So I use spider farmer lights and I have a se5000 480w light. I use it in a 4x4 tent to flower. Now I see a se1000w and the size of bud area goes up to 5x5? mom getting a 10x10 tent and was looking to add some bigger lights but seems like led light do t really come in area coverage that big.
long I know- so do I need to go up in watts (se 480w- se 1000w) to get bigger yield (adding co2) or will more watts just equal more bud? Thanks for the time!
Ty, I’m new to led- used hps mh my whole life and the good old sun. so having a 1000w light in 5x5 area is probably overkill ?! because I could grow a 10x10 spot with a 1000w hps (with the right hood and light blub)
RbtAsq has jumped from HID to LED recently and the LED's he decided on are great lights according the spec's and his results that he doesnt share often enough. I just dropped a bundle on 3 lights to cover a 4 X 8 area and I kind regret not going with 6 SF 1000 watt lights to cover the area.
I like 40+ watts per sq foot and I can go up to 53 if I need it and I have not so far even with co2. I have only used real C02 once and at 1500 ppm with 90° F temps in the room I have foxtails. I used the C02 bags once and had good luck so I added C02 and an auto pilot, I am still on the fence with that.
