Removed started grow question 3 years ago
Hello fellow growers! Having never grown with Leds, this is my first time (MarsHydro 300w) and I have 2 questions:

1. Have you used this light, If so, what's your opinion on it?
2. Which Led light would you recommend (bang for the buck) for a 80*80*135cm grow room?

Thank you!

when i won grower of the month the mars hydro people contacted me to ask if I would prefer a sweater or a light and i took the sweater. it's a good light for germination maybe, and the seedling stage. Basically now light companies know that it's the average spectrum that matters more than specific spectrums so most new lights are actually white not blurple. Think about it : when you look at the sun is it blurple? beyond that you want to have something like 50W or 30 true watts per sq ft. you have 6.9 aka 7ft so you want something like 300 to 350 true watts, means two mars hydros . Hope this helps ! :rocket:

Hey my friend ! U talk about mars hydro eco ?? it is a good cheap chinese led...not bad in veg...but wich have lacks in far red… and uv

MH is the same manufacturer wich build unit farm...but Unit Farm have Rework their Spectrum and balanced it better…

to my point of view if you don't want to spend too much money try aglex 1200 W (210 watt to the wall) Cob + diodes is the best for me….cob avoid the candela effect of diodes….diodes allows an extra boost for flowering if the ratio is well balanced…

Don't hesitate to take contact with chat dude :+1: hope this helps

This light has real 100W and is good for 60x60 tents. A good light for budget grows. For 80x80 I would recommend something between 160W and 230W. For Example the Mars II 400 LED or 2x Mars Sp-150 LED. I personally use a Pro Emit 200W Cob LED, great Light for about 400€.

I used something like these
platinum 300 same 300w
You Schuld be ok just with one for your small tent

With second one you will get heat problems and to dry air (I tried it out)
