I want to buy grow lights for my 4x8 grow tent, I Started with energy savers, went to HID for better and cost efficient grow, but a lot of mistakes in my last grow, plus in my starting of flowering time one of my 1000 watt HIDs Ballast froze, i did what i could added two 300 watt led flood lights, but werent looking good , and one of them isnt working anymore, i realize it is very important to have good and trustworthy lights, thats why i am thinking about spider farmer se 1000, what do you guys think? Many THANKS
As you can see Rocket everyone has their own light preferences and they are all the best. I am sure as long as it fills the general outline of the lights we all use, you'll be fine. Go for the best you can afford. You won't be disappointed. Remember the best isn't always expensive. Look at results. What plants look like under what lights. Usually there are photos of finished plants and the lights they grow under.
Me? I would find out what pipes uses and go with that.
2 will be more expensive, since se 1000 is for 4x4 with co2, other wise all others are saying their 800 watt is good for 5x5, since i think spider is better than mars or any other, 1000 watt should do the trick, plus i have an ac inside the tent, on wooden stand it takes 2 foot atleast, and anything under or very close is definitely dying , killed 2,
a lot of growers say get the best light U can afford so i did finally [on a fixed n come] plus mama said i could now after thinking bout it i can say i hope i can grow 2 the full potential of these lights i will consider myself a very good grower and that is what i would like 2 b there r so many great growers here great place 2 learn all ways something go on !!!! my 2 cent ..
