  • growcraft x6 600w vs 1000w

    Posted by bongo on October 22, 2020 at 12:08 am

    I have a smaller veg tent, using a cheap spider farmer 2000, but i wanted something better for flowering.

    I don’t mind spending the 1300 if needed, I believe rob is now using the 600w, just wondering if i have the choice, should i go with the 1000 or is it just over kill?

    5×5 grow tent.

    also, If i didn’t want to spend that much right now. what flowering light/s should i get?

    I was considering the cost of upgrading, compared to just plunking down the money and getting the good lights right away. but if i can get good lights at a lower price, that would be great too.

    I guess i just need someone to tell me what to buy, lol
    Im in my 4th week of veg, im at 50% power on my spider2000 in my 2×4 tent. Im not sure if i should be at 75% or 100% or if the spider lighting will work all the way through flowering? my guess, is that i should turn it up to 75% next week. then 100% the week after, then go to a larger light for flowering.

    so i was also considering. keeping the 2×4 and spider just for veg, then getting a 5×5 as a flower only tent, but if i do that, i will need to add lights. and what light to buy is my quadrium.

    any advise?

    Thanks
    Jim

    Unless your using Co2 you don’t need the 1000. At least that is what Austin at Chilled told me. I just bought 4 of the 600 for my tent.

    I have a x5 600 in a 4×4 and it is the best money I ever spent.
