So, I've got a room 9.5x10 with 8 ft ceiling. I've got a 4'x4' tent for flowering with a 600w hps. I need my whole room efficiently lit for both grow and veg. Let's avoid any heat concerns as I can adequately handle whatever I choose. But please, I have no idea what would be BEST, so tell me what you think and why, please. Thank all y'all ahead of time for chiming in.

you must of done some research? you must have a feeling which way you want to go?

Please explain what you mean by "whole room efficiently lit for both grow and veg". Do you want an area for seedlings, veg, and flower? How do you plan to keep these separate? I am just trying to understand. Do you want the whole room to be lit for seedlings and veg but the tent will be for flower?

Yeah, you got it. I'm looking for something that will allow me to effectively grow in the entire space. Like a 2000w hps? 2000w led,... ? I just don't know what size light would work best. I know myself, and I'm going to end up dogfish in plants. So, I'm looking for something that can keep up with my appetite for growing.

I do, but that came with the grow tent... I'm exceeding it's limitations and looking to expand my growing surface. Trying to get recommendations on a light that someone has had experience handling that space effectively... without having to have multiple lights if avoidable.

That's cool. There are many on here that can help you but this can go so many differnet ways...good luck. lol. I mean that in the nicest way. I would probably run a bigger tent with hps for flower, and have cmh for veg, led for seedlings. The possibilities are endless.
