    Default First grow, HELP ME!

    So the light I previously purchased to begin a grow is severely underpowered. Does anyone know if a Bloomspect 1200 watt light from Amazon will be enough? Won't allow me to post the link. I'd only be growing one auto flower. I'm on a very limited budget and this fits within it. Will this be enough for one MAYBE two auto flowers? Thanks everyone.

    How do you tell if it's old tech? Trying to educate myself on leds and don't want to spend time
    reading on old stuff when there's enough to read already. (and reread over and over) LOL

    Sorry for the hijack

    Gen 1: 1/3/5/"10" watt discrete emitters. Look like you could build one with a soldering iron. 1 watt isnt much. Mars Hydro Viparspectra etc.

    Gen 2: Surface mount / SMD components, the efficiency bit better but wasnt there. Early cobs. 1w is on par with hps.

    Gen 3 onwards: Quantum boards and efficacy over 2umol per watt. Cree, Citizen and Illuminus Cobs for example. 1w worth 1.5-2w hps.
