LED advice

Posted (edited)

Howdy @Ledgrowlights-Adam & @ledgrowlights-Craig

 

Looking for a bit of advise on somme LED's, I have recently bruilt a new grow room in my loft and my 315 CMH doesn thave the ooompf or the coverage any more. I was looking at Scopex 250's x2 to cover a 1m x 2m ish grow area? Sound about right? Are the scopex any good and will they handle being hung at an angle ok? the roof is an apex so the only place i can get to hang straight is in the middle but then the edges wont get any light (2m is the width on the apex)

 

Looking to spend at max £500 any better ideas than 2 x 250 scopex?

Scopex-250 are not in stock at the moment. Id go for the PAR+240s but you may struggle with only 2 of them. They are a smaller format so may fit better aswell.

Hey @NiceCuppaTea4Me

 

I'd consider adding smaller LEDs either side of the 315CMH -

The PAR 140s are out of stock, unfortunately - 2x of those would be my choice :) 

 

I like the results and the leaf temps I get from CMH/LED mix.

Also gives you the opportunity to create a more blue/red spectrum by alternating the CMH bulbs.

 

Good luck with whatever option you choose

Thanks for the responses, it’s gonna be a few weeks before I got the cash together. So I guess I can think about the options until then. I like the idea of smaller leds for supplemental and keeping the cmh just because I have enough unused ballast already ;-) 

 

@Ledgrowlights-Adam any idea when you will be getting some more par 140s and scopex 250s?

It will be atleast 6 weeks. Id say the PAR+140 should be back in 1st.
