i bought this spider farm sf1000d to get started … can anyone recommend a led i can add for flowering …that will help my yield an i am growing in organic soil with worm casting. i have 3 plants ones sum maconga i got seeds from dispensary nug… others are auto flower white widows.from here.
i got dupped with that spiderfarm light they put up wrong chart… for it they put up sf1000 chart for sf1000d.so iam ocding the shit out of led lights. so i realize i need sumthing better for flowering.i am in week 3 of growing.im not a rich fella so cheaper is better.
If you are limited by budget then you will have more success growing 1 plant at a time. Lighting that will effectively flower 3 plants will set you back more than $500. You might be better off with an HPS/CMH combo, which is less expensive to buy, but you have to be prepared for more expensive electric bills since they are far less efficient.
There’s just no cheaping out on lights. They’re just expensive, and the most important piece of equipment you have to buy. Look for something refurbished on hlg site, and use code DUDE. I use the 350r, and it’s plenty for a 2x4 tent.
thanks for that answers. i only really care about the two WW autos. other is just to see if its gonna be female or a hermi.i read some where alot of seeds from dispensary are gonna herm on yea. might just toss it … stick too the two autoWW .

i have a 20 amp breaker on my plug that i use … an i am worried about over loading it. my house has old wiring was upgraded in 76. so its as old as me.hahahahai can use up too 8 or so amps before its gonna get over loaded.any tips here would be much appreciated.also i love to build things an seen many people say build ur own light. now that s interesting.
Seems like a pretty good light for 1 plant. The Spider Farmer seems to be pretty much the same light. They both claim to be 200 watts and built with Samsung LM301b diodes. That said, I’m perplexed why the Grass Land is far less expensive. I’m not sure I trust it. Quality 200 watt lights using LM301b diodes tend to run between 200 - 300 dollars.
It’s wise to not trust Amazon reviews for these lights. Unscrupulous LED sellers frequently misrepresent their light capabilities, so it is best to stick with known names such as Mars, Spider Farmer, or HLG.
nothing like waking up to them nasty fungas nats . i guess maybe to much watering. how do you guys get rid of these little pests. i did the hydrogen peroxide and cinnamon. an i will hold off on watering a bit more. would love to hear how some of u take care of these buggers. i am kinda scared of none organic remedies.
