  1. Hi Guys, I'm Dave and I'm a noob to growing. Im finding it difficult to get information regarding cheaper LED brands as a lot of the brands mentioned on forums/youtube seem to be either exclusive to the US or not around anymore and certainly not accessible to me in the UK. So, to the setup so far: 4ftx4ftx6ft tent 5" rvk fan with 6" carbon filter attached for outlet 4" rvk fan for inlet plagron allmix root bags beginners mistake: 1 x Wappa, 1 x vertigo (auto), 1 x Mexican Sativa, 1 x ruderalis indica (semi-auto) and 1 x either cambodian or jam sensi... and yes I now know I shouldn't have gone for all different seeds, but they're about 6" tall now and I don't want to start again. I figured I'd just experiment this 1st time and use it as a learning experience and not be too upset about yield. I managed to get all the above for what I think is a good price (£200). the final thing I've been researching is my lighting and my eyes are finding it difficult to cope with reading screens most the day trying to find the best bang for my buck without getting fleeced. I've got an absolute max budget of £300 and I definitely need to go the LED route due to other means producing too much heat. I've been in-touch with Mars who recommended the mars2 1200W or the reflector 192. They seem okay, however, I'm not fully convinced as I've heard that 1200w lets out a lot of heat. Should i go for one big light to cover it all all loats of small ones? Heat is something i want to keep to a bare minimum and 300 quid is max. As you can tell ive only really found mars to be within my range and would really like to hear about other affordable trustworthy brands. I would really appreciate any of your suggestions. thank you Dave
  2. Hi am after some advice from experienced growers , its a first indoor grow but first some information. Media / nutes - plant magic supreme , and oldtimers veg / bloom , root granuals and silicone . Strains - incredible bulk auto , rhino ryder auto , royal bluematic auto , royal dwarf auto Grow space 4ft by 1 and half foot closet grow . ( 6 square feet ) floor space, total height is 4 foot thats were lights are situated 6" rhino hobby carbon filtration exhaust into loft space . Lighting mars hyro 300 = around 140 true watt 2 x 50w warm led floodlights 4 x 125w cfl daylights ----------- So my question is mainly about lighting have i got enough? I know the l.e.d floodlights are not ideal/ recommended but they were only bought as a cheap substitute / suplimmental lighting ... i figured they cost 17 pound ( less than a bag of weed ).....the cfls i had knocking about anyway . Now the mars lighting - is this enough for the space i am using on its own ? Would i be better buying 1-2 more same size or a mars 600 ( just under 300w actual draw ) or would 450 true watt alltogether be overkill on a 6ft square space ???? Has anyone used warm 2000 odd K white l.e.d floodlights for supplimental lighting? on bottom closet shining up on a angle for the lower buds??? I know cfl are meant be daylight for veg then swapped to a 2000 odd k bulb but can i flower well using the daylight bulbs alongside the flowering spectrum led units without it making airy buds etc ? The reason i think this is because you can mix flower and veg cfls through flowering surely a flower spectrum led and veg cfl would give simmilar effects?? Now please take it easy on me i am a beginner and i am posting for advice any comments will be took on board 👍
