    Default HPS & LED combined....

    I can be a cocky sod sometimes.... I have an dimable HPS & a 400w LED - dead easy I hear you say...

    ...Well, I've had to remove the reflector I use on the HPS cool tube to reposition it.... & then it hit me... I need another set of ratchet hangers for the LED FFS!

    You'll all have to wait until they get delivered now... what a bloody waste of a day off

    Always the way M_C..always something I forget, Like I purchased a 10-way plug socket extension, completely forgot to check the length of the cable..it was OF COURSE too short by a whisker, so back it goes, new one coming tomorrow!

    Ok cool got confused with the removal of reflectors etc thought this would be hybrid unit. Getting just 1 led in an M_C groom is nice to see

    I have a reflector over my cool tube for maximum effect... but it takes a lot of room... so the cool tube needed to be stripped to basics & repositioned...

    I've done an LED grow before... hopefully, this may work out better

    Hybrids are the current state of the art in commercial grooms in my opinion. I think theres legs in a lowish power hps "sledge hammer" with led high efficiency spectrum tweaks.

    Make me laugh with all these far red (aka heat) strip add ons to led. Might as well add hps ffs.

    Hmmm... now I've found out that both places that would be suitable mounting points are populated by double plugs.... I'm not going to rewire the groom so back to the drawing board...

    The plugs are actually in the way of where I need to mount the LED ratchet straps rather than insufficient plugs... I don't have a lot of space to play with, my depth is only 58cm & as the cool tube won't fit the other way around, I'm a little hamstrung at the moment

    Thought I'd drop my question in here if you don't mind, save creating a thread. I've got my seedlings under a 300w blue spec cfl, now thinking of using led. Don't want to be getting invisible sun or anything just yet, anyone who read the variac wiring thread will understand why lol. So looked at a phlizon, got some good reviews, any recommendations for going led? Not interested in changing to anything other than led. Noob so don't too many more variables than necessary.
