Suggeations for side lighting? Flw rm
    #830423 - 12/14/17 09:25 PM (6 months, 4 days ago)

I have a buddy who has a flwr rm, dimientions go, 5ft width 6 ft length, 9 ft height.
Theres a 1 k hps in there, but too my knowledge, a 1k hps will cover a 5x5 area at max, being i have a foot to work with i planned on putting younger veged plants in the flw rm, for personals, so i figured id look into lighting that will cover a 1.5 ft width- 5ft length area, my best guess goes as...
1. Cfl- [tried and proven] but less efficent and bulbs go out and are costly depending what cfl you got [t5-t6]

2. Cob led light. [perhaps ones i can replace, as i hear led dont last long-cheap. Or perhaps a vipra spectra?



My buddys running a perepet grow, so he was just wondering what ways to go, theres so much misinformation/ biast info, just thpught id ask you guys.
Thanks for the help.


I was also thinking of gettin a 150 hps or 250 watt hps as the side lighing.
Or even a but load of high intensity led strip lights?

couldnt go wrong with another HPS if you can cool it. 150 or 250 wont put out hardly any heat. Or you could use a LED pannel. theyre good for veg and would probably work well on the side where plants are transitioning from veg to flower.

LED strip lighting, get the ones that use samsung 561c diodes (same as qb's) and jb-weld them to some aluminum angle.  You will also need a driver, it's all pretty straight forward if you can do basic math.

Quantum Boards, they are pretty popular right now. 

You can buy kits, but it's cheaper to DIY, they sell strips on digikey and arrow, or alibaba.
Samsung's F-series is a good bar, you can try cheaper options if you want to start off on a budget and upgrade as you go, but I wouldn't skimp on the driver. 

Some people have made use of the led strips from television backlights, samsung acuity replacement strips are about $13 for 40w on ebay.
