Dear 420magazine community,
After quite some time away and contemplating a lighting solution I'm stuck with a lighting solution I should choose.
Looking for pro's and con's of the following lighting solutions.
Manufacturer LED grow lights (Black dog, Mars hydro, California lightworks ect)...
I am going to build an LED fixture consisting of 5w chips.
These 5w chips contain 2x2 45mil diodes.
Each one of these diodes, if packaged individually, are sold as 3w chips because they are rated at 700mA (3.4v X 700 = 2.4w).
In a 5w (2x2) package, they are also rated at 700mA...

I used to post here but haven't in quite some time. I have seen lives saved, including family members, by cannabis and its derivatives. For the past 12 years, I have dedicated what little brainpower I have left to research and development of cannabis (and now hemp) lighting. I am really...
First time using HID lighting. Just picked up a reflector, 600w MH lamp, and Apollo 600 ballast to replace my T5 setup.
Hooked it all up, fired the light with no issue.
On closer inspection, the ballast (model # uhps-d600) doesnt specifically say it can run MH lamps.
Ballast is making a high...
Dear 420 magazine,
Looking to get the most out of the plants that'll be going inside my 5x5 grow tent but I'm stuck on how many LED's I should place within the grow tent.
I have a relatively decent background in growing but with this new LED light technology I thought I'd give a try there's...
I am a beginner grower working on a small closet grow. I received some trimmings from a friend which have been under the dome for a week now. My main concern is in the lighting. I'm not sure if it's sufficient lighting and if it is how long until I will need to upgrade? I have 8 clones which...
New grower here.
Just a bit of history. I have been using cannabis medically for a year, best method I have found is by making my own cannacaps. (Coconut oil infused weed in 00 size capsules)
For economic as well as consistency reasons I have decided to grow my own.
I live in rural southern...
How should I invest for lighting? I have $500 I want to spend. LED or T8 grow? For 12 plants in a closet. Nu Bee old man. :thanks: Want to grow the best genetics I am able to. Recommended brands for lights? What do you think of DIY for LED lights? Thank you for your input.

Hi Guys, newby here, I'm setting up a 1m x2m x1.8 tent I will be having 6 plants in it and not sure what type of lighting to go for, I've read that much about lighting that my head is spinning. I'd prefer to use something that is economical if possible but will go with your recommendations...
Not sure what happened...guessing it was a lighting issue?
24 hours of light during the vegetative stage...sun during the day and fluorescent lighting at night.
Flowering for 55 days.
When harvest time came around the nugs were thick/dense. But after drying and curing
I ended up with airy...
I have worked in the outdoor lighting industry for over 20 years and it's the slow time of the year for lighting suppliers / distributors. Add in the fact that most of the manufacturers are phasing out 'last years' lights for new and improved ones.
I'm not saying this is a certainty but I...
