California Lightworks SolarStorm 440W LED Grow Light with UVB

The SolarStorm 440 is a very powerful LED based grow light. It features 88 high power 5 watt LED emitters for a total nominal power of 440 watts (88 x 5). The 440 also features a unique supplemental UV-B mode which is essential to develop higher potency. The sun naturally contains large amounts of UVB. HID lights do not deliver any significant levels of UVB. No other LED grow light in the market covers the UVB spectrum because LED diodes are narrow band and focus their light in a narrow spectrum. SolarStorm employs unique T8 fluorescent UVB bulbs integrated into the fixture with a separate control. The UVB bulbs are typically turned on during final few weeks or “finishing” phase of the grow cycle to boost the potency of the final harvest. The SolarStorm 440 is designed to replace a 600W HPS or Metal Halide system. It is great for medium size or home grow operations. It can be used on light movers to cover larger areas and get even better results. Learn about this LED here.

Third Roommate 8' x 8' California Lightworks LED Complete Grow Tent Package Setup Guide

Tent Setup

Be sure to carefully measure the space you intend to setup the tent in. It should be slightly larger than the tent itself to allow for an easy setup. You should also plan your ventilation setup as you will want room on one or more sides of the tent for ducting. We give some examples of ventilation setups below.

You should have a space available at least this size:

  • 8ft wide X 8ft deep X 7ft Tall

Setting up the tent is a simple.
Just follow the included instructions.
You can review them here.

Choose a Growing Media/Method:

Depending on your intended use of this tent, you can choose from the following growing methods available at Hydrobuilder:

Lighting Setup

The lighting equipment included with this package provides ample light for all stages of growth for this size of growing space. As the plants grow, adjusting the height of the light fixtures is essential to provide the maximum light while not burning the plants. The included adjustable hangers make adjustments easy. The rule of thumb here is to set the light height to what you think is correct, then place your hand at the plant canopy level with the light on and feel if it gets too hot in 30secs. If it’s too hot for your hand, it’s too hot for your plants.

Setting up the lighting equipment included with this package is simple:

  • Before plugging in your lighting ensure that you have a properly grounded outlet of the correct voltage to use.
  • Plan out which of the cord ports you will use in the tent based on your installation.
  • Install the bulb into the reflector bulb socket.
  • Hang the light with the included hangers from the crossbar support beams of the grow tent, and adjust to the correct height.
  • Be sure to place the ballast in a safe location where it cannot get wet or be tripped over. It’s best to keep the ballast outside of the tent as they can generate some heat when in use, and securly mounting the ballast to a wall with drywall screws is preferred when possible.
  • Pass the lamp cord through the appropriate grow tent port and plug it into the ballast.
  • If using the included timer, set the desired "on" and "off" time frame and plug the timer into the socket.
  • Now plug the ballast into the timer and you’re done!

For this tent package, our suggested light configuration looks like this:

Ventilation Setup

Proper ventilation is essential to healthy plant growth, and proper filtration is equally essential to clean the air and kill all odors. You should be replacing the air in your tent at least once every 5 minutes when the lights are on. Please note that CFM performance of a fan is affected by the length and path of ducting.

The ventilation equipment included in this package sufficiently meets the CFM requirements of the tent. With 25ft of high performance ducting included, you have plenty to create a custom routing that best fits your installation. The included Hydrobuilder variable fan speed controller helps to give you more control over CFM and fan noise.

Your ventilation can be set up in a number of ways. Here are some possible configurations:

What you will still need:

To get up and running you will need a few more things, mainly a growing container/media setup, plants, water, and nutrients. We covered the growing setup choices above, for nutrients we offer a wide selection from all of the industry leaders. View our selection of nutrients.

If this is your first time growing, and aren't sure where to start, we recommend sticking with soil and containers. It's the easiest to learn with as the soil is more forgiving, allowing you to make small mistakes with nutrition that would otherwise cause issues in hydroponic systems. It's also really cheap and easy to setup. If you choose this route, the Fox Farm Trio Soil is a great nutrient starter kit to use. If you'd like a more advanced nutrient plan that includes micronutrients then The Dirty Dozen kit by Fox Farm is the one we recommend.

If you have any questions about your tent setup or component installation please give us a call, we are happy to help you get started! You can reach us at 888-815-9763, Monday thru Friday, 8am - 5pm PST.
