    Default Newbie question

    Hi,

    I was just asking on the main forum about getting back into growing and of course, arguably, the most important aspect the light. i've been struggling with this and I was originally looking at the Vipaspectra and the KINGBO, however I've been told to look at your products. What would you recommend for a very small scale, 1 maybe 2 AUTO flowering plants at time in a grow tent?

    Thanks

    thanks for your enquiry Radgrower

    ok so depending on the space you are lighting youll prob be fine with either an Ish135 or 150 pro if using a 2ftx2ft space but if your going for a bigger space between 70cm - 90cm go for either the Ish250 or 265 pro

    in you need anymore advice hit us up on enquiry@invisiblesunled.co.uk

    Hey thanks for the reply. Just a bit more clarification if possible. For a tent that is 70x70x160cm I’d probably need to look at the Ish250 or 265pro right? Also I can see in the purchase options different kelvin options - what are the considerations with regards to selecting the right kelvin for my particular grow and tent size?

    Thanks

    ok so yes the 250 or 265 would be great however another option in between you could also look at the ISH170 DIY rig. its a lil more powerful than the ISH135 an 150 pro and a bit larger so it will suit a 70x70 very well.

    if you are looking for full cycle 3000k or 3500k will be very well suited to that, youll find 3500k gives a bit more leaf to flower ratio than the 3000k but there is very little in it .

    Thanks for the reply again. Sorry unless I'm being super thick I can't see a ISH170 DIY - I can see the ISH170 but without the DIY? This is the only one I can see: ISH170 Horticultural lighting Kit powered by Samsung LM301B

    So you reckon this will work well in my tent?

    Hey so can you clear another thing up for me,

    I appreciate the cheaper option you suggested because I am on a tight budget. What is the actual difference between the ISH170 and the ISH250/ISH265 PRO - is it just the efficiency rating that is better with the latter? What makes you suggest that and feel confident it could work for my grow situation?

    Once again thanks for the answer

    hey,

    ok so you currently have a 70cmx70cm space . The ish150 is suited to a 60x60 space the ish250 or 265 covers 90x90 the ish170 gives more light over a bigger area than the the ish150 pro so its a good fit for a 70x70.

    Hey I actually do have one more question. I still haven't bought my tent yet, and I happen to have come across one that is cheaper and slightly bigger: 80x80x180

    Would the ISH170 still be adequate for that space or is the additional hight an an issue here?

    thanks

    i would guess that would be fine,you will have a bit more room for circulation.
    It's nice to be nice.

    What Benson said. The frame has 2 sets of mounting holes. Just spread the boards out as far as they will go

    Okay nice! thanks guys!

    One last question though (I think haha) : Considering the size of my tent + the light you recommended + the fact that i will be growing autos, how many autos do you think/recommend I could grow at the same time? I was thinking 2, maybe 3 at a push.

    If that's an inappropriate question jus let me know haha

    2 would fit easy. I like the idea of having 50-60cm2 per plant. I'm not too experienced tho... And mine live in a tiny tent lol. Will also depend on your pot size. What medium are you growing in and are you thinking of getting a watering system set up or sticking to hand watering?
