  1. Are cheap LEDs a bad idea for growing weed indoors.

    Would these be bad
     
  2. and those will prolly be just fine the cheap ones just dont last as long
    price is corelative with durability/longevity
     
  3. The really cheap lights, like the one you reference, are not what they advertise to be 99% of the time. Most who buy them post about how unhappy they are with them. They are made with the cheapest components and labor and then shipped half way around the world to you. Most don't have the power they claim to and typically don't last very long. My advice would be not to skimp on your lighting...especially for flower, since the size and density of your buds is directly proportional to how much light your plants get in flower. With the LEDs, it's better to save until you can afford a decent one rather than waste money on a super cheap one. TWW

  4. Wtf does that video have to do with the question asked ?

    RE, LEDS you get what you pay for . Do research and find the best you can for your budget.
    You can grow herb under cheap lights I do with mars hydros but I know I could do better if I spent a lot more.

    Hope this helps.
