I am super duper confused about sizing lights. I’ve heard the hard and fast rule of 32 - 35 watts per square foot but that doesn’t seem to apply to LED’s?
I’ve also been looking into PAR which seems to be the best way to determine how much light plants need, but PAR changes based on how close the light is to the plants. It doesn’t help that manufactures aren’t honest when it comes to coverage. Is anyone able to help clarify without getting too deep into the weeds? I’ve looked it up online but I’m still confused.
With all that said I bought this light for my 4x4 grow space:
I plan on growing at most 5-6 plants at one time. Will this provide enough light during the flowering stage to promote healthy growth or will I need to get another light? I really appreciate the help.
