    HELP! Suggestions?

    Hey Everyone,

    Just wondering how you would suggest setting up a 3x3 grow tents lights?

    Originally I was thinking just one 1500watt cob LED by Hollandstar... but I can’t find many reviews other than amazon and I want to make sure I have full coverage of the entire tent so...

    After a bit more research, I’m now considering 2 600 watt lights by either Phlizon or HiGrow...

    or 2 600 watt LED with cob reflector series by Aglex...

    or 2 1000 watt king plus LED’s but not sure if that’s too much for a 3x3?

    Choosing lights is more overwhelming than I thought and hard when you can’t find many reviews on the “cheaper” lights.

    What would you do? First hand experience with any such lights would be appreciated!

    Hey HGN, if you're gonna get serious about growing a 315 LEC in a 3x3 will grow the shit outta some weed. You get what you what you pay for.


      I have to agree with primo stay away from that cheap LED crap.

          I love mine! Are you planning to use yours for your seedlings, or are you going with something smaller?

          i have them under a cfl setup right now. once they get some roots i'll transplant them into that tent. I cant wait to see how it works!

        Optic 4 gen 3 Led is real nice!
        Rapid LED DIY kits are real nice as well

          Thanks for the input. My goal is to start with some LED lights and as I start getting the hang out things in a couple years upgrade to something more expensive.

          Anyone have experience with the Phlizon 1200w?


            If you buy a china made LED you will most likely have light airy fruits. They are GREAT for veg. but not enough ass end to make good tight fruit. Most likely you will be disappointed with the end result. You will have other things to worry about. TAKE THE LIGHT OUT OF YOUR GROW EQUATION! A lot of things have to go right to make this happened indoors.

                Try some quality LED lights instead of using cheap lights.
