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.Β

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 isΒ percys !Β 

I’d agree with James’ adviceΒ 

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 basicallyΒ 

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

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

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

Β 

Time to pop some more beans πŸ˜—

  • @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 πŸ™‚
