    According to the manufacturer your light draws 340-360w at the wall and claims a coverage area of 2.5x2 for veg and 2x1.5 for flower.

    In the questions asked by customers on amazon it says your light draws 200-240w so not sure who to believe. Only way to know for sure is test it yourself. Welcome to the deceptive marketing strategies of led manufacturers.

    Ok I'm new this all. So it would be safe to say. I can drop that bad boy closer to plants. ? Should I throw the 300w mars led in there. ?

    You could put both in there, I run 2x345w led panels in my 4x4. Manufacturer recommends 18-24" for veg and 12-18" for flower. I would start with thier max recommendation and move them closer keeping an eye on your plants. If you see bleaching of your buds or burning of your leaves raise your lights.

    Something else you will be discovering with led lights is even though the companies selling them claim they are cooler than other lights they still put off lots of heat and really don't offer a good way of removing it like other types of lights. With both of my panels running at max I have to run ac to keep my tent cool.

    Thx man. This is excellent feed back. Cheers.
    How do you feel about the fox farm trio for nutrients. ? And mixing soil and coco coir together. ?

    I am a hydro guy so I can't comment on anything soil related nor have I used anything fox farms sells.

    I know it's late but I use all Fox farm products I do cut coir into my soil ffof by 25% along with perlite and Ewc and garden lime.
    It works well hygrozyme helps control the salt in the Fox farm products.
    I'm getting ready to go with their organic line I've gotten very good results with the trio so hoping for the same in the organic.
    The tiger bloom and grow big are only synthetics I use their almost gone.
