LED vs HPS/MH H.I.Ds


#1

What lighting system do you prefer and why?


#2

I prefer mh/hps lights im looking at the hlg qb 550 or the growmau5 pucks from rapid led but I’m getting a little over 20oz of wet trimmed bud a plant with 2 600w hps/mh lights in my 4x4x6 tent i still have 3 left to harvest my critical bilbo was 645 grams of trimmed bud. I already have a couple green and blue led strips.


#3

I just keep hearing how inexpensive led is to run vs hps/mh


#4

Hps and mh still beat all cheap leds thers is several you tube videos proving that along with the hlg quantum board being number 1 or number 2 as best grow light i think kings led beat it by 2 tenths of a par but not worth the money compared to the quantum board. I got my lights new off Craigslist for 150 dollars for 3 vivosun 600w mh and hps with a fan and filter. And works great for me

After cure how much is 20oz wet trim bud?

I see you harvested on plant of four at 650+grams wet? That’s a lot of bud. I wonder if you ca n accomplish those yields with less watts at the wall


#10

Around 6oz or 7oz after a 2 1/2 month cure


#11

Ok. So harvest, wet trim, weigh
20oz wet to 7oz cured, about a third…
What rh and temp do you cure in?


#12

Nice!!! But this what I got setup…want to keep small…600 hps may be too much…


#13

When ur girls grow up ur gonna wanna put some very bright lights on them


#14


With 450watt led on…can see space better


#15

Yes i just divide by 4 so 20oz lowest is 5oz but say you got rocks for buds then it will be more than 5oz cured weight

#17

Meh, probably not putting much wattage through the LEDs themselves. But no worries itll grow pot


#18

What does your light actually consume from the wall in watts
