Haha woops , mh is definitely great for Vege I ran it for the first week of flower to prevent stretching as well but still stretched a lot
 
I'm at 50w per square foot now. Should be sweet. This is from first day of flip @ 33days from sprout

The luma 1200s are 350w? Times that by 2=700w. I dunno seems a bit light on wattage. Probably need 4 of them. With 2 it'll have you at about 16 or 17watts per square foot. Chuck a 600 hps in the middle maybe? I dunno.

Has anyone actually completed a crop with the lumas? And any idea on grams per metre yield?

I guess it depends on what your after ay. 700watts of citizen cobs in a 2mx2m tent ain't gonna do your setup justice. I had a 2x2 a few years back and had 2 1000w hps in it did the trick. They'll crack you some buds to puff on n flick but yeh I dunno. Those 2 lights would be perf in a 1.2 tent. Just my opinion and not tryna bad buzz your setup. Good luck with your grow

algud brother i know im gonna make mistakes and im all for learning after all is my first time im just sharing what ive been told from other people and if i can get something like this or even close on my first grow ill be happy then i can build from there and ive messed up when telling you the size of my tent the size is 2m x 1.2m x 2m so i can see thats definately not enough light for a 2x2 as the luma 1200 does a 1.2m square shouldnt be too bad but we will see thanks for the info though brother (:

What they said they produced looks great just hope it’s legit , really hard to tell which reviews are legit and what is just people promoting a product been researching hard on the leds might just grab one this week , looks like the Samsung leds are definitely good just the rest of the led seems like the hard part , let me know how it turns Out.... if you have a 1.2 x 2 m you could run the luma on one side and a 600w hps on the other Side

yea im trying to go full led too keep heat problems down so i dont need to get a heavy air / ventalation more because of noise as i have neighbours literally on the otherside of the wall plus silent fans are so expensive im definately gonna swap my 2nd luma out and go for the samsung or even splurge and go for the helios range

The hlg range looks solid so does the black dog but both over 1500 for a light to do a 1.2x1.2 the Samsung from herbals looks ok much cheaper as long as it’s all genuine Samsung LEDs should be decent , I’ll check out Helios if you reckon it’s good?
 
helios uses the samsung leds but cover more spectrum and draw more from the wall ive also gone with herbal because they have afterpay/ zippay and you can also get a further 10% off using code KGFAMILY on checkout also free and discreet shipping plus the specials at the moment are pretty crazy but this is still my first grow indoor so i dont know much this is what they say on website

The Samsung is good. I don't know how it finishes as I chucked a 400hps in with it. I understand the heat issue but Fark that heat is and was missed dearly by me this last grow. Yup I ended up chucking a heater in and then boom humidity issues. Then turn my fan up boom back to temp issues lol. Next is a dehumidifier. I'm looking at them helios too but am certainly thing bout going back to hps. Big lamps. Heaps of heat fans noise lol faaarkn hell

It’s 350/400 down here in Christchurch Did outdoor here last year but struggled to finish before the frost hit , going to run autos outdoor this year there’s some very decent ones that can yield about 4 or 5 oz each so it’s a nice quick option to avoid the frost

If anyone can recommend a fast finishing strain for outdoors down here would be awesome , I did have pretty good success with Girl Scout cookies last year flowered early and fast top quality but the yield was pretty low
