Gosh, I don't even know where to start. I've put my Viparscpectra 600w (276 true draw) through 2 grows now and I'm getting really good results - I'm very happy with the bud growth. Can you get even bigger buds with a different light, sure - of course you can. Does that warrant a PSA? Probably not, unless it's exploding in people's faces, lol.

What you say about the light killing plants is true, but in the early days no one read the manual that comes with it where it specifically warns against putting seedlings closer than 30" or vegging plants closer than 24". You don't want your plants closer than that with an LED anyway because you don't get the same coverage area in terms of PAR values.

Okay, so lastly let me just say that it looks like you don't even own the light, is that so? You're going by the fact that you don't like it's specs? And you link people's negative reviews (and none of the positive). You've got a hell of a grudge going on there, what did Viparspectra DO to you?

u/I-Make-New-Act · 7 pointsr/chicago

Not terribly hard. Depends on how elaborate you want to go. At minimum buy a grow light, and a grow tent, pot a few plants, and tend to them regularly enough to see that they are healthy. Then harvest when the time comes, and then dry & cure for a couple weeks. Figure 3-4 months from the day you plant the seed to a good smoke.

Once the set-up is done it's just tending to your babies, looking for refinements in your process.

Some plants during flowering really stink though. Even 2-3 will stink up your whole house and can permeate to neighbors if living in attached homes.

u/swimnsmoke20 · 7 pointsr/microgrowery

I looked at OP's post history.
https://www.amazon.com/VIPARSPECTRA-Reflector-Spectrum-Indoor-Plants/dp/B019ETLC7M

276 Watt (actual useage) Viparspectra 600.
The light is called a 600 because it has 120 5-Watt LED's 120*5=600 But they are driven to 46% maximum wattage to prolong life and not build of as much heat.

The 1 gram per watt, decent harvest, estimate suggests OP should get 10 ounces with ease.

u/agoristbastard · 7 pointsr/microgrowery

Hey, I JUST came off building a setup and it cost me $750 total. We have 3 plants in there right now. I have the entire list with amazon links or store suggestions.

Item| Price | Where To Buy
---|---|----
Tent| $95| We bought this one, I don't know if it's worth spending a lot on anything more expensive. For a smaller option I just got a second with good reviews but can't vouch for it yet.
Lights/Hood/Ballast| $140| I got the 600W set, but 400W would make cooling MUCH easier and still get a big yield. For LEDs at similar price, Viparspectra 300W x2 or a single 600W eliminates need for extra cooling potentially (not included here, we used fans from around the house)
ph Test+Control Kit | $25| GET THIS. The water must be pH'd properly for your babies' health.
Cloth Pots| $20 | These are better for aeration, water flow, training, etc. Cheap and reusable too.
Nutrients | $50 | I got the Fox Farms Trio, but there are many good options out there.
Fan + Filter | $150 | This is huge and might be overkill for you. Make sure whatever you get fits your tent vents (This one fits the Apollo tent above with 6" vents).
Ducting | $20 | Connect fan to filter, to tent, to wherever. Might want multiple sizes, check tent vent sizes.
Foil Tape, Metallic | $10 | Here. Metal Duct tape is best duct tape.
Fan Speed Controller | $20 | Useful for if you do get a fan that is slightly overkill!
Fox Farms Ocean Forest | $15 - $40 | You can buy it online and I did for my first 3 bags....then I found it in a local store for $15. There is some controversy with FF lately, it's not organic FYI. There are tutorials on making your own soil if you care, but I like this because I didn't have to use nutes for 3-4 weeks.
Humidifier | $30 | This is the exact one I have. We're in winter so I need it to keep humidity up, you may not.
Dehumidifier | $40 | There are plenty for this much. You may not need this either.
Cal-Mag | $20 | I haven't needed it yet but it's best to have on hand if you do!
Seeds | $75 | I bought from Attitude, chose stealth, and bought like 15 seeds?, so it was expensive. You can get seeds for less.
Jiffy Pellets | $10 | Used to start seeds. There are other options.
Total | $745 | If you buy all this stuff, you have potentially even more than you need to get started, with room for 3-4x more plants than these boxes, and with nutrients to last you for a long long time!

Hope this helps! I'd hate to see you drop so much on it when you don't need to at all.

u/xXriderXx7 · 3 pointsr/microgrowery

Wanted to check in with the knowledgeable folks here just to make sure everything looks right. First grow so this is somewhat basic. Plan to go bigger and upgrade to some better stuff next grow or so. This was planted from a bag seed I found. Planted on Nov 5 into a coco expanding puck. Transplanted as soon as it sprouted (puck and all). Still can't tell if female or male, but if it's male I've learned a ton so I'm not too worried.

Current set up is:

Tent: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07PJ4VWF7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Light: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019ETLC7M/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Pots (Have the 5 gallon to grow into): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07VPCTDH8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Ventilation: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07Q7CNPQM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Medium: Fox Farms Oceans Forest (luckily a local store sells it)

Nutes: Fox Farm Trip (local again)

u/CaptnIgnit · 3 pointsr/Bonsai

South facing windows don't provide even light, you need to rotate the tree to keep them from leaning too heavily. This means they don't get as much light as if they were outside. This means health will be compromised over time.

Grow lights of sufficient power are not ridiculously cheap. I have this one and this one. The first I use for seedlings as it isn't powerful enough to provide enough light to developed tree. The second I use seasonally if it gets too cold as I don't have room for a greenhouse.

You may be able to find cheaper used equipment, especially older stuff like CCFLs and MH/HPS. But those have a whole host of problems from heat management to spectrum and intensity issues.

Depending on where you keep the light, you may also need to worry about temperature and humidity. I use a small grow tent to help control both temp and humidity, but this also adds additional expense.

All this, just to mimic conditions that are generally readily available outside.

> Never said it was just as viable either but to deny like everyone preaches in this sub, it is what then?

You originally said

> you will come across many people who have grown years or decades indoor. It's an elitist opinion that it can only be outdoor.

This presents a view of indoor and outdoor as a choice of little consequence. aka they are equally viable.

> Moreover, stop referencing horticulturists unless you can quote one chiming in on the topic of bonsai, else that's just talk.

fine, here's a bonsai professional with a degree in horticulture:

> So there are clients that have found situations where they’re capable of cultivating these indoors, but it’s an extremely challenging thing to do. We also end up potentially designing the space in which their trees are held.

u/9babydill · 3 pointsr/microgrowery

bought this ViparSpectra 600w year a ago, still works but it's been collecting dust now. Wanted to convert this using Vero 29 COBs.


How many Vero 29s can I run on this? With 2 drivers @ 140-180 output voltage each? and at 700ma or is that voltage combined 280-360v? Can I run 10 Veros? because it'll be running at a soft current of 700ma. I'm a bit confused on the final number.


At full blast the unit was pulling 285 272 watts, 121v, 2.2amps from the wall. thanks

u/mkwash02 · 3 pointsr/microgrowery

First, shout out to u/exploitingsoil for all of your help and advice! Here's my question, I have this light. I just switched to flower two days ago and there are two light switches labeled "veg" and "flower" I assume I should only have the flower switch on during flower, but it seems so much dimmer and I'm worried it will hinder growth with it off. Can I leave both spectrums on during flower our should I just have the one flower switch on? Thanks in advance!

u/Mearbert · 3 pointsr/microgrowery

Hello, nice to see another female around here. :)

I say go for it, you can always upgrade along the way. Being illegal, you need a sealed environment with a filter and fan. May I recommend a small setup?

$60 - 2x2 tent (I have this, high quality)

$34 - carbon filter (I also have this, works great, no smell outside the tent)

$18 - 100 cfm fan, works for this size tent and filter

$180 - decent Amazon light that will get good results in a 2x2 (if you don't want to DIY)

$12.50 - Fox Farms soil

u/Crowbar1127 · 3 pointsr/OKmarijuana

I just asked a similiar question not long ago and looked at many premade kits, I feel like I got a way better setup doing it somewhat separately, I looked at stuff like this https://www.amazon.com/BloomGrow-Reflective-Ducting-Hydroponic-24X24X48/dp/B0757YRKW7/ref=sr_1_49?m=AOALYYYVUG1U0&marketplaceID=ATVPDKIKX0DER&qid=1561412214&s=merchant-items&sr=1-49&th=1 , and eventually purchased this stuff, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019ETLC7M/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 160$ actual wattage is like 250-275 ish

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07B3LG55T/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1 120$

​

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07PJ4VWF7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1 70$

It is like 75-100 more expensive but I felt like it was a huge jump in quality for the money invested. Thanks to the people who advised me to buy not as a complete kit.

u/mewincali · 2 pointsr/microgrowery

It's just a 2x4x6, Quictent 48"x24"x84" to be exact. I don't really recommend this tent, but it's what I've got right now. There's some light leaks and poor stitching I had to cover up.


It was originally meant for iPower 48"x48"x78" but I had to downsize for some space reasons.


I've been slowly upgrading where I can between grows, so the initial investment didn't hit me as hard. But if you can afford it, I would recommend getting higher quality material the first time around and saving your money long term. I've got 2x Blurple VIPARSPECTRA Reflector-Series V600 600W, that old 4x4 grow tent, and that old fan+filter combo all collecting dust -- essentially an entire grow setup.


I'm now using an HLG-600H Quantum Board (dimmed), that 2x4x6 tent, and the filter+fan combo I posted above.


Also, my fan is probably overkill for my current setup, so I did the math for the CFMs needed for my tent and used a Variable Fan/Router Speed Controller to turn it down a bit. Not sure if I'd completely recommend that controller, but it's just what I've got.

u/oh2ridemore · 2 pointsr/gardening

I have been really happy with these VIPARSPECTRA lights from amazon.com. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019ETLC7M/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
From the wattage observed via zwave switch and led count, thinking they use 3 watt leds. I liked them enough to buy 2 of the '300 watt' versions and one 600 watt. Combined with my old metal halide fixture, plants are super happy.
Coffee, lime, lemon, tangerine, pineapples, various other tropical plants.
If they last 10 years will be happy. Tired of using so much wattage on ballasts for the mh and hps fixtures.

u/ValorousVagabond · 2 pointsr/Autoflowers

He's referring to something like this.

https://www.amazon.com/VIPARSPECTRA-Certified-Reflector-V600-Spectrum/dp/B019ETLC7M/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=marshydro+600w&qid=1555082870&s=gateway&sr=8-5

Pay attention to the amount of power it draws from the wall, not the "600w" figure they posted which is going to be quite wrong. I did the math on the ones available on Amazon, and the Viparspectras seem to give you the best W/$ ratio.

u/gbond666 · 2 pointsr/microgrowery

u/Toomanypasswords · 2 pointsr/microgrowery

I think an led would be perfect as they run cool but still have power and spectrum options, perfect for tight spaces. I am flowering with a viparspectra600 (actual 267w) led in a 2x3x5 cabinet and love it. https://imgur.com/a/YjnNO

Using every inch of your grow space wisely, and guiding the plants structure will help you maximize yield and plant health.

That should get you started. You'll need a couple timers as well but that's a decent start.

u/oldmanslum · 2 pointsr/microgrowery

Was looking at this one
https://www.amazon.com/VIPARSPECTRA-Certified-Reflector-V600-Spectrum/dp/B019ETLC7M
Thought process was if I ever want to go with more than 6 (I think) it should be able to provide enough light. Thanks for the reply man

u/SuspiciousChemistry · 2 pointsr/microgrowery

It is an LED panel, this one to be specific.
It's been awhile since I took a physics course on waves and optics, but I think what's happening is the cracked door to the closet is causing diffraction, which leads to the light from individual LEDs on the panel to bend differently based on their color, creating the rainbow pattern. Of course it also might not be based on the individual colors but rather their placement on the panel, which would explain why the order of colors is seemingly random rather than the typical ROYGBIV pattern of rainbows.

I would also get a 600 w led. This one on amazon is a really good deal. If you’re really hurting for cash get the 300 w version for about $80 I think.

Also, you could start in cheep 5 gallon buckets. Get good garden planter soil from Lowe’s or Home Depot. Put drain holes in buckets. You can also just use miracle grow as nutrient.

Read i love growing marijuana website too. You could get closer to 600 grams as a rookie with that light, and good soil.

u/_Prrr · 2 pointsr/succulents

I just got two of these and they're working really well. The plants are also turning a really pretty color.

I've read (I'll try to find where) that 6500k color temperature is great for growing succulents, but it doesn't promote flowering, you'd have to add in some with a lower color temperature, but the colored LED lights have the right colors for both growth and flowering. Some of the fancier/more expensive LED grow light even have a switch to control if you want the flowering lights on, the grow lights on, or both. Like this one.

u/Flesh_Tuxedo · 1 pointr/microgrowery

I use these 600w for my 4x4 tents, you could also put smaller light strips on the side if your worried about light coverage but this good beginner grow light in my opinion

u/ryanmich · 1 pointr/microgrowery

I have a 36x36x72 grow tent, and this is the light I use.

It has a setting for veg/flower, but I just keep them both on to maximize the amount of light they're getting.

u/St0f89 · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

What heat output??? they run very, very cool. When I went from HPS to led, I went from active cooling to passive cooling. Seriously, they're the best.

4x4 will be a little more pricey, but not by much.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B019ETLC7M/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_eGNJzbZ1PJ0B6

Something like this, or use 2 units and spread them out (that's what I'd do)

u/Sarey14 · 1 pointr/SavageGarden

currently my dad has a umm lets just call it a grow set up in our basement with some tomatoes and other plants and uses these lights https://www.amazon.com/VIPARSPECTRA-Reflector-Spectrum-Indoor-Plants/dp/B019ETLC7M/ref=sxr_rr_xsim1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=2286650982&pd_rd_wg=PlYlM&pf_rd_r=QK2GEMK706A18J4JAS4Q&pf_rd_s=desktop-rhs-carousels&pf_rd_t=301&pd_rd_i=B019ETLC7M&pd_rd_w=HoIIB&pf_rd_i=T5HO+light&pd_rd_r=X1ZQRN95JTK5Q4NYF720&ie=UTF8&qid=1480432928&sr=1 its a full spectrum grow light and i was thinking of just putting my plants down there for the winter, however there is not a ton of temperature variation from day to night down there, as it is a very controlled environment. I was thinking of getting something like that and just putting them in an old fishtank in their pots as a makeshift terrarium and then just removing them from the windowsill and just using the grow light, as there are massive temperature fluctuations and the window is pretty drafty. Any experience with the 'full spectrum' lights?

u/literocola431 · 1 pointr/bostontrees

a good starter pack of nutrients - a small sized grow tent that can fit 4 plants - a fan ventillation system that will handle the smell when you get to flowering - airpots if you want to grow from soil - or DWC hydro buckets if you want to go hydro note that these are pretty easy to DIY, buckets are $5 ea and pumps run $20-50. LED lights to grow with for $160 or you can skip up to the good stuff and go with Quantum Boards which are far superior - not on amazon You can do a lot of your own work on these boards to make them not as expensive.

After your get some seeds, either from bag seed or from an online seller, its really just a matter of paying attention to what the plants are doing and keeping a good schedule with your nutrients or watering. There is a ton of information online, both on reddit and elsewhere that can guide you with anything.

u/XdefeatsY · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

Thanks! I am using 2 different LED lights in my tent (Apollo 4'x4'). I started out with just this light for the first 3 weeks because I was short on cash and thought I'd try my luck at skimping on coverage with a cheap, Chinese light from Amazon. By week 3 or so, I had serious doubt about its ability to cover 4'x4' in flower. I bought this light to run in addition.

I generally recommend these guys over marshydro. They actually include their PAR charts and include a 3 year warranty. + Veg Bloom switches =)

u/Anakenyan · 1 pointr/microgrowery

you would want something pulling about 300 watts

https://www.amazon.com/VIPARSPECTRA-Reflector-R900-Spectrum-Indoor/dp/B019ETLC7M?th=1

this one (if you want a blurple)(make sure you select the 600w version) is rated to pull 260w so it wouldnt be a bad decision and is rated for a 90x90

some people recommend to split your watts into two lights so you can manage them for better light coverage to the lower parts of your plants, so splitting this into two 300w from the same brand also wouldnt be a bad idea. but the single light is definitely okay for beginning

u/Dont_throwaway420 · 1 pointr/microgrowery

Thanks for your feedback, and these are questions I should consider as I’m starting my grow.

I guess as I begin, I was hoping to find an ideal route that would allow me to adapt as I go. I have a decent amount of space for growing (an entire 10x10 room) and am willing to budget fairly for what’s needed. I just don’t want to overextend, as I will just grow for personal use (albeit, I do smoke quite a bit). I want to keep the plants “clean” and as healthy as possible, and hope to test out a few different strains. For lights - I’m willing to go as suggested, but initially considered LED (maybe something like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B019ETLC7M/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_0a0aAbD9B8DYH).

I’d love to connect and chat if you have more insight for a beginner grower. Thanks for your initial feedback!

I just bought VIPARSPECTRA Reflector-Series 600W which supposedly compares to a 600 watt HPS/MH

i doubt youll find much for high quality leds on amazon. 1000w hps/mh light would be the cheapest upfront cost but cost a lot with electricity. you can get those on amazon.

Good leds arent cheap but give better yields and lower energy costs. blurple leds(cheap purple led off amazon) work but arent any better than hps/mh.

a cheap 1000w HPS light will run about $200-$300.

if you wanna do 1000w of cheap leds its gonna be about $680 for 4x https://www.amazon.com/VIPARSPECTRA-Reflector-Spectrum-Indoor-Plants/dp/B019ETLC7M/ref=sr_1_1?s=lawn-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1526005356&sr=1-1&keywords=600w+viparspectra

High quality leds would be like $800+ such as 2x https://horticulturelightinggroup.com/collections/kits/products/320w-xl-qb324-led-kit?variant=8092027715676
