Where I to estimate my yealds with HPS, on the same sq ft floor area.
I would hang a 400W in each side, as it's not a 22ft light grit. And multiply with 0.8, as a avarage gpw.
This way I estimate I'll have 45 sq ft light grit, along with min 2" space for air circulation, all around the plants and canopy(s).
With 2 ft of head space, there shouldn't be need for that deep a pennetration. To form a solid frosty canopy, with some dence and tasty looking nugs.
It's a gamble I guess, but from the test I have done with the cheap china LED strips. I have been getting the same yealds as HPS, and tho the buds are smaller and maybe not as "impressive" looking as the HPS buds. A gram of the LED grown weed, will get me just as stoned as a gram of my HPS weed.
And once I have grinded up my weed, I can no longer tell the difference.
I keep reading and seeping pictures, from ppl getting 1.2-1.7 gpw with the Samsumg LED chips. But at this point, I don't even care that much. Even if I will only get the same gpw, as I do with HPS.
Im able to minimum double, maybe triple my grow area.
