Guys just a quick question regarding a light I’ve found for veg tent,it was a freebie but just need an educated opinion on wether it’s adequate enough for a small veg tent. It’s a 100w cw led type light. Pic attached!

@cth1980 hi mate

How big is your veg tent ?

im personally not familiar with that light so can say for sure but would imagine it will work for a small area like 2x2 foot and not more  

 

Time to pop some more beans 😗

@chillbert the tents 60*60*140cm mate so pretty small but the lights not specifically a growing light so was a little sceptical but it’s purely for germination/vegging and just keeping the mother cosy so hoping it’ll do the job. If not I’ll invest in a different one but just wanted to pick the brains of you guys 👍🏽

@chillbert also mate what’s the optimal temp to maintain a veg tent?? Mines currently around 14-15 degrees would a mother be ok at that?

@cth1980 

I would recommend a decent light even for veg but you can get away with less for sure.. worst case would be plants grow slowly and stretch a bit if the light isn’t strong enough or close enough.. 100w of led is enough for that space so go for it. You can always change it later if you decide you want something else..

idea temps are 20 - 25 approx Celsius for veg..  plants can cope/ survive lower temps fine but they grow much better and quicker if you can get in to the 20’s

your ambient temperature will rise as we head into spring / summer btw 

a mum would be just ok at 14-15, growth will be slower though and she’d be happier for sure a bit warmer.. 

hope this helps a bit

good luck bro 👍

@chillbert that’s spot on mate thank you 🙏🏽 

I’ve got a small oil heater with thermostat so I might pop that in there for the next month or so just until the outside temp increases slightly as the growth in there has seemed slightly slow with it around the 15 mark. They are in a wooden shed outside so that probably doesn’t help but it’s pretty solid and insulated. 👍🏽
