Mars hydro sp3000
Just got a bargain on a sp3000. Do people rate this light? Any good reviews on this light?
I'm also interested if this light is good, I currently have a mars hydro 600w in my 3x3 grow space and seems like it's been working well for me up to this point.
@smg hi mate , I’m currently using the SP 3000 in my 2x4 and seems to work well for the space , though I’m new to growing and this is the first light I’ve used so wouldn’t take my opinion to the bank tbh 😉 don’t really rate Mars that much as a company though to be honest as i did get burned by them on the bank transfer. If you have any questions about yours though mate when you have it let us know and I might of already come across the issue 👍

@beardedporkchop the TS600 might be a bit small to cover a 3x3. It will do fine for veg but it’s a little small to flower that space properly. For flower I like to run most strains at 700-1000 PAR. The TS600 isn’t strong enough to push that level of illumination.
This PAR map is based on a 2x2 and as you can see the light level around the edges isn’t very high. If you add another six inches all around that, the light level will be even lower out there. You will get flowers but they might not be as big or dense as you hope for. To properly cover that 3x3 area you are going to need 200-300 watts of actual led power. The TS600 is only 100 watts.
If it were me I’d be tempted to add a second TS600 or something similar to that tent

@monkeydo thanks so much your level of knowledge is unmatched! I actually want to get another light now so I can continue my flowering stage from here, I am going to do some more research and find out which light I am going to go with,
