    • How are you measuring PPFD 10 is extremely low? for veg it needs to be between 150-300 and then 600 plus for flower.

        • It would be a good idea. Make sure what ever light you buy has a PPFD map at specific heights and the outer edges of the map show a PPFD of 500-600 and the middle is around 800-1200. Most LED's claim to cover area's larger than they actually do.

          • Get on Amazon. You can pick up a decent light for under a hundred dollars. If you think about how much weed you can grow for that 100 dollars the light will EASILY pay for itself on the first grow. Welcome to the portal!

                • texas bob is correct and i feel bad for him if he's from texas. lol that state looks at weed like its heroin or meth.

                  i'd be a felon if i lived there, and they got the 3 strikes you're out policy.... fuck that place.

                  • В моей стране тоже нельзя выращивать коноплю, поэтому дома очень удобен. У меня самый очень ограниченный бюджет и по этому случаю я собрал лампу сам. Из светодиодных бытовых ламп. У меня ушло 20 ламп на 10-15 Вт. Также немного красного цвета 11Вт. И не уступают тем, которые у нас продают по 200-500$, если утром не бомбят, то пойду домой сделаю фото своего светильника для вас.

                    • Nice Lamp you cobbled there don't see why that wouldn't work out well. Might almost be too bright with the right LEDs!

                      Make sure to insulate it with a good wrap of tape on and around the wiring, the humidity will get to it eventually. Water proof it as best you can and it will last longer and lower your electrical risk

                      • I'm not doing that.I am growing and this makes me happy and completely satisfied. I picked up a spectrum of 2700 to 6500 kelvins, and on my second height I had wonderful bumps.

                        • The second time I grew, grew excellent cones. The first was a trial. Try and you and everything will work out. In fact, we are given a very expensive light, everything is much simpler and cheaper. Do not look at expensive lamps, they are made of the same diodes6th and household lamps. The right spectrum and you will succeed ;)
