Hi new 2 the group from the UK recently purchased my 1st second hand grow box inside size 40cm x 40cm x 100cm height and it came with a 60 watt led light. Can someone please let me know if this would be suitable as you'll see below there is not much blue leds mostly red does this seem right?

@cannabisukscot Welcome to Percys mate. I dont think that light will be good enough for growing a plant. You will need something a little stronger.

Welcome to Percy’s mate. Never used a grow box before. Going to have to keep them real small and compact.

I would say you can grow a plant in that box for sure.

You could even do one with that light but you should expect that Quantity and Quality are low.

I would recommend to use that box with some LSF Lights for veg and

get a 60x60x150cm tent and put a Mars Hydro TS1000 in it for flower and you can get easily 100g and more.

Plants are like children - always surprising you.

Hi mate, welcome to the home growers oasis that is percys ! 

I’d agree with James’ advice 

Possible to do a micro grow in 1m but more height (and space ) would be desirable for ease ..

that light is just a little dated technology now and there are much better options around.. it will grow a plant but your buds won’t be nearly as good as they could be basically 

Mars do excellent value for money lights.. as recommended above 

I use migro now which are also excellent but a bit pricier 

Check out the diaries here for micro grows and you can see what can be achieved ! 
good luck 

 

Time to pop some more beans 😗

  • @chillbert thanks for the info not actually sure the age of it looks American with the sockets as you see below. Just looking to grow something for myself and to keep it as discreet as possible. Need to get a hydroponics set up and a new filter. Looking forward to my 1st grow 🙂

@cannabisukscot

I got a grow wardrobe I used years back .. with a shit led .. worth getting the light right to maximise your potential for sure 👍

just out of interest what’s your thinking behind going hydro?

a hand watered soil or coco set up will be quieter if max stealth is desirable 

given your limited space hydro could lead to biggest yield possible but is more work than soil/coco

good luck bro and keep us updated on your progress 👍

@chillbert Reason for planning on the hydroponics setup is as you said maximizer yield.

Thankfully the box seems well insulated and is really quiet the fan on the ufo light is load when the doors open but once shut practically can't hear it. Is more of the space issue thats the problem the box just looks like a metal cabinet so doesn't draw attention like a grow tent would planning on keeping it in my garage out the way to be safe.

  • Looking at lights now would an all in one full spectrum 150w non adjustable without veg/bloom switches  be enough or would I need to go for more wattage with the option of separate veg/bloom modes?

150w of modern leds is enough for that space.. all in one spectrums with a dimmer switch (or not) are prob better than a veg or bloom mode type one  

no dimmer no problem, though desirable - you can always move the light up and down 

Have you a particular model in mind?

soemone here may have experience of it and could recommend it or not? 

have fun getting your stealth grow set up bro 👍

Ps worth checking out the migro channel on utube - reviews many led lights of all budgets
