Proper lighting

which is Best a 1000w or 2000w full spectrum lighting in a green house outside ?

Watching, lol :astonished:

You want to add light just to keep plants vegging longer?

I see what it says but couldnt fix it …
it was an either or question…

Answer is probably neither. I was trying to ask what the purpose of adding lights to the greenhouse is? And how big is the greenhouse?

ive got a fairly good size green house and ive got a couple 1957 railroad carts fully secure and 1 is fully equipped with electricity . i can either go mother natures route and allow her to do my lighting for me or i can go railroad cart and either a 1000w or a 2000w full spectrum lighting system .
the reason why im asking is cause i havent yet purchased the lighting system for the railroad cart

ill get a better picture of the green house in the morning

The term full spectrum leads me to believe leds, and when you start talking about leds that big that’s usually an imaginary number. Most of those lights consume a few hundred watts tops and are lucky to have flowering intensity for a 3x3 tent.

I could tell you more if I a had a specific model to research. But really need more information in general to say. A greenhouse should be naturally lit, and you would either as lighting to increase veg period, add lighting to increase flowering intensity, or both. The lighting requirements there vary a lot.

That’s pretty good! Actually it’s a phrase I use on the skeet field: “The 410 is your friend!” lol. (I used to be a nationally ranked NSSA shooter).

I feel like the railroad cars would have some difficult temperature issues.

I’d love an outbuilding like that green house. :+1:

I’m guessing it’s a reference to him being pretty good with a .410.
