    Default Replacing 600w hps

    Hi guys, ironman has very kindly pointed me in your direction as I would like to replace my 600w hps with some "equivalent" LEDs and I believe your IHS 320 may be the ticket? Very much looking forward to giving them a go, what would be the best way of purchasing them and if you are able to pm me a discount code it would be massively appreciated. All the best beabud

    3000k for full cycle is your best option

    Just made my first purchase! Very much looking forward to receiving it. Are there different settings for veg and flower and what height would you recommend keeping them? Thanks once again for your help, very much appreciated

    On the drivers the have a rubber bung, remove the rubber bung and with a small Phillip's screwdriver you can dim them down.

    I recommend buying a plugin watt meter for a tenner off Ebay so you know what settings your on.

    When you get them, you can always PM me and I can give you a few pointers.

    Thanks iron Man, really appreciate the input as always. Thinking of keeping my viparsiectra X2 300 watts over them to flower then chucking the ish320 in on full blast. What do you reckon will it be too much for them. On another note, what height would you keep them, 18 inches?

    I would virtually beg you to do it the other way around and use the IS320 during veg and add the viparspectra's towards the end of flower.

    Did you go for the 3000k set up?

    The spectrum on the IS320 is far better suited to canna than the old school blurple spectrum on the vipaespectra. That being said, there's alot of talk about adding blurple late on in flower to induce higher trichomes production in the later stages.

    Blurple lighting tends to have a bit more UV b and UV c light spectrums, which is what causes the plant some extra stress in late flower, increasing trichome production.

    18 to 24 inches is about right too. The best thing with the IS320 is the dimmable option. This allows you to control the light during veg period much more precisely. Like your veg and bloom setting on your vipraspectras but better lol.

    In a 1.2 x 1.2 I would have the IS320 dimmed down to the minimum setting for the first 3 weeks of an auto, then I'd up it slightly to quarter power for the stretch period. Then a couple of weeks into flower, up it to 3 quarter power, then the last 6 weeks I'd up it to full power and possible add 1 viparspectra for the last few weeks. Obviously this is all depending on how the plants react and tweaking it as you go.

    Trust me, 1 run of vegging under these boards and you wont be disappointed. All I see on the talk is people surprised at how well their plants are vegging under these white lights.

    Awesome advice, thanks ironman ok definitely give that a go. I went with the 3000k as per your recommendation. I don't think my viparspectras had a function for veg and bloom they just have on and off . They did me well in the veg stage on my last grow but lacked the red spectrum fir the flower phase so I chucked in the hps for that but didn't the dinner battling temps which I'm not keen to do again. If I get anywhere near the 16oz from 2 plants I got on my last grow I'll be a very happy man. Il definitely do as you've said and swap them over once they arrive so thank you for that and if I've got time and temps permitting I'll chuck in the vipar spectras at the end.

    That's the way to go mate. Get a watt meter though, worth the tenner. You can save that in electricity by knowing what your set to lol.

    As your in a tent you can set the drivers on the outside of the tent, that will drop temps a lot, straight away. You will need to wire this up too, if you need a hand with that when it arrives, give me a shout. It's not difficult but I know what it's like with a new toy lol.

    You're one of Mackys graduates, I cant guarantee 12 oz but I can guarantee stinky, quality bud. You'll be fine my friend.

    It all depends on what your driver can do. I have the IS250w, the minimum setting on that was 95watts. That's what I started on.

    When you get it sorted turn it down and see how low it goes. It will go above 320w as well, I dont recommend that though lol.
