After growing autoflowers outdoors for 2 years, I am having to transition to growing indoors due to an unscheduled move. I will be buying a 5x5 tent to go into the attic, since that will be the only private and secure space I will have.
My interest is to continue growing autoflowers, 4 at a time, for the variety and lack of light spectrum switching needed with Femanized plants.
This is where I have a question:
I don’t want to invest heavily yet. I want to see what I can do with what I have. The lights I plan to use are 4’ 57 watt full spectrum LED shop lights. They are 4500k each, plan on using 2. I have researched light requirements, most plants thrive between the 4k and 6k spectrum. The benefit of using these lights for autos, to me, seem ideal since I am not needing to switch spectrum for veg and flower.
For s and giggles, I am including pictures of one of the lights on and off. The cover will remain off as to not reduce the intensity of the LEDs. This is in our 10x20 workshop, so the light intensity will be greater in an enclosed space.
Any and all advice or success/failure stories welcomed.
