Today marks the end of week 2 since 12/12 switch. My question is are these LEDs (19w full spectrum) I have mounted on each side of the tent beneficial or are they just taking up room? Main light is a vipar spectra 300w (136w) blurple. Tent is 2’x2’x4’
Every watt you can get the better. I have one under a 1500watt cob and a small qb for side lighting.
yes, they do help,
u still lack a bit of light for Blurples, 174 actual watts,
200w - 240w of Blurple would be good in a 2x2,
use what u have for a grow or 2 while saving up for better lighting.!
135w of QB would be great in your 2x2.!!
When I started I was under the impression of 100w per plant so that’s why I went with that one. I do have a 135w qb v2 on the way scheduled for arrival on 2/5. But I’m going to finish this grow on the blurple. I started with 5 WW fem seeds and this is seed 1. Seed 2 will be on the qb so I can compare results.
with another 2x2.5 area u can start a perpetual grow.!
that Viper Spectra 300 would do good for a momma/veg room.!!
As a test. I would turn all lights off and just leave the tube LED on and see where the light is directed… the light itself wouldn’t be a waste but where it’s pointed would be.
Not much use pointing to the other side of the tent.
Youtube “Migro par testing”
I built a “closet” behind my gas fireplace originally for a gun closet but had room for a 2x2 tent. No more room in there but I do have a 12’x 4’ shed that I’m looking to convert to a small grow room. Nothing large, just big enough to keep the wife stocked up on bud.
Thats very very cool!
Ok… see the pic above. 0 PAR levels on outer edges. Not the same light but just grasp the principles of lighting and youll make better use of them…
“Full Sun Plant” not “Part Shade Plant”
And i understsnd its supplement lighting but you might as well get the most out them since you have them.
Oh, I gotcha. Some reason I missed the last half of your original post. So aim them at the ground instead of opposing walls.
Watch a few migro videos if you can, he offers a good understanding and hes 100% genuine. Im more of a visual person so videos are great.
