Found this pic here in an old thread. An oil lamp glass converted cool tube, with a 70 watt CMH. Sounds about perfect for a few square feet of space!

I'm wondering if there are any commercial or home appliances which fit the bill? Something with a high volume of production, so the price is much lower. Great or even decent LED's at a very low price.


Has anyone worked with LED display lighting for micro grows? What other industry uses lights like display lighting, and what LED offerings have cropped up.

I've been thinking about this as well and there are bunch of guys on here who are getting really good results with mini CMHs.
On the German sub forum... growing pure sativas under 70W&35W CMHs. Was quite impressive.
I turned towards LEDs as the heat and breaking threat of the CMHs was a concern for me as I'm frequently leaving my plants alone for 2weeks+

Those guys however never seemed to have problems.

Curtis,
I can only recommend the 7-in-1 bulb holder as an efficient yet cheap solution.
I've also gone from red&blue to white full spectrum, results really are better imho.
Those quantum thingies look real good too.

Thank you, I may end up going with a fixture. I too would choose the CMH if it wasn't heat and danger issues. lol

I'm having real good luck with a combination of Warm (2700K) and Cool (5000K) $1, 9 watt bulbs from Walmart.

Bought a 200 watt "Dominator" with 6 COB assemblies. Puts out lots of purple-ish light that completely screws up the light sensors on a smart-phone. Not that that's bad, just to describe it.

In the process of side-lining the Dominator and building some fixtures with 20+ sockets for the $1 bulbs.

Of course, will keep the Dominator and see how it works during Cannabis flowering.

I've had great success with SolStrips. I've built three or four of these lights for myself and family. They aren't that difficult to DIY if you buy the pre-drilled and tapped heat sinks. They use the Samsung LM561C diodes, the strips run 24-volts and up to 2-amps.

Here is a 360-watt (dimmable) version that I use in a 30"x30"x30" grow space. It has six 2700K strips on a 240-watt driver and three 4000K on a 120-watt driver. This allows me to adjust not only intensity, but also spectrum.

Wow... not exactly off-the-shelf, but definitely pretty. Nice neat job you did there as well, congrats and thank you.

One of my cabs is built for the 7 socket splitter. I drilled a hole for the hub in the top, so the actual socket the splitter screws into is on top of the cab. This gained me 4 -6 inches of interior headroom and is also a big help with heat dissipation. It also makes supporting the splitter a breeze, as the arms rest against the ceiling of the cab. An added bonus is that the now gently heated top of the cab is a great place to sprout seeds.

I can't remember which one offhand, but one of the standard hole-saw sizes is a perfect match to the central hub of the 7 socket splitter.
