Any Display or Other Off-The-Shelf L.E.D. Lights for Micro-Grows?

I'm looking for a lighting solution which can be placed in a 24"-36" high type micro-cabinet. Are there any lighting solutions for displays using flowering quality L.E.D. solutions?

Something you can purchase off the shelf and plug in with low/no hassle. Thanks ever so much for any useful input.

I want to help but have such poor luck with single lights close to plants. At close range the square of the distance loss of intensity in a 120 degree beam really screws up the light hitting the plant.
A plant six inches away grows three inches and suddenly the top is getting four times the intensity, not good.

A set of four par 38 screw in LED spotlights, one in each corner would keep the light intensity even over the whole plant, allowing more height without burning the cola. The lights in the photo have had colas right up in between them, safely.
This is no longer just plug and play, but close, more plugs.

I'm using three of these panels, although with a different driver. Mine are 4000K, used for veg, and I'm really happy with them. More efficiency and better spectrum compared to blurple light. You can't really go wrong with HLGs products.

Those HLG-65's look nice, I just ordered one recently to supplement my 3x3 tent and am really looking forward to trying it out.

For something with a bit higher wattage but similar efficiency/price range, check out these https://solstrip.com/en/12-solsheets, they come in a 150 and 250w models. Not too pricey and really great lights from my limited experience.

Sorry no, this one is copied straight from my browser...
But just search "Bonsai Hero" and it will pop up.
Also feel free to check the "super silent mode" thread in my sig, it uses the 65w Hans Panel, which was the first back then and not as eveolved as they're now, but still got me 80g from 65w in a scrog set-up.
Best,

The Hans panel is supposedly regarded as one of the very best of the previous generation grow LEDs, and it is made with top quality components. But it is still previous gen tech.

HLG and other brands using quality phosphorus-coated white LEDs (COB or SMD) will be more effective, offer a better spectrum, and cost less.


DIY'ers build lights with the best components for under 1usd/watt. Times they are a-changing!

Edit: SolSkins are nice too! LM561C-based boards/strips seems to be taking over for COBs, lots of HLG clones and similar on Alibaba.com these days.

I always wondered about using mini CMH bulbs.. They make them in almost any wattage, like 39 watt for example. Even have little baby 39 watt ballasts to power them. Could even make a mini hood or cool tube to go with it

How about a fixture full of 20-70w bulbs? 600-1000, watts all spread over a nice even scrog canopy. Lower ceilings in mind...
