be able to support 8 plants in a closet?


definitely not. Might be enough for a couple days but will need about 100w per plant eventually because if you leave them with 90w they wont grow. For 8 plants maybe 2 of those LED's + 400w HID(minimum) or lots of cfls.

Nope. A 90W UFO produces nowhere near the results of a 400W HPS as they claim. I've heard that some 300W LED units produce results like a 400W, which makes a lot more sense.

its a 90wat quadband. and you dont need 100wats per plant with LED cuss the whole system its self is only 90wats and i know they can support more then one plant at once.

and its the industrial version which is unlike most ppl and it says it is equivalent to a 600w hps

I've grown with the 90W UFO. You can grow 1 plant by itself. They tend to work very well in veg... they keep the plants real short and they branch out nice. I don't recommend them for flowering alone... use some 2700K CFLs to suppliment and your buds will be denser.

I am using a 126w Hydro Grow and it is just enough for 2 plants. I am also using 2 CFL's so I would have to say no way Jose.

im not saying eight but it can do better then one;)
and im juss saying their is a difference between industrial and normal version, hence why its also a quad band and not a only a triband. and yes the output is larger and lights last up to 10years instead of 7 or watever it is.

thanks tho:smoking:

Yeah like 2. Still not enough for 2 plants imo but you could get by. Also they are worthless in flowering unless you have something to supplement them. I wouldnt ever waste my money personlly but do what you want. And I call BS on them being equivalent to a 600w hps.

Now personally I go for quality and I only use 4 plants under 1000W hps and 1 plant under my 400w with great success.

this is just one of the many comparison videos you can find on youtube.
I recommend 2 UFO's for every 3 plants minimum, based alone off of what I've seen and read.

VERY INTERESTING DEBATE BUT IF I CAN BUD N :smoke:LOL YOU SAID YOU AVERAGE 2.5 WITH A 400 WATT HPS AND THE 90 WATT GAVE YOU 1.5 RIGHT? SO 2 90 WATTERS SHOULD GIVE YOU DOUBLE 1.5 WHICH IS 3.0 RIGHT? SO WITH 180 WATTS OF LED YOU ARE NOW GETTING .5 MORE BUD THAN WITH A 400HPS OR A TIE
THIS PROVES THAT ALTHOUGH THEY ARE NOT GREAT WITH JUST 1, IF YOU DOUBLE UP YOU WILL STILL CONSUME 220WATTS LESS ELECTRICITY AND YOUR YIELD WOULD BE COMPARABLE TO 400HPS NO? NOT TO MENTION THAT MORE OF THAT ENERGY IS BEING USED FOR THE PLANT BECAUSE THE LIGHT IN A HPS DOESNT RECIEVE 100% OF THAT WATTAGE.
NOW THIS IS NOT TO SAY THAT HID LIGHTS ARE TRASH BY NO MEANS, BUT THERE CAN BE NO ARGUMENT THAT LEDS ARE THE FUTURE, AS WE START TO REALIZE THAT WE NEED TO PROTECT AND SAVE OUR EARTH WE SHOULD ALL BE MOVING IN A MORE GREEN DIRECTION AND THESE LIGHTS REPRESENT THAT MOVEMENT, LESS HEAT, LESS WATTAGE, AND LESS WASTE

OH AND THATS A GREAT SPECIMEN BRO, CONGRATZ U SIR HAVE SKILLZ
