      I personally would've looked into viparspectra. They are reasonably priced and guys and gals are having huge success with them.

      Don't expect a killer yield with your light.

    Actual power consumption is 150w from the wall. Is that really 1000w led?

    Should get at least 3 good plants.

    You will need at least 35 watts per square foot, or at least i think that is right. You will need at least 280 actual watts. I would not be happy with the height either, but you can find lights that will work. I always use too much light for my grow space, but my plants never complain about it. PEace

      So you think the 150 actual Watts I have already I should get an additional one ? To be around 300 actual watts ?

    The type of light you choose is personal choice.. You need a minimum of 35 true watts per sq/ft upwards to 65 watts per sq/ft of floor grow space.........https://growace.com/blog/how-many-grow-lights-do-your-plants-need/
