Hello Folks. I have yet to grow with LED's, but i want too! I need more info so i'm asking questions and looking for reliable sources and references and some input by our community members. I have 2 grow rooms(1 veg, 1 bud) but with the size of the rooms i am unable to fully furnish them both with LED's as it would cost thousand and i'm not rich. Eventually after saving i will upgrade(it's my 5 yr plan). But for the time being i am gonna be growing in a cabinet. The dimintions are 20"x24"x64". I will be using 2 5g top feed buckets with a res. First time doing hydro even though i bought the buckets awhile bk and was suppose to be for dwc's but i changed my mind.
So pretty much what i'm looking for is answers and some guidance and i'm thinking this is the right place to ask for it as i see much helping members on this site. I need some reliable info, anything about LED's and some good reads. i also need to know, what led's to use, wattage wize and spectrum for veg and bud. I bought 2 15w(5x3w) E27 red/blue ratio 4:1 LED Bulbs for supplemental lighting for my bud room. But i need to know what i would need for my cab. I have a few in mind but i am not fully sure.
Here's 1 of my choices(i am unable to show the other 1's i looked up because the seller is on vacation):
