Sooooo how does that light compare to a 1000w hps? Will I need 6 or more?
This light does not compare at all to 1000w hps. I would say it would replace around 250 watts of HPS. I consider a 1000 watt HPS good for a 4x4, I would put 4 of these Mars lights in to a 4x4. That said it seems to be doing fine in the 2.5 x 2.5 tent that comes with the kit. The true test will be flowering under it.

you’re going to be pleasantly surprised. Probably like was. Bud size just won’t compare to your HLG with all that extra power. That comes with the price tag, but for the price of the gear..Can’t lose.

I am good with this setup so far. Plants seem to be doing their thing and are happy. As an entry level kit this may turn out to be a decent deal, just have to see how well it does when flowering.

Looks like a defoliated plant next to a good ol Wiz’s “Didn’t so shit” plant. Either way. They both look healthy as hell. Great job so far.
Thanks man. Yeah that Cheesecake is just taking off on the stretch. I figure the other should take off soon. Glad those Epsom salts sorted out the issue with the Cheese plant.

If you ever feel like you are feeding, and you feel like you’re feeding enough.. but you still see a deficiency.. try fish shit. Literally used it just because I was NOT tossing another dose of nutes in her water. The next day she was so green!!

Thought I would update my earlier post and photo of one I grew entirely in the same tent/TS1000 kit. !0 weeks tomorrow since the 12/12 flip. Will likely chop today.
