Best Cheap Grow Light

Post by Scott » Wed Feb 14, 2018 11:22 pm

Hi,
Tax time is coming up and I want to get an Led for my grow. Currently I am using a homemade tent with a 600w hps, but I am going to tear it down and go with the tent that I originally bought but never used because I thought it was to small. The tent is 2ft deep by 4 foot wide and about 5 to 5 1/2 feet tall. My t5 fits in it perfect, it takes up the entire width. I have a 4ft 4bulb t5 with 2 switches. Anyway what would be the best Led to purchase for this tent I want to stay around 200? 1 light or two of the small 300's I don't know led's confuse me.
Thanks

You can find 300-450 watt led fixtures for around 70-120 on amazon...mine are knock off Galaxyhydros(300 watt x 2)..a pair of either would be good for that tent, mine is the same size, and im getting 3 oz per plant averages

I will tell you what I have found out about led's in that size cabinet. 1. the light spread sucks you get a nice hot spot in the center and near nothing on the edges. 2. Using 2 lights helps with problem #1 . I have a 2x4 cabinet and I am running a 600 and 450 viparspectra in it ,well I am not real happy with the results after 3 grows now. I just don't think the chinese led's are good enough to replace hps. For example under the hps in the same cabinet I was pulling at least a lb. every 70 days,now I'm lucky to get half that with the same genetics. I'm on a waiting list on the quantum boards so hopefully they will perform as advertised.

They arent good enough mojo I have 4000 supposed watts actual from the wall is like 774 in a 6x8 but I didn't know any better and went by what I read they are junk they don't hold up I've had three of them blow half the board. In my opinion build your own or have someone build it that way it's for your space nd what you want it to do and the quality is what you wanna make it.

I'll go for Viparspectra reflector series 600W LED Grow Light if i'm really tight on budget. Yeah, because I've heard some really nice reviews on this beast. However, any 600W grow light could help for an optimal space as far as they've not sucking the power out of your wall.
However, my last 3 grows i've produced using mars hydro lights and now i'm planning to migrate to maxbloom or bloombeast COB version. Let's hope for the best. :)
