I never grew but i have severe anxiety and glaucoma so imma grow 5 autoowering plants under 300w led light. I heard they can see me with helis but is it true for a small grow in a tent 90x90x185cm?

like @GBAUTO says^^^ that's too many under a 300W light. Depending on the footprint of the light, that'll do 2, or at most 4 in a 2 plant x 2 plant configuration.

Not sure what the laws/penalties are where you're at. They're probably not going to get you with heat signature in a heli, but they will get pretty stinky, especially during the final 4 weeks of flower. I'd be more concerned about nosy neighbors and visitors to the home saying something. Be sure to have good odor control.

Good luck! Peace :peace:

300W is nothing. A flat screen TV uses 150W. A high-end gaming PC will put out 300W under load. There is regular halogen lighting that draws 500W.

Even if they were looking for your 300W heat signature, it would not stand out in any way.

"No smell, no sell, no tell." is the rule to follow, don't worry about the measly light.

Those small portable room heater is 1500 watts or more, no ones getting cops showing up for that.

Anxiety and pot growing don't necessarily align themselves in a positive way..........I'd be giving it a second thought.
