    Default LED Grow Lights

    Im looking at getting a 2x2m grow tent and I wanted to split it into 4 equal quadrants and do 4 scrogs. I have grown in a 1.2x2.4m tent before with 2x600w hps light which gave off a lot of heat. I was thinking 1 LED above each scrog, I was going to make each screen roughlt 80x80cm so I was wondering what wattage leds people would reccomend considering there will be 4 in the tent. I was looking at the VIPARSPECTRA 1200w grow lights but then looking at the reviews some people are saying there isnt enough red for flowering which I dont really understand. If I did get 4 x 1200w leds would this be overkill, like is there a peak to the ammount the plant can absorb an maybe id be better with say 4x600w leds.

    There very expensive but as they dont provide heat are the buds and harvest as good with leds compared to hps?

    Thanks guys

    Have a look at the site sponsor Invisible Sun. Quantum boards are the dogs danglies. Fantastic customer service.

    Vastly superior. I use them and constantly get above a gram a watt. My last girl was 9 zips! That was last week and I chopped what looks like a bigger girl today.

    If you want to play in the reds take a look at the 660/730nm Quantum strips.

    I am running a pair with great results on top of the 265W Quantum board at 3500k.

    Give em an email/call they will set you up.
