A question from a fellow grower:
I am a small time grower and have been using cfl’s, 5000 to 6000K for veg. and 2700 to 3000k for budding.
I am thinking of changing to LED’s. The newer style of led has much more output. I would like to change because of bulb design (more direct light beam) and power usage. Can I use the same logic as with the CFL’s? And use 3000K and 6000K? I really don’t want to spend $1000. to make the change over. My grow room 3’ x 3’ x 7’ high.
For budding I am using about 250 watts of CFL’s and that does need to be cooled or left in an open room.
I am growing for the first time Gold Leaf, very healthy looking and starting to bud nicely!
