  • New with growing indoors, question about LED lights

    Will regular LED light bulbs ( daylight 5,000K) work for the veg cycle? I was thinking of using 10 because they are 100 w but only use 15 watts power?

    I'm assuming that the led's used in the bulbs are at best, about 50% efficient at converting power into usable light for the plant. I'd think that 150W should cover 3-4 sq/ft and that Kelvin temp should be fine for veg.

      Agreed. The 100W figure is the incandescent equivalent. These should be fine to veg a couple of plants. You might want to beef it up a bit for flowering though.
