many here can tell you what you need in lights, i can just help with telling you what i think they are.

i have read here in several threads that 30w per sqft for great LEDs and 40 or more for not so great ones. so between 120 to 160 watts - but i know nothing
I hope 30w per square foot is enough im using 240w in a 2x4ft so that works out at that i think? I’m sure I have seen aqua man say that it’s enough on one of the threads and if that’s right I would be trusting his advice

Thank Moshmen,have 1000w coming today,2by4,doesn’t land till during the week,so was thinking maybe put this other light when it lands in the smaller tent ,even though the plants are doing ok,although I think they could be a touch bigger.Then when the bigger tent comes,I’ll finish this first grow and see what happens,do you think that’ll be a good move?I know I’m still experimenting,but I don’t want to mess up the ones in the photos by giving them too much light ?it’s all about the Mary-Jane..lols..happy growing mate..and thanks once again.,

how much light can be worked out with math (it is not an exacting science, but a great jumping off point).

square feet times 30 to 40 watts equals the amount of full spectrum LED actual wattage you need.

dont know which 1000w you are getting, but in general, LEDs that are listed 1000w are often 100w. your old light is likely 60w. together they are 160w.

if your tent is 2x2, that is 4 square feet, then 4x30 is 120, 4x40 is 160. (120 to 160 watts). if the tent is a 2x4 that is 8 square feet. 8x30 is 240, 8x40 is 320. (240 to 320 watts)

That light pulls about 100 w from the wall 65 for the leds and 35 for the fan. I'm not a light snob at all, I have basically an identical fixture with a diff brand name. Imo they're a big waste of time. I myself wouldnt buy another one

No it’s the 2by 2 well 1.2by2..so really I’m pulling out enough with both of them in the little tent and probs needing another 600w to make up the number ,maybe another 1000 and all three in it for the big tent ..I’ll get these biodiesel done first ,the 1000s due in the next hour and once I’ve got these biodiesel autos done ,I’ll get round setting up the 2by for ,thanks everyone,it’s good to know you’ve got someone to turn to ..all the best people ..will put some pics up through the week once the bios have had a few dats under both and then we’ll know..we’ll I will lols ..I imagine you’ve either got or almost got your own dialled in and thsnks again,because I knew nowt about the wattage to square feet from the socket ,I assumed the lights lols..cheers people

thanks Moshmen ,I’ll be taking note of that once this other tent comes ,will be starting with the AK47 autos,I have widow feminised there too ,are you able to grow both at the same time. I do know you can just about keep the feminised in veg for about aslong as you decide,I saw a bit about a lad growing both autos and feminised,I was thinking I’d be far enough down the line to do both together ,but that’s the new lighting landed (phizon1000 W) new 2020 with dimmer switch ..earlier I put them in with those 600 watt burple leds,ova not for tonight ,but to see what happens over the next few days ..itheyre during flower ,so should help ,fingers crossed,I was actually thinking that they were a bit small for being in flower,hopefully this is the fix..but for me to have 2tents running I imagine I’ll need at least 2 more of these phizon1000, ones,it did say they were good ones ,they’ve a dimmer switch,although I wouldn’t know what that was for cause right now I have my lights off from 7 till 7,complete darkness for flower,but have my fan still on ..if I’m wrong here,please correct me? Cheers for keeping in touch mate ,it’s good to know I have someone to turn to if I get myself in a pickle,gave the best night buddy ,over n out
