I could use some light suggestions please

I just ordered an AC Infinity 844 . The 48"x 48" x 80" and the Coudline T6 online duct fan with Temp/Himidity Co troller. I need some suggestions on a nice light when I get one I will be able to have a separate vegging area finally :blush:

I think any of the LEDs with Samsung bulbs and a Meanwell driver will get the job done - but once I tried HLG - I don’t think I will ever go back. I’m running the 350 Diablo and and 1000 Spider Farmer in a similar dimension - plenty of vortex lol.

What is your light budget?

I’m torn between spending 500 now and 1299 on the diablo later and spending 800 on the blackbird now and being done. I don’t know how much better it gets after that beside efficiency like PPF per watt. Im running on 3 GE grow lights and a smart light set to red right now :rofl:

Ok, sounds like you already have a good idea of what you’re going to do, and a decent budget.
You should be in good shape either way you go.
If you decide your first option and want a good yet inexpensive light for starting up that 4x4, while you save for the Diablo, I can firsthand recommend Bloomspect led. They have a 240 watt led that is like $150 with a $40 coupon on Amazon so you get the light for $110
2 would be more than enough light, good light.
I’ve used them and you would be a lot closer to getting your Diablo than if you spend the whole $500 now.
You can see some of my photos to see what I did with them, the lights probably have more potential than my growing practices provide for these plants, so your results may be better.

I just set the same tent up to replace another. Two Hlg 260 xl’s would be nice in there. Just buy the right light the first time and be done. I would look at Hlg

Thats not bad for veg but I’m looking for some flower stage lighting. I don’t mind spending a lil. The 3 grow lights I have now together cost $120 plus a smart bulb that’s like $30.

Holidays coming up you should catch some good sales on lights. @Capt.Cola Has made a good Suggestion for your 4x4 space. From experience using 2 lights and having flexibility is a good thing.

Thank kelly. I like the versatility of having two lights. It’s also what was recommended to me when I first started. These lights have grown pounds a bud. Nothing but good things to say about Hlg

I hear you my friend , I use the same two lights in a 4x4 space. When I purchased mine it was about 370 apiece to the door. They are offering them now for about 320 + 10% off dude code. That’s a pretty good deal.

Thanks ! I’m gonna find an hlg as soon as my filter and fan come in. Tent will be in tomorrow ! I like the idea of have multiple lights also. I’m gonna keep the GE lights I have now for seedlings but get a few more for side lights so I can hit the lower areas of the plant.


She’s not doing the best but not terrible. I feel like I over defoliated or pruned and got a little root bound in my pots but that will be fixed on the next go around :blush:

They just came out with a black Diablo for 799. Hig is the best led light. You get what you pay for in the light game. Better light equals bigger buds. Facto

Yeah thats the blackbird. I think im gonna go with that.

U have a ton of options lol. Here is another to look. Based in Canada but do USA and all. Look under northernscroggerdotcom he has badazz light sweet tents also u can sign up for scrogging classes online or in person with him. He has some amazing scrogs besides there hlg would be my top selection I love the hlg lights so far and won’t switch I don’t believe. Awesome people to deal with if u have to deal with any of the staff thru hlg lights work awesome. A bit pricey off the top but we’ll worth it in the end. I currently run a scorpion diablo and a 260xl with 3 7va bars and a far red in a 4x7x8 room and 2x 260xls with 1c uva bars and a far red in a 4x4x8 room all works great super coverage I’m sure there could be alot more power there but for what I do this is perfect for that area. I get solid bud from both rooms good luck remember spend a bit now and be happily rewarded at the end of the grow or buy cheaper now and most likely regret spending the cash on the cheaper lights.
