I am currently running 3x Super Lemon Haze and 3x Chocolope in a 5x5x8 with this 2000w LED and a 48” T5HO (3x 10k and 3x 2500k actinics).
I’ve browsed and browsed this forum and most lighting threads are pretty difficult to read through as a beginner. There seems to be an acronym for every single individual light out there and their respective suppliers. Without knowing what these acronyms mean, and without descriptions as to why any one light is better than the rest, I’ve just become more confused.
Sooooo, all that being said, I’m looking for some advice on how to modify my lighting setup to prioritized yeild both for this current harvest and future harvests.
The current LED is rated at 2000W (390 watts from the wall) and pushing 380-780nm full spectrum light. I have been considering adding two more of these lights to the setup. They seem to blast out tons of light and have great reviews and apparent par readouts. At $235, that’d put my total investment at $705 for a total of 1170 total true watts in a 5x5 for six plants.
Is there a better setup for the price that I should look into? Replies like “you should look at [acronym]. They make good lights” probably won’t be of much help since I won’t know what the acronym means or why their lights would be better than others.
You guys are all so great and have so much experience and knowledge to offer. I can’t wait to learn from you. Thank you so much in advance!
