Changing my light, what should i buy?

I have the money, i have the space, i have it all, i want the biggest yields possible, what should i use? HPS or LED? What model? what brand? and also how many watts?
I’m a hydroponic grower btw.


The first question everyone will want to know is how big is your space?

Do u have some brand u recommend or something like that?

I would look into LED qb style boards. HlG, Spiderfarmer, marshydro, electric sky to name a few. I know mars and spiderfarmer have a few 400 watt leds. With a quality led I like to shoot for 35 to 40watts per sq foot. You would need 4 of the 400 watters if my math is right. Leds would save a ton on electric over hps. The rule of thumb for hps is 50 watts per sq ft.

Do you plan on flowering the whole 12m² as canopy? Typical hps setup there is about 1 600 watt hps per square meter. You could certainly get into different sized led fixtures, but good stuff for that size space will get expensive.
