Hello fellow farmers,
I’ll start by giving some context on the current state of affairs:
- 30” x 18” x 36”
- 36” x 20” x 62”
- HLG-100 4,000K
- 45 > 100 Watts
- 48” x 24” x 60”
- HLG-260 3,000K
- 135 > 285 Watts
The first thing you’ll notice is I don’t have a light for my propagation/clone tent. It’s a rather small tent and I want to keep things consistent on the lighting front, I’m extremely happy with my HLG-100 and HLG-260 so I was totally onboard to buy another HLG light for my clones.
As you can see, the clone tent is pretty small. I found the perfect light from HLG: the HLG-45. Unfortunately, they no longer sell it and after reaching out to them, they confirmed that they have no plans on restocking it.
They recommended the HLG-65 but I only have 36" of height and that would be more PPFD/DLI than little cuttings would need. I looked at what was out on the market and wasn’t able to find a light that’s appropriate for this size tent/clones. So here I am! Time to custom build
@dbrn32 and anyone else who has some knowledge on the matter, would you please help me put together a light for the tiny itty bitty clone tent? Budget isn’t a primary concern, I just want to build the right light for the job.
Thanks in advance for your help and advice!
