What budget light would you get for a 3 plant auto cupboard grow?

27 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

 

On a budget - what is the best lighting to get for around £60-90 for a 3 plant autoflower grow?

 

Any suggestions or links would be very helpful, thanks!

75x48x120cm and I am hoping to fit 2 autoflowers in there as I think 3 might be a push for this space? Planning on running 2-3 different strains

 

thanks for the responses guys!

I would get one of these, 75 watts added red spectrum so suitible from seed to harvest, i use 2 of the older 70 watters for veg and they are awesome lights.

@80085 is doing a diary with one at the minute !

 

I hope the links ok as hes a site sponser.

Would a single one of these be suitable for 2-3 auto plants from seed to harvest? Thanks!

Its more down to area than plant numbers, i have grown autos that have yielded from 5 grams to 30 grams, xxl versions can be good for a good few ounces.

I would look for a digital ballast if your going hps, you could get one off the bay for similar money to that magnetic ballast !

Lovely looking plant mate! What strain is she? Beautiful colours.

 

will a single quantum board be adequate for the small 2-3 plant auto closet grow do you think or would I need more than one? By the sounds of it you are using more than one?
