Q: Do you ship internationally?
A: Unfortunately, we do not offer international shipping options at this time. Legalities and cost are the reasons.
Q: What wattage HID’s do your lights compare to?
A: Any wattage HID can be matched or surpassed with roughly 60% of the wattage. A 600w photo boost build easily replaces a 1000w HPS.
Q: How many strips should I use?
The easiest way to size a build is to use .75-1 photo boost strip per square foot of grow area. Using 1 per sqft will put out 1000umol average ppfd or higher. Using .75 per sqft will put out ~800 average ppfd. This is based on standard 1400ma builds.
Q: What height should I hang my PLC light?
A: Ideal hanging height will vary slightly based on which light model is in question, and we refer you to the product page for more specific recommendations. For an quick rule of thumb, optimal intensity and coverage will usually fall between 18-28″.
