300w CFL or 600w LED?

  1. I am thinking about a very small grow, probably a closet or a PC grow but didnt know which light would be better. I come from the UK, so making heat is not necessarily a bad thing as it does sometimes get quite cold. I will only be growing a few plants in a limited space. The light will also be used throughout the whole grow

    The 300w CFL is a dual spectum, for veg and flower. The LED is listed as 600w, but in the description says "Actual Power: about 100W±5% power, much better than the same product in market"

    Sorry for nooby questions, ive only ever grown outside before so am pretty new to this

  2. That bulb isnt 300 true watts its more on the side of maybe 40-60watts.
    That led light is also very.... sketchy.

    If i were you id burn an extra 10 pounds and grab a mars 300.its all youll need for a pc grow

  3. yeah although I agree that the LED light looks sketchy af, ive seen many growers online using that CFL and saying it is a good light. But would the LED still be the best option if its very close to the plants in a compact grow?
  4. If i were you, and i was growing in a pc case or small cupboard is get a tri splitter. And 3 large cfls.
