Hi mate. Those purple things aren't great for getting density in my experience. 

 

If it was me I'd go for something from DIYLEDUK who has a forum on UK420 where you can get really good advice on what sort of LED to use for your area. 

 

If your on a budget, then a HPS will give you better quality buds than the purple things on their own. 

 

On a different note, you may have had a strain that tends to give airy buds, look into strains that are known to give you nice dense nugs, this will help.

Yeah last grow was a dr Krippling gorilla infested gelato I have noticed it’s autos that I have problems with very airy but with good trichomes ect I’m thinking a hlg but they are expensive especially when I can get a 600 hps dim it down to 250 and just use that on 1-2 plants just worried about the temps in wardrobe form the 250w someone told me I’d be fine and that I could possibly run it from 400 instead if I wanted but I’ll see think I’m heading towards hps some I sorta know it also been told to use bulbs  like hortilux , genesis and sunmaster
