LED Grow Closet. Help Needed.

Discussion in 'Lighting' started by Emtron, Aug 2, 2011.

  1. Hey, I'm just about to set up a grow room for flowering and wanted some advice on LED grow lights because that's what I plan to use and have no clue about them.

    There is one particular panel I'm looking at, for a very cheap price, so I could buy a few if necessary. Here are it's specifications..

    Thermoplastic Circuitry board material
    225 LEDs = 165 Red + 60 Blue Mix
    LED Bulbs Size: Diameter: 5mm
    LED Bulbs Power: Power: 13.8W
    Blue Light Wavelength: 460-465 nm
    Red Light Wavelength: 650-655 nm
    Lumen: Red: 7.2Lux x 165Bulbs/ Blue: 4.5Lux x 60Bulbs
    Voltage: 240V AC
    Size: 30.5cm x 30.5cm x 3cm

    Would this go well in a 65x55x160cm grow room?
    And how many would i need?
    I'm thinking i'll use the sea of green technique as i have 30 seedlings at the moment.. Of course, not all will be females, so there won't be that many in the closet.

    Any help appreciated, Thanks!!

    I keep answering the same questions over and over. Search function anyone?


    The 225 leds have a very low power to luminous flux conversion. Doesn't matter how cheap they are or how many you buy.

    The 45 and 50 watt panels have decent luminous flux, but poor heat management and badly designed LED drivers that will burn out.
  3. I have searched a lot on this site.. I just need to know about this specific panel.
    I plan to grow in a smallish space..
    20x25x60inch Closet..
    I'm hoping for a positive answer :p

    Thanks :)
