If you could choose/ suggest

Hi all,

I was going to go for led but it's proving to be a bit too expensive sadly.

I have two more options, either 1 1000w hid with mh and sodium bulb or 3x 400w hps.

What would your advise be on this one?

Thanks again for all your help guys, I do appreciate it.

How big is your space?

LED's may cost more initially, but they pay for themselves quickly enough.

Once you factor in the money you'll save on bulbs, cooling, and electricity, combined with the yield and quality increase that LED's provide, you almost can't afford not to run them.

That said, I've been running 1k HPS for the past few years with good results.  You'd get better efficiency out of multiple 400s or 600s, so I'd go that route if you can't afford LED's.  But before you pull the trigger, check out this deal on HLG 550 v2 clones:

A third option is to buy two 600 watt hps lights. 400 and 1000 watt hps produce about 140 lumen per watt 600 watt units produce 160 lumen per watt making them the most cost effective option.

If your interested in what a 400 hps and 400 mh does check out my grow journal https://www.growery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/835083

Watch out when buying led lights you can put together a led system using the same led cobs as the main stream sellers for one fifth to one tenth the cost.


17.00 cnd for a 80 watt cob led light with heat sink all you need to do is wire it in and have a fan blowing in your grow space for cooling.

So if you wanted 480 watts total power like the one buddy listed, its 6x80 watts or 6x17  or $102 Canadain vs $400 USD led system on sale that you still have to wire. FYI 400 usd is 568 cnd!!! Sorry buddy that is a good deal you pointed out its just still way more then you need to pay.

Just for shits and giggles I will be doing a micro grow with this 80 watt LED light verses a 70 watt hps light.
