Hey everyone,
I was looking for some recommendations for an LED grow light for flowering only. I want a detachable driver preferably in a bar style. It seems most LED lights are full spectrum. I'm thinking of maybe two 300 watt lights or one 600 watt light somewhere in that neighborhood. It's not always easy finding manufacturers recipes. Some manufacturers like spider farmer will say what color spectrum they use but they won't tell you the number of diodes in each color spectrum. I don't want to pay for a bunch of blue diodes that I don't need. I have seen that hlg makes a quantum board with no blue light diodes but the driver's not detachable and it's a quantum board style. I would also prefer Samsung 301b or 301h diodes. Does anybody have any recommendations? I'm not interested in any Mars hydro products please. They are a dirt bag of a company that doesn't honor their warranty.

Oh cool.... I've never heard of them before. I'm going to take a look at them.
Thanks

I have a California light works solar storm cob bloom booster, a bit pricey at $4 to $500 bucks but you can't argue with results, money well spent!
I've seen the California light works online and in fact a store in my city carries them. I wasn't sure of Cob technology though. Is that considered old school? Are they still popular? Is that style of LED as good as the newer bar styles, in areas such as light spread? I'm going to look closer at them though. There's not a lot of options for strictly flowering.

Thanks

It really depends on your budget and size of your room. I am poor so I use king led from Amazon
I use to have a lush but I gave it to my uncle when I graduated college.i got some pretty good results.

Budget is found at Elevated Lighting. I have 2 130 red spec of theirs. Very nice! Also thrilled to have an HLG and 2 Maxisun MF1000 Boards. All excellent and Maxisun is stupid cheap for what you get.

Unfortunately I don't know much about LED's as i'm still using my Analog Sunsytem Ballast. But I did want to jump in and say. I love your avatar. I'm a huge Trek fan. I even read all the novels. Live Long and Prosper my friend.

The SE7000 is 730w and has full spectrum/red 301b diodes so it's perfect for flowering. Detachable driver, too.

They measure there PPFD numbers at 8" to boost their numbers. Why would you put your light so close to the canopy you are losing so much coverage. I'd like to see someone take PPFD readings at a decent distance say 18" to see what it looks like. They also test in a tent and not in an integrated sphere.
