    I looked into LED lights a couple years ago. I'd stay away from Chinese imports and stick with USA or European brands. You should really look into the over all cost of using LED lighting though. The savings on the electricity needs to be looked at. If you live in an area with high electrical bills, then it would make more sense to invest in LED, otherwise, the initial cost of the LED will take so long to pro rate with electrical savings, that it might not be worth using LED lighting.

    If your just getting into growing indoors, using CFL lighting is an option. You won't get the same yields as dedicated grow lights, but you can still get some really good weed and decent yields with a much lower cost of jumping into the fray. Generally it takes a few grows to really get a feel for growing anyway, especially if your not into gardening as a lifelong hobby.

    Gosh !!! I may have to start over as the only hydroponic/ organic grow store where I live has no idea what they are doing and sold me nutrients no one has ever heard of that killed my plants. :mad::mad::mad: What should I do:(:(:(

    You can start by not blaming the hydro store. :D

    Those plants were much too young to need any kine nutes.
    If you fed them you killed them.
    No worry happens all the time.
    Next batch? Give them plain water until the cotyledons start to shrink or the new growth pales.

    That light looks too far away to keep them from stretching.
    I could be wrong about that, depending on power and lensing.

    The best thing you can do now is click on the first link in my sig and read.
    Then read some more. Maybe even buy a book.
    Best not to try to grow by asking a few questions
    You will need a basic understanding of this plant to be able to tell good advice from no so good advice..
    Then, plant more seed. :)

    I prefer bi-color LEDs and use only Foxfarm soil and plain water for the first month or so.
    Most soils have enough basic, and trace elements for most of the veg cycle.
    If new growth starts to go pale, I simply up-pot.
    Foxfarm soil is hot enough to carry them all the way to flower as long as they are not root-bound.

    I do have some Captain Jack's, dry "flower" nutes for the debutantes.

    It is all P. and K. that has the girls raiding their fans for nitrogen at the end.
    Saves me some trimming work and makes for large, solid buds.

    It's wise to read through the archives. Even the stuff you don't currently care about.
    Some of the best info I have gleaned was stumbled over while searching for something else. :)
    And you will know whatever you're going to need to know 2 years down the line, yah?
