and that have made "slow". Other than that the seedlings are really healthy and strong. The light is absolutely more than enough. As soon as my main grow box is free and I will finish the cycle (in a few days) I will move them. 03/15/2019 Leave the seedlings alone for another 4 days, I find them very robust and very grown, more than in height in width. What I know is that with blue light they are growing without spinning in the slightest, they are short, stubby and robust. The ones ahead already have 3 internodes. I took photos today that show robustness and vigor. Not all of them, some are always a little shabby, but I'd say it's a genetic issue, because the majority are very healthy. 03/17/2019 We have come to an end. Today I take some pictures and then move the best ones into the grow box! All in all the germination went very well. I find myself with 18 very healthy seedlings with internodes at the right distance and with a splendid green / healthy complexion. My opinion is that this seeds station works really well
