    Sup Riu, I'm new to led and recently came across a besthydro 800w cob led. I have it in a 2×2 space it's actual pull from wall is like 236w will that be enough for a decent yeild, 3 plants maybe 4 in 2gal pots organic soil and ferts.

    its enough for a 2x2. a more efficient led could do the same for 140ish watts

    It will work..

    2x2 is tough to grow in. I have one and it's my primary grow space. If you want four plants it would be best to grow 12/12 from seed in 1 gallon pots.

    I have 1 plant in a 1 gallon right now and it pretty much takes up the tent. Last grow I did 1 plant in a hempy and it pretty much blew the zippers off of my tent. :)

    2 gallon hempy topped several times and trained. 2x2 tent. 2 good COBs running at 180w.

    Oh thx.... Yea, it's coming out alright. I've had N issues from the start with her, but the buds look fine so I'm not sweating it.. That's a Bubba Kush, I originally popped 4 seeds to grow in 1 gallon pots in the 2x2, but 3 turned out to be males.

    I have two vero 29 v7 Cobs run at 1400mhz I think... I can pump it up to about 200 watts from the wall, but I typically run it a bit lower. As soon as you start driving the COBS hard heat becomes an issue... at 160 w pull from the wall heat is not much of an issue,

    If you are interested, CObKits (See member above) can hook you with a good cob set up for excellent prices. Also check out Quantum boards... They would rock a 2x2.

    I'd probably just stick with the light you have now for a few grows then upgrade. Use the light you have now for Veg,
