Help a newbie out. Here's my setup:

Discussion in 'Growing Marijuana Indoors' started by LanceBrown, Aug 8, 2017.

  1. Bestva 1800w (cheap-o from China) w Mars Hydro 48''x48''x78' tent. I also have a Mars 700w light, although I don't have a tent for it.

    Right now I'm running 9 plants (veg, approx 1 ft tall) in the tent w the Bestva. 7 gal smart pots w ocean forest + 20% +/- perlite.

    Suggestions? Thanks!
  2. I just had a bestva 1000w I sent it back to Amazon. There is no way or was equivalent to even 400w. I swapped it for 3 mars 300w lol.

  3. no

    Not good to hear! Did you ever test it (par, etc)?
  4. Hi Lance
    How about the true watt of Bestva 1800? The true watt of Mars II 700 is about 270w. basically 30-50w per sq ft are great, so you at least about 480w.
  5. I took a look at it on Amazon, says 340w draw, so probably on the range 700w or less equivalent but not 1800w as bestva advertised. Mine was 180w at the wall and they advertised 1000w lol returned it for my 140 USD back. Grabbed 3 marshydro old tech for less then 200 bucks.[​IMG]

  6. If so looks like Bestva and Mars II 700 are enough for his 4'x4' grow tent.
