Do I have the correct grow lights?

    Hi to my fellow smokers.

    I have been growing outdoors for several years. This year I decided to go indoor and have designed a 24 sf room (8' x 3') with over 8' in height. I recently bought two "BESTVA 1500W Double Chips LED Grow Lights Full Spectrum Grow Lamp for Greenhouse Hydroponic Indoor Plants Veg and Flower" and am now wondering if 3000 w is too much light for my area.

    Thankx

    Welcome aboard, Gary.

    That light is actually 280 watts, so you will have 560 total. It won't be too much, you will have to run them for a while to see if they are up to the task, possibly add another when in flower.

    Thanks Gene, I was thinking the same thing, but wanted to hear if from an expert.

    Thanks, but I'm no expert. :) Most LED manufacturers use these "equivalent to" power ratings. Bestva was honest enough to include the actual rating in the specification list. Give them a whirl and see how they perform. Best of luck to you.

    What is draw power of this light? Usually, 35--50W/sf draw power needed for bloom
