I’m a low-budget, low-skill farmer. I have the most basic set-up:
- 400W HPS light
- FoxFarm Ocean Forest Soil
- ILGM autoflower seeds
- Small 3x2 (3x3) area in the basement
I was thinking of “upgrading” a little bit. First, I thought of purchasing an LED light, but after getting some advice and seeing prices for something quality, I’m now wondering about just getting a better HPS.
Do you think going from 400W to 600W or 1000W HPS would make much of a difference in my grow? (Do I need a 1000W in a 3x3 space or would 600W be enough?)
If yes, does anyone have a recommendation for a good HPS, preferably something available on Amazon?
I saw a nice Vivosun 1000W set-up, but one of the recent reviews said that it caught on fire unexpectedly!
I also thought I’d buy some reflective Mylar, since I don’t have and can’t afford a tent.
Thanks in advance for any and all help!
