    Today, i got Mars pro II 120. The shipping is super fast. Discreet package. Cannot wait to turn on the light. Wow, it is super bright. I love the purple color.

    So, I'm just curious about the light How many watts does it draw and what's the angle of dispersion for the LED chips. I grew using a Lumigrow 320 which drew 300 watts from the wall and 120 degree dispersion and it kicked ass over a 750 watt MH setup I had previously used. In fact when some of my buddies who were also growers saw it in operation and the results the first time were amazed. I had this in a 1m x 1m x 2.5m grow tent inside a closet and had harvested more than my wife and I could possibly smoke between cycles.

    The grow tent was used to control air flow (so I could use a carbon filter to eliminate smell) and light control so I could keep stray light from going into the growing chamber during flowering. I was growing in coco using non organic nutes, balanced to about 5.4 ph.

    Good luck with the grow, there's nothing like what you grow yourself once you get the hang of it

    Mostly 1000w HPS with dimmable electronic ballast in 8 light flower room. I started testing out LEDs for veg. t5 fluorescent for clones. Lotta people are checking out LEDs lately. If you can afford the initial cost, there are some really good ones on the market that can compete with HID lighting.

    Some you might want to check out: gravitas 1kw double ended, 1200w Spydr LED, 630w DE CMH, 315W CMH, 1000W single end HPS or MH w/digital ballast/ Those are some of the more common used lights in the industry. People are moving away from the single ended bulbs and to double ended and leds generally.

    Smart meter's indeed carry some additional risk, some places might offer the option to reject to having a smart meter installed and they have to do a other non smart meter. I have no idea if this makes any differnce in recognizing the electrical signature though.

    Thanks for the knowledgeable comments. Looks like i need to learn more about this industry. Lol.
    So far so good for the Mars pro II 120. The blue color light makes me feel relaxed

    Any canadian here? Marshydro is celebrating the legalization on their website. Just for canada growers. I would like to suggest you to try Pro II series. I like the Pro II 120 that i am using.

    You have to have the pics hosted on the net somewhere else (Bluelight doesn't host the files)then you can link them in a post using the icon that looks like a picture using the URL of the file hosted offsite.

    Thanks, man. This is very troublesome. Other forums can make it easily.

    Almost one month for Veg stage. When i need to trun on the flowering button for my babies? I learnt the veg stage should be around 40 Days. If i don't offer enough red light for the plants, what will happen? Will they not flowering? I hope to get some help.
    I found that the coverage of Pro II 120 is not suitable for 2x4 grow tent. Maybe i will need another small light to cover them well?

    Today. i turn on the flower button. It is almost one and half month for veg.
    Learnt a lot from other growers, it is the time to switch it into flowering.
    The pro II 120 did great job in Veg stage. I also learnt that the purple light cannot do well in flower stage. Is it true?
    Hope it will not let me down.
