Flowering Lights recommendations

I’m preparing to invest in a flowering tent and I want to up my game to 3 plants perpetual grow, as well as using my current set up for Veg and to keep a Mother.

For a 6x2x6 - would 900W be overkill?

I want to push for 3-5 z per plant.

So figure 35watts per sqft for LED (True watts) 12 x 35 = 420 true watts
50w per sqft for HPS 12 x 50 = 600 watts for HPS


I run LEDs at 35w/sq foot now - want to move up to 50 or greater

Wondering about foot print - would a 900W cover 6x2 well or would two very powerful
450s be better for this linear set up ?

High yielding LED growers, what do you use?

Or 3-200w LED one for each plant. What do you have now?

Right now I’m running 2 300W LED one per plant , true watt coverage is 35 W ft sq - this space is going to be used to veg now.

The new flowering tent will also be linear and will basically keep each plant in a 2x2 dedicated space but I’m increasing height by 1 foot so I can flower taller plants.

I can do the math, thanks :sunglasses:I’m really looking for recommendations for work horse LEDs that are tuned for flowering and that will give me the 50W min sq foot I desire and come in around $200-300 for lighting.

That maybe a stretch. Would love to know what others are using. I’d like to get the optimal yeild per plant - not SOG or SCROG grower, soil medium

Thanks in advance :heart_eyes:


I ran 1200w led in a 6ft tent and it was too much for my girls. 900 maybe just right. I copped mine off amazon not sure of the brand though.

I would get 2 450w LEDs for your flower tent, maybe even throw an extra 300w LED in there too. I’m running 2 300w LEDs in my 5x5 flower tent right now but I’m buying a 450w LED to throw in there for more light!

I’m whit @ktreez420… I’m using a 450w meizhi on a 2x2x5 grow box. @yoshi told me this… Meizhi is good for flowering stage and Viparspectra is good for veg stage…
I’m very satisfied with my led light!

It works great for what it cost ?

If you ask me @yoshi… Definitely it’s a good light :joy:
