Mars Hydro has a lot of smart people making there lights. It's hard to not buy one since I already like the SP 250s. But I need the best light and deal I can find. I don't have a lot of money but try to put it in the garden!!!

Closer look at some trichomes on sp250 side..

View Image

I noticed the trichomes on the sp250 side get a lil mo amber a lil earlier than under the sf4000. I think this 2 has to do with the uvb in the sp250s. My educated guess from this side by side is that the sf4000 will yield more and the sp250s will be slightly higher quality. The addition of the uvb makes for slighly more resin, but since we have both sides on equal wattage the percent of the light that is uvb is the same percent more that the sf4000 side will be putting into bulk. While substituting a lil quality for quantity may seem like the way to go, my research tells me that uvb isnt needed for the whole flowering cycle or whole lights on, so it might be more efficient to get separate uvb bulbs to run for 2 hour intervals during only the last 2 weeks of flower and produce higher quality without loosing quantity. Of course this takes away from the ease of a single light producing these results, if I were a light manufacturer I would try to come up with uvb diodes with independent controller/timer that can be switched on only during the needed time to save power and produce optimum results. That said both these lights are doin better than I thought and I dont see myself ever going back to hps lighting. .

Anyway thats my 7 week assessment, will see how this finishes out, they are on a diet of bat guano n a lil chitosan for for the next week then a week of straight water.

Heres a good thread on some uvb, a lot of bs in it too and opinions but some good info too for anyone interested.

Mars and Smart people is an oxymoron, unless you mean they have been smart enough to sell lots of crap lights to unsuspecting/ignorant customers

Example of how smart they are NOT: They are using what is essentially a baking pan (useless sides) as almost 100% of leds fire directly at the canopy, what little light that spreads beyond the perimeter edges is inconsequential

Yeah I am also getting 2x SP3000/ Main reason is the addition of extra red and blue, which I already had been doing with my sf4000 because for some reason my plants freak out if i don't supplement with red and blue. The yellowing and light stress goes away with extra red and blue. And of course cool that it also includes uv.

Sometime in the near future I wanna get a 40ft storage container and turn it into a grow. Was thinking 10 2x4 tables for flower, 4 for veg, and an entryway for nutrients and maybe reservoirs. Was thinkin 10 sp3000s would the way to go for the flower portion, thatd be 3000w flower, could prolly harvest a good 6 lbs a run.
Anyway heres a lil concept visualization...
