I have a 2x2x4 Tent 15 gal pot in the center. Is the below light to much light for my tent considering the dimensions? The bottom of the linked page shows light hang distances from plant, looks like I got to big of light considering the room I have with pot + plant height and only 4 foot tent to begin with?
The 1200 will be sufficient through much of flowering then you can toss in the 300 if you can make it fit. Four foot tall tent will be tight. I have a few plants in one under a 1500 and in 5 gallon pots. I am running out of space.
The Amazon product info says 252 watts, so I think you are fine. That’s 62.5 watts per square foot. The standard is 50 watts per square foot, so you should get some nice dense buds. Considering the three fans, that is probably about right. Quantum, LG, and COB lights would just use a little less electricity for the same results.
That Amazon light can work for tent 2’x4’, but that chip is very similar as Mars 300 led, it is very old chips, if you see all Mars lights, you will know that chips is very old chips. You can see ECO or MarsII series, the chips upgraded a lot
As long as you stick to 2 x 2 it should be fine. You are good for light. Now you just have to worry about nutes, pH, temperature, bugs, etc. Farming is not easy, but it can be very rewarding. I got 7 ounces dry weight of buds off a Northern Lights plant grown in not much more space.
I got 7oz dry from one White Widow Autoflower in a 2x4 tent using 535 true watts (KingLED and CRX Sunny COB) of Chinese lights. The buds were long and spindly but dense.
They ran hotter than I wanted and the 535 draw vs 32,000 lumens vs footprint pushed me to other options. Still though, the smoke is outstanding and I got a decent haul from one plant (half a gram per energy watt)…
The Meanwell Driver/Quantum Board DIY kits are an option but a 315 CMH in that size tent would crush a grow…
I am running a SHO T5 this grow and loving the light.
