Hello all! Just a quick couple of questions with regards to the daisychain option on my LED grow lights. They are nothing too expensive compared to some of the lights that are on the market but its my first grow and they seem to be doing OK for now. So firstly, I didn't plan on using more than one grow light. I started off small with a 2x2 tent and a MarsHydro II 400 lamp (173w from the wall)..after a few weeks I got the bug and had already decided that I was going to upgrade my tent for a bigger space. So I went out and got myself a 4x4... But obviously the MarsHydro lamp would not cover the new space. The new plan was to use the small tent and Mars for veg...then swap to the bigger tent and purchase a new light for flower. I wanted to stick with LEDs and stay cheap so this time I went for the Viparspectra 900w (405w from the wall)...so now I had two tents and two lights. But having the bug meant thay I couldn't stop there and was already wanting more light in my bigger tent..so I moved the MarsHydro into the 4x4 and this now meant I had two LEDs in this space, but no light in the 2x2. As such, I got another LED, this time the Viparspectra 300w (134w from the wall). Before I even set this up in the 2x2 I had already decided that I was temporarily going to put this in the 4x4 untill I had some seed to plant in the veg tent...no point it just being sat there eh!? So currently my 4x4 houses 3 LED grow lights: Viparspectra 900 (405w) Viparspectra 300 (134w) MarsHydro II 400 (173w) A total of 712w being drawn from the wall. My latest plan is to keep all three I. The 4x4 and get another Viparspectra 300 for the 2x2. At the min, they are all currently running off their own power cables and not daisychained. Sorry for the long winded story but now here's my questions: 1) The Viparspectra 900w being the biggest LED doesn't have the daisychain plug :-/ the smaller versions do...but the 900w doesn't - does anyone know why this is? 2) Both the MarsHydro II 400 and the Viparspectra 300w have the daisychain plug, am I able to link these two different branded LEDs? Or will I face problems? Is it safe? 3) If I can daisychain to two different branded LEDs. Does it matter if what order I start the chain in? For examples can I start at with the Viparspectra 300 with a wattage of 134 the link that to the MarsHydro? And if this is the case, is it safe to link all three lights together? So start low and work up to the biggest light? Thanks for any time given to help out a new grower!!
