    Hi mate, welcome along

    Know what you mean about lighting... it's a bloody minefield

    Cost wise, CFL is probably the cheapest entry... but will give the poorer results

    HPS is the next cheapest

    LED is the most expensive option to purchase - but running costs are the lowest!

    Like I say, a minefield lol

    Invisible sun have a cracking deal for the ISH150.*140quid and perfect for two autos. States its a replacement for a 300w HPS. Not sure how much they are but if they are cheaper, youll make your money back on the LEDs in no time

    like mc said its a minefield, your best option would be to see what you can source locally and then try find similar online for cheaper, this way if you need bulbs or a new ballast in a flash you can source locally

    as per two autos it completely depends on the size of the groom (grow room) and your power consumption mate, bigger your room the bigger the cost of running lights n extraction etc

    good luck with the grow get a dairy up and we can help you help yourself to some decent herb

    Depends on the K, 3000k or 3500k boards will be good for a full grow. Pop into the sponsors section and go check the website mate. There's a few diaries running them as well if you want to read up Gardo and Ironman help with the Invisble sun section and they are running the boards themselves, they will be up for a Quantum board chat no doubt the Invisble sun guy is super helpful.too

    Full spectrum LEDs so just run them from start to finish.

    No external links here mate but check out this diary. Benson is killing it with the quantum boards.

    http://www.thctalk.com/cannabis-foru...-boards-update

    Dont have to "change" the bulbs for 50000 hours, 5 years and much cheaper to run.

    Those invisible sun boards are really sweet. I'm not in the uk, but there is similar stuff here. I'm happy with my 90 Chinese full spectrum for now, though. Eventually I'll upgrade.
