what about the water cooled 1000 watt club?

The LED UFO produces roughly 600W and registers on an electricity bill at around 90w. I'm thinking about investing in one soon.

How much would one expect to be investing in that, and how does the light spectrum on an LED like that compare to an HPS or MH?

I looked into those. They seem nice.

http://www.hydroponicsfarming.com/product-612.html
http://www.ggorganics.com/led-ufo-grow-light-450.html

My only deal is I don't believe that they cover very much space when it comes to light. It seems like it would be the bomb for just one plant but terrible for any more plants. Plus I think plants will stretch like 90% of the time with one of them.
On the other hand they are pretty cool looking, and do save some serious money in the pocket.

Im in for the 600w club(hps,mh), real talk, they produce.

Count me in, i currently run one 600 watt digital HPS in my room. Had a bank of T-5's for veg but my friend took them back to stick one of his moms under. I'll probably be buying a 600 watt convertible ballast by the end of the summer to add to the cabinet.

Technically this will be my first full run with the 600 as i added it into the cabinet towards the end of my last grow when my 400 watter blew out on me.

hell, no need to get rid of the 400 if you have room for it. Run it side by side with the 600 and you'll have an extra 400 watts shining down on the girls.

Ahh no, he decided to bump it up to 600 during the planning stage. He doesn't have any equipment yet. :wink: It would be nice to have 1000 watts but I think he'll leave it at 600 for now. :smile:

holey shit, these make me want to start growing weed. I dont even smoke the shit. well at least ill know how to grow it. when my living arrangements are a little more suited for growing i might just start a little indoor garden to grow veggies and herbs during the winter time. And of coarse it will be fully functional should i decide i want to grow some buds. :smile:

Sorry to be such a noob, but dont the plants have to grow to 4 feet in hight to flower? Should the light source be repositioned relative to the hight / growth cycle?

I don't think they have to grow to a certain height in order to flower. Some indica plants might never see that height. When you're growing indoors, you can decide when to change the light to induce the flowering stage, and some might do that after they've only been in vegetative growth for a week, although that probably isn't too common.

You'd want to move the lights as the plants grow depending on how much heat the light is producing, so they don't get too close and get burned. :smile: I don't think the light would be repositioned relative to the growth cycles, just as the plants grow, but the amount of time the light is on each day would be changed for the growth cycles. When they are in vegetative growth they will get 18 to 24 hours of light each day, and then they wait for you to change the light to only 12 hours each day to know when to enter into the flowering cycle. :wink:

Sweet. As far as the heat produced by the light source is concerned, arnt you eliminating much of this problem with the 600u$d LED array?

I noticed they say the LED's produce low heat, and use only 80w but they dont include the ballast in that statment.

Does a ballast for this produce extra heat or drain extra wattage?

you dont need a ballast for LEDs, it should be self contained with a few additional diodes and resistors

Considering that there were only three posts and one was simply a question, I think that classifies as full. :smirk:

Regardless, the two replies are elaborate and in-depth explanations as to why those particular LED lights are not better for growing than much cheaper alternatives. The one dude even creates his own LED lights, and the first did a great comparison in yield between the UFO and his usual HPS setup.

did that what a waste of electricty the Lumen output of the 400w is a joke compared to the 600w

go 2 600w and really see a differnce. did the 400w thing hell id about give that ballast away.

well, if you have the money for new equipment, sure.  I'd use two 600's over a 4 and a 6 any day.  But if you weren't able to afford a new ballast and bulb the extra 400 watts won't hurt unless you can't vent the heat :wink:
