How does HPS not compare on initial costs ?

Allegedly Decent LED’s will cost you your first born.

I was given two 600 Watt Viparspectra panels courtesy of a friend. He had used smaller ones before and gotten great yields.

Thank you. I appreciate it. They look like good panels, and will give a good coverage area in my space. I am looking forward to sharing potential results.

Wouldn’t one be enough in a 1.5m tent ?

use them for veg ,,,my advice is to then replace them with a 600w HPS. It'll give you time to have the money for the HPS.

Two of those viperspectra leds won't give full coverage in flower

A magnetic ballast ,globe and shade should be well less than two hundred dollars.

But will easily cover itself in the extra yield you'd get
No Billy not enough coverage even with two

Really SE ? Surely those two 600w LED’s replace 6 x 1000w HPS’s ? lol

Similar coverage to the Meizhi can't remember exactly but something about two and a half foot by three foot for one light .

That's for flower ,,veg was much larger.

I think two in a 1.5 x 1.5 tent will be a great spread/distribution of light. I think one on its own would be underpowered.

Noise may be an issue insofar I don't want it to be excessive. My PC often whirls up pretty loud, so I know fans can crank out air and unfortunately with that, sound. The spot I have set aside is somewhat private. I don't have any close neighbours, and the exhaust window is private. I think the thick walls internally will dampen a large amount of sound.

Coco's high-intensity management was that deterrent for me, especially in my first grow. I would like to set up a fully managed drip system if I do run Coco. I will keep investigating fan options. Keep me posted on your grow. Looking forward to seeing us both around more. :)

Coco is easy. You do need a TDS and PH meter though. If you have big pots you can get away not watering for a while.
For automated watering, I've got a 40L box filled with water and nutes, 2 aquarium pumps hooked up to bunnings tubing and hydro halos. Even when I'm home I let it run automatically so I have confidence of it working when I'm away.
