First timer! Need some help.

Hello everyone!

I have a walk in closet that I would like to use as a grow and Im wondering what Lights its needed beacuse im pretty lost after all reviews and stuff

Its 2x2M and I have no idea what Lights it needs for this space. Im all in for LED and currently looking at mars reflector 192 but im not sure it would cover the whole area and what ive read it gives around 220+-0 ish Grams? Waste of money here? I would love to try out CREE or quantum boards but then I have to order from NA?

My light budget is around 600€
Im from EU also if that matters.

Or two 400-600s to have better coverage. Heck, you could even use 4 250s for even better coverage.

True but are you talking about HPS lights?

with more light, you will also have more heat; what kind of ventilation do you have in place?
are you going to be starting from seeds, or would you also like to set up a veg/ clone area?
how experienced are you growing plants like this?
it sounds like you have a nice space, man and i hope you enjoy every minute in the garden!

I’d say hps for that size space. 2x 600, and some good airflow. I would say that though, I use hps myself!
Good luck whatever you choose

For a closet grow, I would do LED's. You won't have 1/10th the problem with heat/ventilation that you would with HPS set up. jmo


Lots of LED's out there. I use one Viparspectra 450 in a space similar to yours with great success. EDIT**- I re-read your original post. If you really have 6X6 foot space, you would need more light than a Viparspectra 450 could provide.


Remember this- There IS such a thing as too much light.


Good luck!
