Help Me Design a DIY LED Light

  1. Hey everybody, I am designing my new grow room for my first grow and want to try building my own LED grow light. I don't know much about electronics but I'm a fast learner so I'm sure I'll get it.

    I would like the final product to be on par with the 90w UFO lights, but I want to include more than just 1 red and 1 blue spectrum. Probably 2 Red, 2 Blue, and 1 Orange.

    As for the dimensions I would like to make it 1'x2'.

    So any suggestions for where to buy the leds and parts?

    Also I ready somewhere that 1w LEDs are best for plant growth, any reason why that might be the case?
  2. Wow, thanks thats a pretty good resource. I'm going to do some reading and come up with a design.
