Penetration is very good with them and light spread is a lot better than a 600 hps 944

avoid ceramic bulb bases...to much heat 60 watt rated single bulb drop on 14 ga outdoor black wire

96 at 14 watts..1340 watts. max.

of course there are lower wattage bulbs and smaller strings.

ive found a 15 amp runs the pumps lights and a 6in fan with 75 watts to spare.

i used to use in winter 2 light mover 600watt bare bulb...with ac...double bill not as much smell taste and trichome and terp out put for some reason

harbor frieght 12 string..coupon 16.27...20 3 gal buckets 28 dollars...24 net pots 112 dollars...pumps 62 dollars..6 in roickwool 135 dollars...nutes...50...bublbs both 5000 and 2700 k 68 dollars..

around 600 bucks...42 ounces? trim and cured..low balled in socal at 2200 an lb.

knowing a great clone monger is essential if you dont do your own seeds


hmm..gushing...

So after endless research and talking to the two hydro shops I been using for over 16 years and forum members ,,the information about Quantam boards,,, ceramic metal halide,,leds etc
So even a quantum board etc that can put out 600w will be as warm as the equivalent 600w sodium,,,
Now looking at concentrating on a very large humidifier that will bring the humidity up
and let the air con and exhaust look after the temps,,
Pretty sure some will disagree but I wanted 4 leds to replace 4 sodium’s,
all 600w and units must be plug and play,,
main purpose to bring temps down,,
,NO supplemental lighting just a straight 4 unit plug and play swop ,,,,
Not possible I now believe but I stand corrected if proven otherwise,
Thanks for reading ,,,,s2

HLG 550's run around 140-160 degrees from my recording. With four of these heats minimal in comparison with the four 600 watt bulbs I was running.

For the much lower price of one plastic curtain, a second timer, and potentially one more piece of air duct, u could split the room and flip-flop the lights. You've just cut your cooling needs in half.

That’s something I considered much earlier but a busy residential building that’s listed and listed trees also so Gardeners tending to that a few times a week,,,
Ever smelt a moby air con unit that’s ducting out a big indoor run?
No protection like a big old 12 in Rhino filter just a stench of pure unadulterated cannabis that during the day would gets us a visit in about 20 mins lol,,,
Hence,,,lights only runnable at nights,,,
Great bit of practical advice for a newbie though popta ,,,
Cheers s2

That's a tough question to answer.

There's plenty of ppfd etc info out there but not much translation into grams per watt.

I did see 1 guy actually state he gets 12.5 zips of top quality dense buds per fixture when he uses grownorthern telos 0010 and those fittings are 300w each, so that equates to more than 1gpw. He did say he probably could increase his yield with some training though.

@£520 a fitting its quite a high initial outlay but youll never need to buy replacement bulbs.

Peace.
