Seeing as I really can’t afford the hlg qb lights and am not an electrician. So my only option is blurp or hps. So would 2 1000w king’s plus LED or 2 vivosun 600w hps lights would be better
I don’t know about HPS, but 2 plants are all you can really flower with 2 burples.
There are some mh/hps guys around that can steer you in the right direction.
If you are willing to spring $300 each for 2 burples then you can buy 2 HLG 260XLs. They will flower a 4x4 really well. Some sellers (Growerslights, for instance) will assemble them for you for an extra ~$20 - 25 I believe. Growerslights has a 10% off same right now.
Skip both hps and LEDs. Get yourself a 630w cmh. It’s good for vegg and flower
What’s the difference between hps and cmh. The look the same almost
Wanting to run 3-4 plants. Probably autoflower. Critical purple from grower choice seeds.
Cmh has a spectrum closer to the sun compared to hps(more yellow) or mh (more blue) I use 3100k
@CoyoteCody bought these. according to specs, 2 of these would work well for 4x4.
I am with @FixerPower on the HLGs. You do not need to be an electrician or engineer to assemble them. I was super hesitant to do it myself, but once I took the plunge with an HLG DIY kit, I didn’t look back. You could build wicked awesome lighting for a 4x4 for about $500 and running about 500W of true power. Here’s a 4-QB132 I built originally for a 2x4 that is now in my 4x4 with a 2-288QB. You can do it!
