LED efficiency question


#1

Hi all, I hope everyone is feeling fantastic!

Setup: 2 x 300w (actual wattage combining the both = 300 wats)

Would this set-up be efficient enough to grow 5-6 healthy, happy yielding plants?

Thanks

For 50 watts/square foot, giving each plant 2x2’, 6 plants would be 24 square feet, 24x50 watts, you’d want around 1200 watts, optimally.


#3

Of course, not every grow is “optimal,” and still produces decent yields.


#4

I’d say four of those units would be about perfect. Sorry for the multiple posts.

Thanks for your prompt response @elheffe702
An optimal grow is what I’m aiming for - but on a budget haha. Another 2 of these are do-able though.


#6

300 watts each, yeah?


#7

Yes :slightly_smiling_face: @elheffe702


#8

How big is your grow space?

@elheffe702

I see you have this covered…Thank you good advice thumb


#10

I’m following, exactly what I was wondering.

I have about a 4x4 grow area. I found a deal on another 2 LED’s so should have plenty of light for my autos. Thanks for the advise @elheffe702
