Another light ?

  • Well, we're still working on things and I imagine we'll see some bugs, some breaking, and things that need to get fixed. We'll start on the most critical things first and work our way down. We're still installing add-on's and squaring away some licensing stuff, but feel free to browse the board and we'll update everyone on when things are added, restored, or otherwise changed.

whatever I can get
I have the Mars 2x4 tent that I got the Mars Eco 120 (220w) light with.
Afet much reading after the fact, it seems that this light may be a little
marginal as far as bloom is concerned for the size tent is concerned,
if I want to run the tent at it's full capacity, to get the highest yield.
I was thinking about just adding another Eco 60 (110w)
maybe the Sp150, and then maybe down the road, adding another Sp150
if that isn't too much.
Anyone have any thoughts ?

8 sq ft figure 25-30 Watts (@ the wall) per square foot. So roughly 200 to 250w draw should cover that space for flower.

These figures are COB & quantum board figures. Not viparspectra type [HASHTAG]#s[/HASHTAG].

the mars pulls 220w from the wall, but it's LEd not COB, quantum board ? I'm brand spanking new here, does that mean I need to change something ?

Mars has a decent following, but am guessing they are advertising the total of the watts that the diodes are rated at (ie 30 diodes rated at 10w each is a 300w unit).
Personally am not a fan of active cooling lights, more wattage draw and more to fail.

The quantum board below would fit the need, kit from horticulture lighting group.

These are standard passive cooling cobs from cobshop, also a good choice.
Personally I run 450w of cobs like below in a 4x4.

SP150 would be great. it can cover the 2x2 grow area. it's enough to use for a sidelight.

I was kinda leaning that way, (or the ts1000) but with the sp150, I could get another later, and add that to the 2x4 and use the eco120 in another tent to get seeds going
and have more of a perpetual grow maybe ??
