Which led grow lights would you suggest for veg in a 2×2×5 tent? Also which led lights for flower? Plan on flowering in the same tent, just gonna switch out the lights. Was thinking of a quantum board for flower, seeing great things about it! But I’m clueless about veg lights.
I think @MAXHeadRoom is building a led for veg called Photon Fantom Design Lights
I agree with QB for flower
@Drillbit I think the first question is what is your budget for this, and are you comfortable with putting something together yourself?
Budget for light alone is around 200$. @Covertgrower
Wasn’t sure if I’d need two different led’s though. Been talking 2 another grower using a 3000k quantum board in a 2×2 space and she thinks that board alone would suffice for veg and flower. What do you think?
That photon can be build for like 150$ for veg. My veg room is 2x6. So could probably do cheaper
So then yes? 3000k would be sufficient for both veg and flower? Think I found a kit on the bay.
Ya, don’t worry about buying 2 different lights if you’re planning on going with leds. Check out a qb 135 kit.
@Drillbit yes 3000k will flower veg excellent.
I would just use 1 fixture for both. LEDs do a great job of both veg and flowering.
Cobs or Boards.
There are plenty of quality options.
You don’t need 2 lights. Research the kit that @dbrn32 suggested. The QB are being used by several members with excellent results including myself. With your budget you can’t go wrong with the QBs
I have been using meizhi leds and love them I have 1-600 3-300s 2-450s all work great but I love my 630w cmh reflector and ballast with 2- 315 w Phillips 3100k Bulbs I veg and flower with both unless your looking to build something then @dbrn32 is your man
I use the 135w, 3000k quantum board that @dbrn32 suggested, in a 2’x2’x5’ and it works amazingly well. I love it, and highly recommend it.
How many plants can you grow in your 2×2×5 @raustin? And how tall do you let them get to before flowering?
One! I’ve tried growing more than one plant in my 2x2, but it was a big mistake. One plant needs at least a 2x2 space on its own. I veg my plants for about six weeks before I flip to flower. However, I am using a SCROG which keeps the plant short. I’ll tag you into my grow so you can see how I grow in a tiny tent. It can be done!
Please do! Thx @raustin
I think you’ve just given me the parameters for my third tent… 2x2 with a 135w QB.
