Brand new to growing and working on a budget.  If I can have enough success with the first couple attempts I'll look at upgrading equipment.  As of now I have this tent kit off amazon being delivered next week with some girl scout autoflower seeds right behind it.  I'm assuming the tent and exhaust system will be good enough, but am clueless on if the the included light would be strong enough for 3 plants.  If not I'm open to suggestion for upgrading the light.  Appreciate all feedback, thanks!

Complete System:

VIVOSUN Grow Tent Kit Complete, 48"x24"x60" Grow Tent Complete System with VS1000 Led Grow Light, 4 Inch 203 CFM Inline Fan, Carbon Filter and 8ft Ducting Combo

Specs of the light:

LOWER COSTS &HIGH EFFICIENCY LIGHT: VS1000 LED grow lights use the latest LED plant light technology including Samsung LM301H Diodes, high-energy efficiency with 2.75 umol/J; Extremely high output but consumes only 100W of electricity, making it more efficient than traditional HID lamps and other plant lamps on the market

Hi & welcome to Percys Smile

Yeah, that kit would get you 3 plants...light is quite respectable in its output even at only 100w from the wall, Sosan are Meanwells main competition so driver is good too, 3 year warranty helps

Welcome to Percy’s mang.

My concern is the coverage for the light and even the ultimate intensity. From what I see and read, one VS1000 covers half of that tent space for flowering at minimum PAR for flowering.

25CBA4D9 035E 4288 981D E2114F4EA15D

24 inches high for seedling, 18 inches high for Veg, and 12 inches for flowering according to the chart and sufficient light for max buds is only about 60x60 max. Ultimately it’s going to take 2 lights imo.

Hey KTF, I have a marshydro 24x48 and a tsl2000 and it’s a perfect set up for 3 autos imo. Not sure how much the package linked is but I know mars had a sale recently and the 24x48 is generally cheaper than the tsw2000 combo.

 

I pulled 269g off 3 autos on my first grow so they definitely work well.

Yes, that is the light that Zombie Nation and Rufio are talking about. It’s a proven combo with a 2x4 tent (120x60x60). Another light that is getting excellent reviews here is the Migro Array 240. It’s a little more expensive than a Mars light but apparently they are excellent lights for that size tent.

@ktfcommander yes that’s what I have man. 2x4 aren’t a super common size so generally a bit cheaper. I just didn’t have the room for a 4x4 and if I keep pulling 200g+ harvest should keep me wel supplied between runs. 

if you’d like can send you some pics of the setup and the plants? You can check my diary’s in the soil section either 👌
