@MAXHeadRoom I know you’ll know this off your head, what is the watts per foot one should be aiming for.
My super chi light is… Well… Err… Not that super. Not a surprise there.
So I actually done some maths to see what ive currently got, which is 200w of cfl which equals 22.2w/sqf.
Now my plan was to use the led panel and 4 cfls, however that just equals what I had @ 24.4w /sqf
So my new plan is to use 8 cfls plus the panel which brings it up to 35.5w/sqf.
Is this enough? Is it over kill? Is it ever overkill lol
My poor poor electric bill.
Also i have a concern/question, as the chi panel is veg and flower, does this mean half the leds are waisted given they are the wrong k output. Maybe I would be better just adding 5 cfls to the current setup. Heat isn’t really an issue, ad these flower bulbs are much cooler than the the white 6500k (irc) I’m using to veg. I doubt I’ll be putting any of my veg under leds the cfls seem to work fine for that.
Also if I was to replicate your set up, but 2 panels, what is the actual output of them, is it over 320w?? That’s what the chi + 8led is. Also Can you get the panel is the kelvin you want eg 100% 3500k /5000k. As I said above I doubt I’d go led for veg higher kelvins on led I’m not interested in. Even if I was, I’d want 100% 6000k+ boards.
I know alot of questions. Sorry.
