Accidentally ordered two lights for a 2.3x2.3, happy accident or overkill?

Hi this is my first post/first grow so I apologize if I break any rules, will try my best to avoid doing that lol. Anyways I accidentally ordered the mars hydro ts600 meaning to get the ts1000, long story short they are both on the way right now lmao. I was wondering, should I use both lights in the mars hydro 2.3x2.3? Would they fit? or would it be overkill and I should just send the 600 back for a refund?? Thanks for any replies it is much appreciated!!!

Using the ts 600 myself along with a dimmable qb board in a 2.5x2.5 equalling a totally true watts of 250w the 2x ts 600 is 200 what’s in my opinion it’s gonna be fine but depends on number of plants

I have the mars hydro 600. It was my first light on my first grow. It did really well on one plant. :blush::v:

I was thinking of growing one maybe two at a time but I would be using the 1000 and the 600 so i’d have around 250w max (that’s going off of the advertised wattage lol)

Sweet deal I may have to use just that for a few days so I’m glad it’ll do okay until the 1000 gets here, though in your opinion is 250w to much for my size tent?

Me… 250 watts covering 5 sq ft. Not a problem. That’s 50w per foot. As long as temps are not an issue the plants will love it.
I have 450 in my 3x3.

sounds good not sure why I didn’t use that equation tbh :joy::joy: and I’m hoping so, I’m using dr.earth as I heard it is comparable to gaia greens mix. I’m hopeful I get some decent bud with the light & nutes combo lmao

I’m running 460 watts from the wall right now in my 3x3 at 940 PPFD and able to max out at 514 watts. No such thing as to much light/power with dimmer knobs. :slight_smile:
