I highly recommend the roleadro 400w cob. It’s great for vegg, it’ll give you nodes that stack on top of each other. Great for getting a jump start on outside plants. It’s pretty good for flowering too. Although their 300w cob is better for flowering
I’ve got a couple of the Roleadro 400w cobs. For the money they do a pretty good job. They’re pretty inefficient, and only pull about 180watts. They’re good for about a 2’x2’ grow.
Of all the amazon lights I’ve bought they’re the best. Still, I can’t wholeheartedly recommend them because for just a little more a novice diy’er can build an eb lightstrip light that offers about the same light penetration with half the energy usage. DIY with bridgelux eb strips
I pulled one of the two of the 4 cob lights, and with only 2 months only them I just couldn’t do it. mine have 1 low power driver per cob and fan combo it would have probably limited the choice of replacement led’s
I am pleased for you that you are in good weather, the weather down here is mucky / cold / wet / windy and generally shite exterior , you must be in a micro climate…i look forward to your Quack Report in post Guy Fawkes…Further !..Jim Lad
I’m thinking (always dangerous after a few beers), a full height solar+LED light tent won’t be needed until probably week 6.
Until then, I can use the climate controlled space for hanging my 8’ drying net and adjust humidity, heat, fan and UV lamp to exactly the right conditions to ensure a good Harry Rotter free dry for all five of my outdoor plants.
If it looks like the shortfall is going to mean a dry winter/spring. I can easily design a small scale set-up with lights and use the big tent after all outdoor buds have dried.
So many ideas… so little energy.
Where’s there’s a will, there’s a way.
