    1. Myth Busting - Autoflowers Revegging (can autoflowers reveg? Give us your thoughts!)

    Come give us your thoughts; we want to hear from you!
  • We're looking for grower submissions for any autoflowers that they have had tested by a lab or using a home testing device. The idea is to create a grouping of tests that we can use a resource to show growers (both new and experienced) what kind of cannabinoids and terpenes some of the strains we're growing are testing out with!

    Appreciate any help and consideration! Click here for the thread!

So admitedly i may not have done as much research into lighting as needed before jumping to COBs. The Sleek Form Factor and Ease and Control of Positioning Sold me. I purchased the 2 3500k autocog package. My question. Will these 2 cobs be enough to Seed to Harvest 2-4 plants in my 2x4 tent? Down the Road when money isnt as tight ill add more. But for my current circumstances 2 was all i can really afford.
Also just for refrence.

You should be good! I'm a closet grower and got 3 on one side. 1, I use for seedlings (55 watt, first one) then in veg I use the 65 watt(2nd one) and 3rd one is the 2700k bloom light!! Cant go wrong with the Cobs and it'll fit that tent and flower your girls.

anything I can get my hands on!
Two should get you off the ground and grow some plants for you. You will probably want to expand, but grow with this fist, I'm sure you'll be happy.

I think they will be enough for a quality harvest, but one more would be better..

Think you'll be good with 2 autocobs with 2-3 plants in there. Give you a start to seeing what you'll expect. I know I ran 4 autocobs in a 4x4 with 4 plants
and just put in a 5th autocob just for little more added light.

I've been running 2 autocobs in a 2x3 tent for a year now. Best upgrade ever in 15 yrs...You'll be happy with 2 but the 'itis will soon follow.

I have a 2 x 4 with 4 autocobs, and it's a bit too much light.
I need to keep them at least 30 inches away to avoid taco-ing.
Two of them kept closer will probably work fine.

I have a 2'x4' and use to use 3 and was to much, so I went down to 2 with better results. Stay lifted.

How much heat does one of these autocobs put out? I have a 2x2 space. If I hung a couple, would they heat the cabinet up? Currently have a mars 1000, looking for a cooler running option, for when the heat returns to the desert.
