    Hello, how is everyone

    i was wondering the benefit of using an led to boost growth and possibly use less of my 600 watt hps, as its dimmable

    if i add say, a 50 watt led, or even 120 watt led to my 3x3x6 area will there be a benefit, or is 600 fine?

    if the led is added, would the cost of electricity added per month, worth it?

    what do you think?

    You only going to save about 50w-100w max. Plus you need to buy led's probably right? You have more than you need with a 600 in a 3x3. Crank that bitch and use a good fan. You would be better off using you money to completely replace your hps if you wanted to go led.

    Yea I see what your saying. I have the extra room to go up to 4x4x6 tent, I am seriously debating it.

    This is going to be my first grow with the 600 hps, my first grow was cfl, very disappointing, inadequate air ventilation, hopefully this time around ill be set,
    picking out seeds, still cant decide whether or not to use regular feminized seeds, or just autos continuously...any suggestions and/or input? this is my second grow indoors, 4th all around, going soil, willing to upgrade to 1000 hps if its worth a much better yield, the 600 hps i have 8 inch air cooled vent, that can hold both bulbs, and wattages. i just want to have things 100 percent before i start this grow :)

    thank you again for your reply! and anyone else feel free to chime in

    If you got the room and the ambition to upgrade possibly, then get the 4x4. Even if you don't use it all right away, you will like it better. Easier to cool too.

    yeah thats what is exactly on my mind, the ventilation, gonna go the 8 inch air cooled route just to be safe, i was told 6 would do the trick, but nothings wrong with to much ventilation right?
