The Lush LED Lighting challenge

Recommended Posts

Great side by side thank you!  In my never ending attempt to perfect my grow closet I have been intrigued by the lush LEDs.  This would mostly be to 1) lower temps and 2) increase lumens. Are the LEDs cooled or do they just not get that hot? 

 

Right now I have a 400w HPS in my 2'3"x4'10"x7'3" closet and even with the fans things are still hot.  On the Lush website they say the dominator 2x could cover a 3x3 area intensely and comparable to a 1000w system.  Do you think this get too hot in my closet? 

EK here.

 

so I am running those LED's right here in the bedroom with me (in a tent of course) and I have a temp gauge in there on top of the lights. The highest temp shown is 80 degrees and the lowest is 70

 

In the HPS room yesterday the temperature topped out at 98 and the roots were 83. I have a 15,000 BTU Air Conditioner in there as well.

 

Now all the LUSH LED's come equipped with built in fans, and there for nothing extra needed except a small fan to move the plants and my 8 inch exhaust fan to maintain that temp.

 

So YES! Much cooler/

 

I hope this helps. Ask me more. :)

How far do you keep it from the top of the plants?

 

Well, good question. I try and stay about 18" off the tops. I have ran it closer in veg, but never within 12 inches, Ya gotta keep the lights up higher than normal.

Very nice!  Mine is currently at 24".  I'm gonna move it down a little. Great shots you grow some monsters.  Very inspiring!

What praise from someone I aspire to grow like, :) It means a lot. FITH

 

I'm going to grab a couple photos of the clones i topped the other day. :)

 

This one bigger plant in the one gallon container was the mother to these three, She needs to be thrown out. Its to big in my opinion to use for anything other than clones. I think she is past transplanting.

Im around day 40-45. I need to look at the thread and see if i can figure out just where I am at time wise.

 

Im at that stage where you could pull it, but if you wait say another 20-25 days it'll double up on size. I;ll throw photos up later,

 

Right now I need to go buy a fridge cause ours went out. Crap!

One thing I have noticed since moving from the 400w HPS to my Lush is the penetration of the light is better with the Lush.  My unders are looking much better and under my HPS they were usually just lark.

I noticed that as well. They are surprisingly pretty good at getting down low into the canopy. .
