hello. i've been smoking for years but newer to growing. For cost reasons, I am using LEDs instead of HPS. I am not having great results, good but not great. Any suggestions or comments are welcomed. Is anybody else growing with LEDs? my 1000w light is about 18 inches away from plants (2)

might have been advertised as a 1k panel but i doubt it outputs anywhere near that

leds can definitely do a great job but the type of light/spectrum will greatly increase your yield and potency

 

either way welcome to the wonderful growing world 🙂
