I havnt tried led yet either but im also interested in trying it 600 watt of led is alot of led tho lol but id also like to hear opinions about led aspecially those flower powers basically what i want to know is it better than HPS for flowering or if i use both will it increase my yield? Im strugglin to get over 100grams on 1 plant after curing yet other growers say they do it easily

Hi bones

How many plants do you intend to grow out under 600w of LED?

What unit did you settle on and what did it cost you? I would love to grow under LED, but it is way too expensive for me. What spectrum ratio did you choose and why?  :-peace

I can't see that product on their site? Does it give you a breakdown of the ratio of spectrums? Any UV or "Far Red"? You're going to get some frost for sure!

Please post comparison grow if you can.  I'd like to see how they fair up against the good old HID lighting.. I personally would add it to my hps lights just to add more spectrum, giving more penetration through the canopy and sides.

Im busy with my new room a little out of money but in 2 months or so I should be up and running, Im mixing a couple of 600w LED's and 600w HPS.

With the research I did its probably best to do some form of mixture, but ill keep updating when I start

Ah, shot. Thought you might be reluctant to share your investment amount. That is pretty pricey! But time will tell whether it pays off! Perhaps you could keep a detailed log of electricity consumption too? So we can see how the LED saves money in the long run. Some serious frost coming your way! Remember to keep the panel far enough away, light bleaching is very easily achieved with LED.  :-stoned
