For a 2-1/2 ft X 5 ft closet, which system should I go with?


#1

A customer has a question and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks

I’m considering a grow-closet and I’ve been researching lighting. So far I’ve decided on HPS and MH, with CFLs for clones.
Then I visited a grow store who recommended light emitting ceramic, which are more than twice the cost as a HPS and MH combo, but produce less heat.

I’d go with two 315w cmh grow lights for more coverage

If you go with a 315 in that size space I would seriously consider a mover. It’s not big enough to justify two, but too long for 1 light by itself.

I like the cmh, but long and narrow spaces really favor two smaller fixtures.

Youll need good ventilation weather you choose led cmh or hps fixtures
All produce heat
I run a 630 cmh fixture and find it doesnt give off much more heat that the amount of leds fixtures i would be running to have equivalent actual wattage
So i say cmh also :wink:
