There ya go! I prefer the bar style lights anyways. I’ve heard good things about the fce4800. I have a spider farmer se5000 myself and love it. Another affordable option that uses the newest Samsung diodes is this one:
For my 4'x4', I just bought a Viparspectra KS5000 on sale with HighiganKS 3% discount code. Get one.
I would get one of these and see if the light intensity was the problem after all. https://www.amazon.com/UNI-T-Illuminance-Photography-Photometer-Measurement/dp/B09PDGX69B/ref=pd_aw_ic_dpcp_att_2_m_1?pd_rd_w=ExyXm&content-id=amzn1.sym.d5680d00-6912-40c6-a74a-2507b093bffe&pf_rd_p=d5680d00-6912-40c6-a74a-2507b093bffe&...
This light is a great deal. 400w for $200 with lm301b. I have the 240w version and love it. https://www.amazon.com/Yuanhui-Spectrum-Dimmable-Commercial-Foldable/dp/B09KTKWFVD/ref=dp_prsubs_1?pd_rd_w=XWWbY&content-id=amzn1.sym.44119f90-4fa4-4a33-ab01-0966313c50e0&pf_rd_p=44119f90-4fa4-4a33-ab01-0966313c50e0&pf_rd_r=FWJ1M0XA2EX...
I would get this one. $200 and 400w. Lm301b diodes. I have the 240w model and love it. https://www.amazon.com/Yuanhui-Spectrum-Dimmable-Commercial-Foldable/dp/B09KTKWFVD/ref=pd_aw_ci_mcx_mh_mcx_views_0?pd_rd_w=Vgh3V&content-id=amzn1.sym.94af6381-06a2-4b66-b860-04718aaeefef&pf_rd_p=94af6381-06a2-4b66-b860-04718aaeefef&pf_...
Heres the best deal i know of for lm301. Its a 400w for $200. I have the 240w version with lm381 and i love it. The 400 will be even better. https://www.amazon.com/Yuanhui-Spectrum-Dimmable-Commercial-Foldable/dp/B09KTKWFVD?ref_=ast_sto_dp&th=1&psc=1
I just got one of these and its amazing. You could just get 2 and save money and time. I know of a 400w for $200 that has lm301b diodes it you are interested in that. Ill link it as well. Aslo the TmLapy 240w looks decent as well. No need to get an expensive light to grow basil. I use these lights to grow pot and love them.
Just bought this one and it's way better than expected. 120w https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B09MJW3G8L?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title
400w. I have the 240w version and its amazing. https://www.amazon.com/Yuanhui-Spectrum-Dimmable-Commercial-Foldable/dp/B09KTKWFVD?ref_=ast_sto_dp&th=1&psc=1
Whats your budget? I love these 100w for $41. Perfect for 1 plant. Its got a remote driver which is good. https://www.amazon.com/Spectrum-UNIT-FARM-Coverage-Hydroponic/dp/B08JCQ6SGD if you can spend more I have better suggestions.
PPM/EC/TDS Meter like this Meter I've used this one for years and it's reliable. If it goes out of wack... you can calibrate them easily.
It has automatic settings and the whole top opens, it can also sync to your phone.

The Sonlipo SPC2500 is a really good affordable LED grow light. I’ve used it for a few runs now both in soil and DWC and it’s preformed great every time. I recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable LED for a 3x3 or a 2x2. I’m not sponsored or being given anything by Sonlipo I paid full price for this light.
Congrats, love seeing growers getting some flowers outta their first time row.
I personally rocked some mars hydro for about 3 grows before I moved on. Like synaptic said, “Ignore the haters”.
My old mars hydro. I had 2 of these.
I gave them to a friend along with some clones, now he’s getting started in our fun hobby.
question for ya. I know your a coco guy, are you using any products like mykos or recharge?
I had no idea you could mix so many things with coco. Can you add things like calcined clay https://www.amazon.com/Montmorillonite-Calcined-Bonsai-Amendment-Quarts/dp/B01LWWLSVX to help control ph and improve cation exchange?
I use a Blue Labs Combo meter so it has both. I highly recommend it, you want to know how much you're feeding your plants, and how often, for best results.
If you've switched to RO water, then yes, you will need to supplement both iron and zinc. You can find a bottle of chelated iron/zinc on Amazon here: : https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0063PG40G/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_J1WRKZAN7T1Q4WYYKYYP

No problem. So I don't have a video but I have a link to an Exhale Instant CO2 bag you can hang up: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07ZTX6CVY/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_TCK3HM3CA3P46EKHN9HM?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
I didn't use instant because i could wait for the gradual increase over time for it to activate. For Small spaces like 4x4, I have one bag and I can feel very comfortable knowing it only emits a low and level C02 flow.
Okay so I've struggled too, alot lol. What I do now is take my cutting stick them directly in water, I have a tray from burpee I use that's really awesome at starting seeds and now propagating https://www.burpee.com/gardening-supplies/seed-starting/superseed-seed-starting-tray-16-xl-cell-prod500861.html. I fill this with promix moisture control potting mix. Cut my cuttings at a node at a 45 degree angle. Dip in rooting hormone https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BJBSHWC?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share. Then make a hole, not to deep, and stick my cutting in and pinch the medium it tight around the base.water throughly ( water after you put the cutting this helps set it in place). They are in a box I made under a 30 watt cob led from tractor supply with a fan and that's it. Let it DRY good between watering and you're all set. Any questions you have don't hesitate to ask. Try to keep Temps at around 80 with the of at least 60.
