I thought i’d start a new thread to discuss this.
I’m in the process of turning one of my rooms over and next round i want to throw up some new LED’s. I also want to supplement with CMH/HPS. i assume this will be in a checkerboard fashion but i’m open for opinion on good ways to go about this.
the room is 18’ x 23’ currently with 15 HPS in a 3x5 grid.
If i go standard checkerboard with 1 LED over a 4x4 followed by a CMH/HPS followed by an LED, etc… is that enough? the goal is to suppliment my LED light with the penetration and spectrum of a traditional(ish) type bulb. now common sense tells me that while the plants directly under the lights will get some of the lights from adjacent fixtures it won’t be the sum of the 2. especially under the CMH/HPS. the LED light will travel directly down and not so much “over” near as much as the CMH/HPS light will. not sure if that’s a statement or a question.
any input on the correct way to do this appreciated.
thanks in advance.
