    Advice on LED light upgrade

    Hi, This is my first grow and initially looking on light wattage found this led lamp which sounded OK for my grow area (it seemed to be a sort of viparspectra clone) My thinking was: I have a 80x80X160cm - more or less 0.64 square meters / 7 square foot. calculating between 50-70w per sq feet...

    Please help me understand this umol's/par

    As you can see from the lower leaves, something is amiss! This is my first grow so I'm not totally sure but I think it's nutrient burn and I should flush the soil with water, would love to hear a second opinion on it! There is a little heat stress on the top leaves from where the...

    Is doubling wattage from 600w to 1200w for flower a good idea?

    I'm currently running a 600w (equivalent) LED grow light in my 4'x4' tent. They're growing great but it's a relatively small light and probably only gets good light concentration to about 2'x2' of the canopy from a height of 24". I was thinking about buying another 600w light to get full canopy...
