I am on a limited budget and I simply can’t afford lights that require financing and therefore am stuck with budget Amazon/eBay lights. I have had some success with the box type 1500 watt veg/bloom lights.
First question is this: Is a 1000 watt light that contains 5 200 watt LED’s equal or better than a 1000 watt light that contains 100 10 watt LED’s?
Next question: I am growing auto’s… trying ten this time. I have two of the 150 light 1500 watt lights. I know I need to add lights. Would it be better to group these lights and plants in a box formation and add a few more 1500 watt lights and saturate the area, or put them in say a 20 foot long row with each plant having a 300 or 600 watt light to itself? Basically a few more 1500 watter’s or twice as many smaller watt lights?
I am growing in a empty spare bedroom with heat, a/c and it is vented. I also run a ceiling fan at all times. The humidity runs about 55-60 % and I keep the temp at about 78 degrees. I use 5 gallon cloth pots and Nature’s Living Soil super soil topped with Diatomaceous earth. This is what I have for now and I need more lights. Perhaps I should I get a tent?
