Hello AFN and anyone interested in the Mars 300 series.
Let me begin by saying that I have never grown my own medicine until recently. After reading as much as I could from AFN and other resources, I set about getting what I needed for my first grow ever.
Either you prepare for success or you plan for failure. My biggest constraint was of course, money. So i was looking for the best Bang for my buck. Most of the lights I wanted were out of my price range. I happened upon a 2 pack of Mars hydro 300's off ebay for $138.00 with free shipping. Each 300 used 140 watts of power. I figured hey, I can use these for one grow and upgrade.
My setup is a 30inch by 30 inch tent that is 6 ft tall. Both lights in this tent were a perfect fit and coverage. Not once did the lights cause a heat issue.
With 4 seeds and my tent setup i began my journey. So far, I have harvested 2 plants and still have 2 growing.I am still technically on my first grow.
Originally I thought that I would replace these lights. But now I realize that they are perfect for my needs. I could not be happier with them. My plants thrived under them. Of course i found out that i needed to use cal mag which is standard for all led grows. No other defeciencies were a result of the light. My plants would have been bigger but I made several mistakes with nutes and ph. The lights out performed my expectations.Customer service was a 5 out of 5.
For anyone that is looking for a good light at a reasonable price, you cant go wrong with Mars hydro. The 300 was part of their original series so anything after that can only get better.

Thanks Marshydro and have a great day AFN!
