Hi all,

I'm switching to White LED's in a 32"x32"x63" Nepenthes grow tent and purchased two Yescom 225 White LED panels. From everything I read, I can't determine if this will be overkill, or not enough? Should I mix it up with supplemental red/blue LED's, or is white fine by itself?

grow tents are AWESOME!
I got one from hydrobuilder a few months back
and it hase been amazing :)
doubled my grow space,
and I too use different types of grow lights,
seems too help with my flytraps color and health.

What kind of grow lights do you have? How much space do they cover?

Thanks!

so I use LED grow lights from HOME DEPOT,
and LED grow lights from PETCO, ( aquarium lights)
the ones from Petco I think are better in that
you can switch the light spectrums,
anyway as far as light coverage goes not
sure I keep all my plants within a few inches of my lights ,
I have about five lights running,
its a 3x3 size grow tent.
