Lights/Grow/Yield tent issue

Hello everyone,

I'd need your help to solve this problem. Due to lack of experience with CFLs and LEDs.
I'm a HPS fan; unfortunately my old grow tent (120x120x200cm) is too big for my new room.
As I'm the only user of the weed I grow, I'd like to keep on growing, but in a "small-scale". So I decided to set up a small grow tent (60x60x140cm) and leave the HPS world.

As I was mentioning before, I do not need big yields of weed, but do not want to produce 20 grams from a plant :O

In your opinion and experience and due the small grow tent, which yields can I expect from these new lightning systems?


Grow space: 60x60x140cm

Plants: 1/2 fem, photo

Substrate: coco coir + 30% perlite

Fert: Advanced Nutrients Sensi Grow Coco (A+B)

Light OPTION 1: 1 SONLIGHT PAR38 GROW LED BOOSTER 36W + 1 SONLIGHT PAR38 BLOOM LED BOOSTER 36 W (used togheter; tot. 72W)

These lights consume 13 W and 36 W is their output (tot. 72W). They give 1920 lumen each (tot. 3840 lumen). They cost 65 Euros each (something like 55 dollars). Seem a bit expensive if you compare their prices with some LEDs sold on Amazon (as Bloomspect 300W and Viparspectra Reflector Series 300W, both for 70 Euros each...)...Maybe they are not solid and that's maybe why growshops throughout Europe do not sell these items as Bloomspect (?).

Light OPTION 2: 2x CFL 45 W (tot. 90 W)

Hope you can help me Thanks very much

Hey bro I don't really have anything helpful, but https://www.icmag.com/ic/forumdisplay.php?f=65545 is the sub-forum for microgrows and there are some beautiful cabinets in there with people running screw in lights even. I highly recommend this thread https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?t=314806 for anybody looking into micro grows. He's just using off the shelf screw in lights and those octopus light adapter things that let you plug a bunch of lights into 1 socket. It has almost too much information, but hopefully it steers you to making the best decision for your situation.

You can use a 150W HPS in that tent, if you keep the plants small enough.

Yeah bro, briefly considered it. Then abandoned the idea, because of the heat-related consequences. Have you done it before?

Honestly, that side of "cool" lights as LED has been fascinating me. On the other side, I admit that this part of market is quite a mess if you don't know any personal opinion about a specific model of LEDs.

Thanks for sharing your opinion, I'll think of it some days more.

Yes it's perfect for the area. A 150W lamp won't get hot like a 400W. Only the height seems to be too small for getting a lamp and filter inside. But you can workaround it with an extra box for the filter on top of it or maybe put the the filter outside the box and use it blowing and not sucking, well...maybe...Or just using plants with less stretch.
