    Everyone starts somewhere @Bruce111, don’t assume we all went out and blew a couple thousand right up front, but can end up costing that much over time.
    One thing we all may agree on though, it’s better spent than purchasing questionable MJ from an dispensary. With our home grows we/you’ll know exactly what you used during the grow.

    I took that pic about 10 minutes before I posted it. I won't have a yield 'till "bout the 10th of Sept. I will go out on a limb and predict 1/2 lb.

    Learned about lot about different kind of LED grow lights last few days. A lot of indoor growers still want to use purple color light. And these lights are not so expensive for them. I also want to choose this color as they have two spectrum that i can switch. I think plants can grow better in this way. How do you guys think? :):)

    There are 2 paths with leds; personal grows and commercial grows. The products are different and they are priced differently. I use a 4x8 tent to feed my flowering room. I live in CA and the summer temps are 100+ from June 1 to October 1. I was running 2 1K HPS air cooled lights in the tent. I had to run ducting to vent all the heat and it increased my a/c substantially in the hottest part of summer. I have since replaced the 2 HPS with 1 led. It is super expensive and really best when used by experienced growers.

    Thanks man. I am dreaming when i can get a 4x8 size. Lol. But i will learn to be a experienced grower. A long way to go.
    Oh, ****. That light is very expensive. :(. I am not a rich grower. So i would like to choose the cheap light like Mars-Hydro and Viperspectra that a lot of customers use. Very busy recently. Don't have too much time to learn the difference.

    I got the chance to win the Mars-Hydro giveaway. They sent me a Mars pro II 80. Much appreciated. It is very suitable for my 2x2 grow tent. I will keep you guys posted regarding what it can do. :)

    Although the light is made in china, it seems like the quality is not bad. Draw power is around 170W. In 2x2 grow tent, plants can get enough light. I love this model so far. :p

    I Found the draw power is a little less than what they said on website. But i think it doesn't matter for me. I care more about the final yiled.
