Hi all please see the attached photo this is 2 * 800 in a 1.2 by 1.2 tent, I have been watching
with regards to check PAR / LUX I don't seem to be able to get above 10000 LUX if I have one light on with regards to plants on the outside.

So the question is am I over powered?
Are my lights to close, I am reaching 45000 LUX in the middle then 10000 on the out plant.

Whilst I want my plants to grow as best as possible and grow

Ahh OK, 120x120cm :)

Now, these lights are not actually 800w, my guesstimate is around 200w draw each.

You'll be able to grow some decent bud under them, but they won't cover your entire space or grow massive buds with maxed potency.
It looks like the plants are turning towards the light which means they want more ;)
It's a good idea to move the plants around so they share the light.

Put a 400w-600w HPS in there along with the LEDs and you're in business :)

Hi Bubb, if the 800w is the real wattage, then you should have enough light, or maybe a little big more during veg; but if you are using the less wattage from wall, then you might add more. You will need 35~50w/sft for led grow light growing. Hope this helps! :green_heart:
