    Light for 27"x27"x63" Grow Tent

    Hey all! So I ended up buying a 600W LED grow light, yet it does produce quite a bit of Heat. Even for an LED fixture as I have two 4" inch fans that push 195CFM and it still hits about 77-80F.

    Dual Arc or MH & HPS swap? Please offer advice

    Hi all, I've opted to test the dual arc 600W for an auto flower Blue Amnesia grow. I've noticed a distinct difference between using MH & HPS separately. Since both are situated in 1 globe, you are stuck with a 50/50 split of MH & HPS. Does anyone have a remedy on how to bridge this gap? I...
