I was wondering I'm going to try indoor soon and my friend has these construction lights theres two of them and there both 500watts a piece so a 1000watts all together thats around 10,000 lumes do any of you now if that would be suitable for 2 or 3 plants in a closet space. both lights are mounted on a cross bar and then theres a stand for them there really bright so i was guessing they'll be good for some phase of growth :rolleyes: :confused: CINCY

For 2 or 3 plants I would use just use one. Two would be a big heat issue in a small space. They put out alot of heat !

I'm doing a SCROG in a 3x3x5 with 9 plants under a 400w and they get plenty of light.

I figure 35 - 50 watts per sq. ft. is good. If its a big closet use both if you can vent enough air.

Good luck!

How big is the closet and what color are the lights ? Are they a white light or a amber/red light ?

You can veg and flower under both but it's best to use white/blue for veging and red/amber for flowering.

If you can keep it cool enough, Split the closet into two spaces and use one light on each side. One side keep on a 18/6 timer and the other a 12/12 timer. That would be the best use of space.

try to find out what kind of lights you have. either metal halide or high pressure sodium. you may have a halogen or mercury vapor bulb which is no good for what you want to do.
