Second light or No?

  1. I am currently growing in a 4x4 tent. I have a 1200 watt LED (red and Blue spectrum) and a 1000 watt full spectrum LED. I have 2 cropped sativas and getting bushier by the day. I will be taking the 1000 watt light out shortly to use for veg room and I was wondering if it is worth it to use 2 1200 watt LED's for the 2 plants. Or do you think I would have a good dense yield with just 1 1200 watt? Eventually I will put 2 lights if I decide to do more than 2 plants, but I dont want to if I dont need to.
  2. I would personally say yes I had 2 viparspectra lights in a 6 x 4 and was pleased with harvest. I went to 4- 600w viparspectra lights in the same 6 x 4 and it is worth it, all its doubled yeild, more importantly the buds were more dense and bigger. If I had the cash I would add 2 more so i had 6 and stop there.

  3. That's what I was thinking. Im shooting for as dense of buds as I can get. How do you think 2 plants under just the 1200 watt LED would do? I suspect it should still be a good yield and fairly dense. Just dont know if I want to drop the money now or wait.
  4. They will do good under the 1200 vipar, that's what my buddy uses and why I bought vipar. I went with the 600's so I could get better coverage and spread. Also the 2 600' were a little more wattage(power) at the wall by a few watts more and few bucks less as compared to the 1200. I am very pleased with these lights. One day I will be buying quantum boards when I can afford em. The dudes on the site have me sold on em.

  5. Yeah. Im looking toward those eventually too. Maybe I can start my quantum board collection instead of another 1200 watt.
  6. Ya hear ya, I'm 4 lights deep plus a few more in my photo room so I'm gonna use the hell out of em while I save up to buy the proper quantum board set up. I've getting 3-4 z a plant doing 12 at time, lst supercropping then start scrogging couple weeks b 4 flowering. When I get boards I'll swap out my 3 250w leds in my clone/seedling auto tent and throw a couple of the 600's in it. I have to learn more about quantum boards and drivers so I get the prime setup. So I need to talk to someone that know their quantum board and driver game so I know what to get, I can then make my footprint in the room larger up to 6 x 7. Pic is my current photo period room. I do autos in a tent in another room so I can 20/4 on them and hold me over between photo grows.[​IMG]

  7. The other 4 lights u see are 100w each(26w each at wall) 3k leds w 45 degree angle, and a cheap ass 60w(19w at wall)blurple I had hanging around so said fuck throw that in and use it too. So the photo room is 2,860 watts(1,163 true power total). The tent is 750w(336true total power).

  10. You should do fine. This one is under 120w blurple.
  11. Get a big ass hula hoop, attach mylar to it and put it around your lights and plants.
