Alrighty folks, the first contest of 2013 is now officiallt underway...

The nice folks at Method Seven have been so kind as to give us several pairs of these glasses to test out and then give away to our wonderful community members! These glasses will allow you to see in your grow room with all the lights on and not hurt your eyes and not distort the color of your plants.

Although High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lighting offers an efficient solution for some industrial applications, such as the lighting of warehouses, and for Grow Room lighting, HPS lighting also creates visual problems for people working within its environment. The nature of these visual problems and the effectiveness of various solutions are discussed in this paper.
The following visual capabilities were evaluated within a Grow Room environment (HPS lighting conditions):
  • • Color Perception
  • • Ability to focus on shapes and motion
  • • The “strobe” light effect
  • • Visual clarity
These capabilities were evaluated, as seen through all of the following:
  • • The “naked eye”
  • • Method Seven glass “Rendition” lens
  • • Method Seven polycarbonate “Fission+HPS” lens
  • • Premium-brand sunglass, with glass lenses
  • • Popular sunglass, with polycarbonate lenses
HPS lighting is effective in the Grow Room because the light transmission is within a narrow “yellow” portion of the light spectrum (around 590 nanometers). Flowering plants need this wavelength of light to carry on photosynthesis. HPS lighting is also thought to be effective in industrial applications, because the large lumens of light generated per watt of electricity offer an economical solution.
This same concentration of yellow light makes it difficult for an individual to see properly. Humans see best in natural sunlight, or in “Balanced White Light” (BWL). BWL light, like natural sunlight, covers the entire visible spectrum of 390 to 750 nm. This broad spectrum of light allows us to see natural looking colors and to also easily recognize shapes and motion. Under HPS lighting our eyes are saturated with yellow light and we are unable to recognize any other colors.
Additionally, humans require a certain ratio of blue light (around 505 nm) to yellow light (around 555 nm) to be able to recognize shapes and to detect motion. There is a deficiency of blue light in an HPS lighting environment, and this profoundly degrades our ability to focus. This point will be explained further in the discussion of “rods” and “cones.”

To enter this contest simply reply to this thread and tell us what your goal is for 2013. Are you trying to be more positive? Make better concentrates? Grow super big mutant marijuana plants that set a new worlds record...??

Hey, hows it going? My New Years resolution was to quit drinking alcohol, quit smoking my medicine and instead, start vaporizing  and consuming edibles, plus to exercise more and to advance in my grow opts. So far, i've done 4 out of 6 and i'm working on advancing my grow opts. The exercising will have to wait until next month when i get discharged from the hospital after i recover from my chemo treatment. The hospital has me on Fall Prevention. I keep a positive mind through all the struggles i deal with in sustaining a healthy mental state and motivating myself to stay active and on top of my game through treatment. As for my grow opts, i'm trying to sustain a better crop, with expansion and bigger harder colas. So far, ive been having minor issues that cause me some fluffy buds and powdery mildew. I am getting better at it and often i check the status everyday, so these glasses would benefit me alot so I can see my flowers with clarity under HD lights. When I saw these glasses, my eyes glared in amazement, and I quickly said, WoW! Thats tite! And thank you for the oppurtunity.

2)  Relax more...
3)  Healthier Living
4)  Sell the Car
5)  Win my SSDI case (with attrny this is my 5th yr trying)
6)  Move the 3 of us into a single level Living environment.
7)  Grow enough Medication to be able to stay out of collectives (not based on needs but visiting friends)
8)  Replace Laptop (I- sticks, and V- has no button)
9)  Travel out of state to visit many Friends and Relatives while I can.
10) Win something from this web site at least once (in my lifetime)  :)

Not necessarily in this order...
