    Just an fyi...i originally bought 2 - Viparspectra 600w leds for my 4'x4' tent. They performed really well in veg mode. Plants seemed to thrive...nice green color, tight node spacing etc.
    But not so good in flower mode. Very low yield, very fluffy buds.
    Since then I purchased a 600w hps. Definitely out performed the led hands down. Not to say I'm sure there are better lights out there and have been improvements in led technology. All I can say is do ur research and go with the advice of growing professionals.

    This is one area that creates alot of confusion with led's. It seems that power ratings or actual usage isn't an accurate way of measuring the amount of light energy that the plant can receive. I think that PPF and PPFD units will allow the grower to see how much growth energy each lamp can provide and then make an educated buying choice.
