    I'm super noob! However after siting and researching, the below setup is what I bought... today someone told me lighting is weak and it got me worries, Is this enough for a small grow op :bigjoint:


    80cmx80cmx180cm Greenthumb Tent
    300w Cree Cobs + Original MW driver HLG-320H-C1400B
    Silent Series 6" Fan (150mm)
    Carbon Filter - Air Scrubber 6" (150mm) / 300mm

    Learn your craft, and your setup. I dont know these lights but ive see people make magic out of very little. And if you find in time you need more light, atleast you still have this and can maximize your time with another area for a starter. Dont contemplate your setup, it just leads to buyers remorse and uneasy feelings. We all wanted to buy more lights believe that!

    You have almost 7 square feet of tent and 300W min of light or 43W a square foot of cobs light is good. Efficient light too. You should not have any lack of light problems.
    Best advice I can give is

    Get a PH pen either a good one or a few cheap ones.

    Less is better. Don't over water, water too often or over feed.

    It's winter here and if you are growing in a cold basement put something under your tent so it doesn't suck the heat out of your roots.

    Watch youtube you're a fan of growmou5 then look at his fav and liked videos as he has found a lot of great content.
    Cheers

    Looks good as long as you have the heatsinks and its much easier with solderless holders , a lot safer. You got plenty of light, enough to fry small plants, recommend you get a dimmer for the drivrr

    Same here, on some summer days it gets quite hot our record temp is 37.8 °C It also gets really cold.
    The average temperature swing for my area around 60 °C for the year and if you include windchill , humidity it's a 75 °C swing
    You are just going to need AC
