    Default Led light help

    I am starting my first grow soon and just trying to choose a light i have it down to 2 choices if anyone could help? I have a 3ft by 2ft grow space will be growing autos with some LST. I am trying to choose between the Meizhi 900 or the Aokrean 1000w on Amazon. Can anyone please help, I just want to pop some beans

    Have a look at our site sponsor, Vivid LED. A bit more expensive but definitely worth splashing out

    I would avoid those. Other better LEDs and well worth the increase in price. A poor man pays twice

    Amazon LED's are usually pretty shitty bud,I bought a so called 1000w LED on amazon actual draw is 300w,I use it for early veg then switch to 400w MH,then 600w HPS.
    If you must go LED I would look at some grow diaries Mars seem to have mixed reviews on quality,a lot of guys seem to like the Vivid LED's,check some grow diaries and message some of the guys for the best advice on them.

    Look for Samsung Quantum Boards with Meanwell drivers.
    You want models lm301b or lm301h, you could go 3000k for flower or 3500k for full spectrum.
    3X2 would need one or two qbs. one is good enough i suppose, for a first grow, beware of knock offs. you want the real samsung diodes better get those top bin diodes, usually respected sellers will tell you if its top bin or not. go by rating not by price.

    good luck
