So guys

I have a 1mx1m budbox Pro tent. I'm currently running a 600w hps but I feel being such a small space it could effect my yield and or quality due to the excess heat. I'm thinking of switching over to a spider farmer sf1000. 

Do you think this would be suitable for a 1m x 1m tent veg and flower? 

Thanks percys ✌

Don't let the manufacturers claims of "Can replace a 600W HSP" influence your decision because it really can't. That light might be able to do for some veg in that tent but there's not enough power there to cover your tent in flower.

SF1000PPFD

For flowering you should aim for around 700 par. There's a range to work within, I like to be higher than 550 and lower than 1100par.  According to Spider Farmers map at 14 inch height your center 45cm might be good for that. The SF2000 would be a bit better

SF2000PPFD

It will cover the meter width but wont cover the width very well. Only the center 45-50cm would really get the best light. To get the full coverafe needed for the best flowers the SF4000 is the best answer in that line.

SF4000PPFD

It can deliver the necessary illumination for the entire footprint.

**** Take a look at the HLG 350R light. Very high efficiency and low heat. It's a lot of light in a small package and we have a 10% discount code for Percy's members.

@monkeydo hmm perhaps I'm better off sticking with the hps in that case. I don't really wanna spend that kind of money on my second grow but thanks for the response bro

Have a look at HLG they have a good selection of lights, and go for ones that can be used for veg and flower.

May cost a little more but could save money in the long run.

I may be a bit biased as I have two HLG lights and they preform very well.

My friend put me on to them when I was looking at lights. Fist Bump  

cheers

You could turn your ballast down to 400 watts if it's dimmable get a 400 watt hps bulb you will still get good buds and yields with less heat and electricity I ran a 400 in a metre tent for a few years you would still be happy with your harvests

I own this light and it's most definitely too small for your 1mx1m tent.. Ideally you'd need at least 2 of them, probably 3 in there to get adequate coverage. I use the one I have in my tiny tent (30"x18"x36") mainly for micro grows. Speaking only of SpiderFarmer's gear tho, you'd need at least an SE3000 for your size of footprint. I also own this one and use it in my own 1m x 1m - I'm actually running a demo grow with it right now on my Youtube in the same sized tent as yours if you wanted to have a look.

A 600W HID would be a beast in there tho... 🤤
