Hi everyone,
I'm new here so please take it handy with me :)
I was recommended to join here by a mate of mine , said yous are a bunch of chill lads and gals here and always helpful.

So yeah, basically I had few small grows few years back with hps in coco and soil but then stopped. Now trying to get back into growing my own but I wanna try LEDs this time around. And doesn't matter how much I read about them or Google them I will not get my head around then tbh. There way 2 much to them , or I'm just slightly slow =D.

So first question is, what's the best led growlight you can get from Amazon uk below 300e ? I'll be using 1.2x1.2 tent. I haven't bought fans etc yet, wana get light sorted first and get few seeds popped. I be using coco and probably autos.

Any feedback would be appreciated, especially from someone who has used cheaper LEDs as theres obviously a reason why some are 100e and others are 2100 lol

Well that's obvious haha, and I would go with HPS again but where im living heat would be a massive issue, iv a Chinese below me and all the heat from kitchen comes straight through the floor. Flat is around 20c all the time and now with that heat I'm barely alive myself neva mind when iv 2 600w going around the clock again :(

ill steer u in the right direction if u need some help or a unit , i can tell u that you will need a minimum of £550 to cover a 1.2 x1.2m   reasonably,  that woulds be a 600hps and better match and for a 1k hps match about £700  my advice ?  id buy half of the 700 solution and add to it as u get more cash , if u wana chat pm me and ill send u my phone number and i use whats app for photos and real time chat
