19 * 8 = 152watts and you need 125-200watts per plant and thats
500- 800watts per plant it might work for a little while it according how big they are:shrug: and if there weed

Well you don't need any amount of watts PER PLANT. You need 50+ watts per sq ft.

I've had 6 plants under 400watts that did great.

That doesn't equate in all scenarios though.  If I do a sog under a 1000 watt light, I may fit 20 or more plants under it.  On the other side I could do 2.
