Watts per square foot LEDs

What is the number range? I’ve seen from 20-100w per foot. Just seeing where I’m at in this and does it just stop at 100?
Confused with too much wrong info. Ggggrrrrrr!!!

you can never give it to much light watch you the heat 70 to 85 degrees and good ventilation :relieved:

Lol I got you, breathe easy my friend!

Recommended wattage for LED is 25w per square foot.

Recommended wattage for HID is 50w per square foot.

Hope this helps :v:

Is there too much? With my 9 clf’s it wasn’t heat but lumens that started to fry them. I eventually want 1 more hydro 300w and it would make watts per sq ft 108

I only ask cause my next photoperiods are dr grinspoon, blue dream, moxie viper cookies and Red Leicester. Want lights on point for this grow. 2 are long flower.
