    A kind of review of my latest LED light, the Vivaspectra P2500

    I read a recommendation or two, here on the forum. I purchased this model and have had it installed for about three weeks, since 9 September, 2021. I had a crop already flowering and I can postively say, this is the best light I've used yet. It is even better than both my CMH/LEC assemblies. I can't beleive the penetration of the canopy (disclosure, I do defoliate).My Sativa is glistening with trichomes and I still have at least 18 days to go before harvest!

    Couple of beauties you got in there. I'm glad you like your light. I assume you'll see some energy savings from switching to LED. What size foot print does it flower and what does it cost? Looks like a pretty sweet light.

      Thanks! The thing is, I am now utilizing my two other LED assemblies (Mars Hydro), for my vegging side. I'm at only a bit more electricity usage. I paid my electrical bill for September 46.00 for a single story home. Admittedly, I keep my thermostat at 78 degrees F., during the Summer. I started with one 315 Vivosun LEC. That was too unstable with my utilities. My second LEC, Grower's Choice was better but the coverage just wasn't enough. According to the instructions, the flowering footprint is 4.0 X 3.5 Ft (20" above canopy). Vegging Coverage 4.5 X 4.0 Ft., @24" over canopy. I'm too stupid and lazy to worry much about my canopy, at the moment. I'll dial it in when I start flowering the next crop. It cost me just under $200.00 U.S. dollars from amazon.

      Sounds great man. I'd kill for a $46 electric bill. I have a 2 story house with 6 people in it. My bill is rarely under $300.
      I ordered a new light too. I've been patiently waiting...errrrrrrr sort of....lol.... looks like it's coming Tuesday.

      PLreef It's been a fairly hot Summer but my August bill was $64.00. I'm single, have a solar powered garage and my home lighting is all built in LED. The garage would be pulling a constant 13 watts, every little bit counts!

      Thank you. I haven't watered them yet, today, they're a little droopy.

      they look fine, just water them soon, I forgot to water mine a couple of days ago and the top of my plant wilted over, talk about a heart attack.

    I got the same light and i just think it's the bomb diggity. When the tent door is open it shines from the bedroom all the way down the stairs to living room LOL. I really like it and zero noise nothing. I used it on a 1/2grown tent swapped it out like you did BR2K an noticed the best buds i think i've seen on my indoor grow. Just beautiful rock hard.

      Yep I love mine too... Well my P1500 and my P2000. The XS2000 is a killer, my Amnesia Haze autos just adore it. What I like is they are silent.
