I’ve been using CFL’s with minimal harvest as expected.
I wanted to know if you guys thought this would be a good purchase.
I have one blue mystic seedling and one Northern lights seedling both auto flower, both in 2.5 x 3 gorilla tent.
Will this be enough or possibly too much for that size area?
Not a all @Jpositive I’m growing in a 3’ x 3’ gorilla tent with a Platinum p450 which is equal to a 600 watt MH/HPS . watt’s = weight . Though use your CFL’s on seedlings.
@Jpositive You should be fine just watch how close you get leds lights they can still burn your plants from light intensity not heat
If your leaves start to taco back your light off your to close leaves should be flat @Tee3737 is right light = weight
I run 2) 300 watt leds and 2 ) 400 watt cob style led lights in my 6x4 tent
Hope this helps and happy growing
Thank you both! Making purchase now!
I’m actually buying a second tent and I’m going to try an experiment:
1 tent using the Mars 600 LED full spectrum on 1 Blue Mystic auto flower in fox farm ocean forest soil.
1 tent using cfl 6400 (veg), 2700 (flower) on 1 Northern Lights auto flower in fox farm ocean forest soil.
Excited to see the outcome. Maybe I should do a grow journal…
I would definitely start a journal for your test
And tag me if you do I’d like to follow it
I use only led light start to finish right now with no problems yet I just entered 3rd week of 12-12
But I will be building a veg box so I can get a rotating harvest going so I’d be interested in seeing what does better
Aim for 25 - 50 “true” watts per sq foot. 25 is bare minimal, 50 is much better. You’re at about 37 watts per sq. foot. That’s what I have and my plants are growing pretty bushy.
Hey i have a similar led light off ViparSpectra 600Watt and can highly recommend! Less electricity wasted and easy to handle!greetings
