Isn't that kind of counter productive?? I mean do you want the truth, the whole truth, or just what fits as "pro"?? What you would like to hear?. :p
What you wiil likely get here, is brutal honesty. Take it or leave it...;)

You already asked this question in a different thread. So i'll say it one more time, you can veg with the 90w 1 plant and thats all. If you use this for flower you will have nothing but airy buds. This is from experience not an opinion. Save your money and get a 400w switchable ballast, then pick up a hps and metal halide bulb, then you can veg/flower with one ballast.

save money on the MH bulb and get a T5 for vegging, less heat and great growth!

LED for veg yes but get it close they don't throw very well....as for flower...well tight buds with a 90w LED.....no way no how....can you say light and airy? You need to step up to big boy LEDs for that....the ones that cost 2-3 times what an HPS costs......jmo

Unfortunately, regardless of what you have heard, this is not true. I'm with the others--if you have not purchased an LED, you should really rethink this if you want any kind of yield. I have not used them, but I do not have to jump off a cliff to know that it is not a good idea.

I use one with fantastic results. Though I spent a long time studying LEDs to make sure I was getting one that actually produced decent lumens per watt, fitted with the right projection angle to help intensify the output.

95% of 90w LEDs put out only 1200-2400 lumens. 4% 4k-7500 lumens. And 1% do it up right and get you 9500+.
I pair mine with a few CFLs. And for over 100watts less power, can get much better production than from the 250hps.

Are we talking pro as in "professional" grower, or pro as in "in favor of" led's?

I'm afraid you're gonna find one of the above doesn't use led's.

If my calculator is correct, (7) of those 90 watters--which is 630 watts-- would give you 66,500 lumens. I get 90,000 from one of my 600 watt HPS.

Is there a gain besides the heat issue? I think LED's are the light of the future, but not I'm so sure about the present. I'm curious to hear the input though.

I just finished vegging 8 plants in a 20 sq ft area with four, 28 watt LED panels. They worked great. Compact growth, tight nodes and very healthy plants.

However, I've not flowered with them yet, so like most of the others who answered and also haven't used them for flowering, it would be a guess for me to tell you how they would work.

I don't think I would risk a crop by testing them. I would grow a standard HPS flowered crop and test one LED on one plant in a box of its own. Then, if it doesn't work, you're out only the cost of one LED and some time.

As far as LED experience goes, you're going to get a bunch of variations of:

1. No, I haven't tried it but it suks.

2. No, I haven't ever done it, but it won't work.

3. No, I've never even tried it, but I've heard it suks.

4. No, I've never tried it, but I saw some pics once and it suks.

5. No, I've never done it, but the buds will be light and airy.

6. No, I've never tried it, but save your money and do it the standard way.

In regards to LEDs, rumor, second-hand stories and opinion is 99% of what you'll get if you ask about them. Those who have actually tried them, (like me), love them for vegging and have never even tried them for flowering.

I'm going to try one plant in a 30" x 30" x 36"H box with a 28 watt LED panel and take it from rooted clone to harvest. I'll start a thread for it when it is started. The title of the thread will be something like "28 watt LED flowering trial".

Good luck man. If you try one, please post your experiences.

The simple math above tells the tale for me, and I've looked into LED's. A UFO isn't what I'm looking at, they aren't strong enough (again, the simple math backs that).

So I'm more a no, I've never tried it, but I have researched and I'd say the UFO is weak. If you wish to look into LED, try the newer tech like Kissel, but I'm still convinced they're not strong enough...or I'd already own one!

Pretty sure JAAM has 1st hand experience with growing from start to finish with LEDs and let's just say he uses HPS for flower now....


I have seen some impressive LED grows on a Cpl forums but all the ones that did well in flower were done with 400w LEDs and up....mucho dinero.

I was actually considering getting a cpl 1000w LED panels after my second harvest... around 1800 bucks though...
