Roger.Tests Spider Farmer SF2000

Hello everyone. I recently received a Spider Farmer SF2000 LED designed for a 2’x4’ grow Tent. I also received the tent and I am debating whether or not to use the tent. I am starting a couple ILGM Gelato beans tonight. I plan to grow one in apotforpot kit (watch for similar topic in apotforpot area of the forum.

So; Here is a couple piks of the lighting fixture and accessories.




ENJOY Back in a couple days when seeds pop. :slight_smile:

I am starting one seed in this apotforpot starter cup, and the other in 1.5" rockwoll, as I always do.

The Ethernet cable is meant for linking multiple lights. One dimmer, 2 lights… When you say received (more than once) it sounds like they sent it to you, for free. Did you pay for it, or is this a sponsored run? Just curious. The sf2000 would do better in a 2x3, but can still manage in a 2x4

Here is the tent I received.

Looks pretty nice. I iwll probably set it up and give it a spin.

Spider farmer is actually pretty decent I have a tent and 4-5 of their lights. Again, I’m curious… did you pay for it?? The “received” word makes me think sponsored. Either way. It WILL give you a healthy yield. :sunglasses:

4.5 is exceeding the coverage, but you could flower a couple decent plants.

Exactly my plan. I have not decided for sure, but the 2nd plant is probably going to be a 5g bubbler using Bergman’s Nutrient system

I am not as worried about coverage in a tent as much as if it were just in my room.

Hello @Roger.Tests I have a couple sf2000 and a 4x4 sf tent I later bought a sf7000 (big mistake but a long story) and moved the 2000s into 2 2x4s they’re off brand but decent. I do like the sf people they’ve always been very helpful. They are in the process of upgrading all of their equipment…
Anyway I’m set to watch I have my 🧋🍿

Interesting stuff. Spider Farmer has come a long way with their SF series. They look like decent lights.

Well well. Good to see you here. I am excited about doing a new grow with new equipment. I have only experimented with small LED lights in order to help new growers who were buying them cheaply. This is my 1st LED grow, as I have always used HID.

Seeds were started lastnight, and usually I get sprouts within 2 days using ILGM seeds.

See you all around.

Once again; I must say…I hate tents. :smiley: At least building them. I think this tent will do for the review and testing of products and the simple grow I am going to do.

I set up the tent and now I am dying over a Corona… It is 55" x 28". That is badass for an advertised 2 x 4 tent. Most are smaller. Anyway; This made the space I cleared too tight. I am going to have to rearrange and/or remove 2 storage bins abd my 4x4 tent frame, somewhere else, because I cannot walk past my portable AC unit. Either way. the Spider Farmer 2x4.5" tent is set up. I do like the idea of 4 extra inches. Thart will give the plants more space and airflow in the long tun.

Let me see if I can get you some piks.

I iwll replace these piks once I make more room. These just don’t cut it. Proof that tent is up.

I might add the light tonight, but moving all my stored grow lights and chit’man…might take the wind out of me for the night. 20 years ago I would work all night and still be ready to go. Tasmanian Devil style. Now I can only do that for a couple minutes. :crazy_face:

See Budz LED Comaprison HLG Infinity vs SF2000 Here: Budz LED comparison - HLG Infinity vs. SF2000

He has the light and he is growing under it, it’s not about buying a light or comparing them

Hi there. This is a dedicated review and I was not planning to allow any comments once I start growing.

I would like you to start your own topic using the above posts you made, and/or I can make another topic for you.

Let me know, because your posts cannot stay in this thread.

Nice grow BTW. I appreciate your comparison, but it needs it own home.

So, I managed to hang my SD2000, but I did have an issue and had to fabticate a way to use the hangers by weap Romex aroung the long roof brace. The hangers in the light box were not big enough diameter to fit around the braces or frame pieces.

Piks to follow once I make enough room to move around in the room.

Man this little sucker is bright!!! I never expected it to be so bright I had to keep from looking directly at the LED’s.

2 Gelato seeds. G1 in potforpot.com peat pounder ~ G2 in my FAV’ 1.5" Rockwool cube.

Noticed early yesterday morning: G2 was hsowing.

G1 had not shown yet, but peat and rockwool are different, as in; The seed could be deeper in peat pellet. So; I picked it up to take a good look and saw nothing for a second. Then I dropped the whole thing on the flooe, because the vessel is 2 pieces and I screwed up.

Pause for dramatic effect

Pause for drantic affect.

Look what I uncovered by dropping this big peat sausage on the floor

2 for 2 Love it. UNder the T5’s asap.

Update. Nothing to show, but rockwool G2 popped and is an inch tall.

Still waiting on G2 to raise it’s little head.
