New grower second grow

For a 3x3 tent you want at least 250 real watts and more is better if you want to maximize yields and bud density. I find the sweet spot at around 400-450 watts. That said I have about 800 watts on tap in my 3x3 flowering tent but rarely use more than 500-600 watts.

My flowering tent light setup - a HLG 550 rspec and and a HLG 260 rspec with a couple HLG UVA 30s.

Just the HLG 550 would be more than enough for most growers in a 3x3, and even the the HLG 260 by itself would do alright.

Hlg. Horticulture lighting group. U want nice buds this is where to start at. Hlg. Budget led. Rapid led. Basically if u go with led u want samsung lm301b or h chips and meanwell or inventronics drivers. Then ull be set for light. Light is the most important part of the grow then genetics all else u can basically wing and get away with it but light for sure is :key:

I agree with @Mark0427 those lights your looking at are not going to grow bud I don’t care what the box says you need quality lighting or else it’s just a waste of time and money and stress
