8000k 25w round led lights vs wakyme 600w led grow light (veg mode)

Hi, firts time growing, i have 6 seedlings looking good, the question is, between a 8000k 25w round led light and a wakyme 600w led grow light (veg mode) which can give me better results, I ask why I don’t want to burn the seedlings, the 25-watt one doesn’t heat up at all while the 600-watt one says you have to leave it at least 2.5 ft. the last time i did this the seedlings stretched


If they stretched your light was too far away. Manufacturers suggestions on lights are a little bit like seed banks’ ads for autos… Your mileage may vary.

I would say bring it down until you feel a little bit of warmth on the back of your hand with your hand right above your seedlings, then raise it back up just a little. Make sure you check them regularly at first for signs of light and heat stress.

Don’t be afraid to try variations on the “recommended practices”. Every plant and grow are a little different. Sometimes you’ll find a minor change makes a noticeable difference.


thanks for advice

Do you have another light for flower?

WAKYME light brings three options (veg, bloom and full spectrum) it says to be 600w and my area is 1m x 80cm, is it enough ??

what I have right now is:
-WAkYME led grow light 600w with three modes, veg, bloom and full spectrum.
-x2 kitchen led panel 25w 8000k round

  • led flood light ip65 100w 3000k
  • and I also have 3 HPS lamps 50w each and I would not like to use it because of the light consumption.

My growing area is 1m2, temperature without A/c 27c-28.5c but I have one installed just in case. Average humidity of 75 - 80 without A / C and 55 - 70 with A/c, and I have a deumifier just in case. Right now I have 6 plants in seedling stage 3 royal gorilla (fem) and 3 regular cockie gelato. the question would be which of all these lights do you recommend for each stage … thank you very much
