LED lights - cannot put timer on !!

bought these last month -    VIPARSPECTRA-600W-LED-Grow-Light

tried to set up last night then realised there is no built in timer or anywhere to put timer on,  emailed the seller on ebay and they say there is not a function on this light to add a timer .

 

what am i going to do now ?  manually put light on and off every day myself ? 

my own fault for rushing in and trying to start growing quickly without doing my homework first !!!  

 

couple more questions if i may ...what height do i place these in veg and what height in bloom

how many hours on & off in veg and how many hours ( cycle )  in bloom .

 

cheers guys !

Has your led got a plug????

I bloody hope so, plug and play mate.

 

Leds can get a bit of a bad Rep, I would advise you start high and lower if needed, or just leave it high

For the rest check out the grow diary section.Jj:yinyang:

Buy a timer mate, a bit bigger than plug with segments on it, have a Google mate, cost you about £15 for a reasonable one have a look on G&H they sell them.Jj:yinyang:

Use the timer between the light and socket for hours you want on and off, keep bloom switch off in veg and turn BOTH veg and bloom n when flowering and let timer do on and off cycles....as for height minimum 18 inch maybe bit higher

have a look at Grow & harvest, one of the sites sponsors sell them for £9.95  HERE 

 

they might charge postage but its still a hell of a lot safer buying it from a dedicated grow gear supplier than buying it off ebay,

especially when it mentions hydroponics in its selling title   :russian: but as they say, the choice is yours.
