Is 300W LED lamp enough for growing auto ak-47?

    Probably want more light. ~500 umols at 12” from the canopy is pretty low...

    I don't have much experience with led but it sounds low to me.
    With most hobbies, buying a package deal may be cheaper, you most always can spend a little more money and source everything separately and have a better end product.

    300 w LED works well if you grow ak47 in grow tent. The inner layer of grow tents increases the light absorption rate which increases the chances of better photosynthesis.

    It is also decided by how large you are willing to grow the plant. 300W for one plant is totally enough.
