Do they effect growth at all?

i'm going to guess that it is some brand-name hydroponic cultivation equiptment.

LuNaTiX: please elaborate.

hydro power is electricity produced by running water.
In areas that get their power from dams, it is common to call the overhead power lines "hydro-power lines". That's my guess.

if that is indeed his meaning, he didn't make it clear enough for a fool like me :smile:.

in this case, hydrolicly produced electricty is going to be running into the same power grid as all the other power i would think. either way, the power comming into each home will be regulated to the same voltage/amperage. there would be no difference in efectiveness of lighting.

to put it in simple terms....

he's probably wondering if overhead powerlines will affect his grow.

the wires should be high enough to allow growth. it may however facilitate mutation, which is as good as bad. could make an interesting phenotype might harm insect eggstoo, which is a bonus,
i considered such a spot for a while, but forund a better spot

well, i have grown in the past under powerlines. if you can get away with it, good. but realize a couple things:
1. they spray chemicals to kill back vegetation under power lines
2. LEO searches under powerlines frequently
3. Popular place for mountain bikers and horse people to ride.
4. Utility crews usually check up on the lines ever so often.

if you can get around all those, then good luck, i've grown successfully under powerlines, though i don't know if i just got really lucky.

Sorry, yeah they are very large electric power lines, the heavy duty ones that go from city to city. there is no train for bikers or hikers even, just a deer trail which if far enough away. There nice because they are nice spots that allow good light. Where I live they dont use chemicals, but manually cut it back every few years. Its just that a buddy of mine said that mj plants dont grow good around them.

So you've got an area where vegetation grows thickly, needing it to be cut back every few years in situ to where there's heavy power lines. What does that tell you?

Your "buddy" is wrong.

Cannabis is just a regular C3 solar hungry mesophyte, but blessed with psychoactive flowering tops. I can assure you, 240v running live through hydro nute water, direct to the roots, doesn't harm them in the slightest. It will you if you put your hand in the rez LOL. I've also grown in a location under power lines sporting a transformer and no drama. Plants don't suffer be it Cannabis or other genera.

yeah, they grow l ike two feet from 400w light with transformer...

why not 100 ft away from high voltage?
