CMH (Ceramic Metal Halide) also known as LEC (Light Emitting Ceramic), or CDM (Ceramic Discharge Metal Halide) are various names for the same technology, which has taken the industry and growers by storm recently. With only 315 watts or 630 watts, these CMH grow lights use less energy than traditional HPS lighting, produce minimal heat, but have the spectrum closest to the sun. CMH Indoor Grow Setups are the happy medium for most growers looking for the best quality of light, without the upfront cost of a high-end LED. CMH Lighting provides great lumen maintenance while delivering a very high PPF and PAR/Watt all at a lower wattage than traditional HID. With increased UV (UltraViolet), and a high 90+ CRI, CMH Grow Light are a stellar choice for any home grow, commercial grow or any application in between.
What Size CMH or LEC Grow Tent Kit Should I Go With?
This all depends on the number of plants you want to grow and the amount of space you have to set up your grow tent. We offer LEC Grow Tent Packages in sizes ranging from 2’ x 2’ to 10’ x 20’ with the ability to grow up to 64 plants or more. The most popular size for beginners are 3’ x 3’, 4’ x 4’ or 5’ x 5’, but we include all you need to have success with any size Ceramic Metal Halide Grow Tent Kit you go with. Plus, we offer lifetime grower support to help you with any questions you may have during your growing cycle.
Should I Grow In A Hydroponic System Or In Soil?
Growing in soil is the best option for new growers due to the simplicity and buffers that the soil has, which helps prevent overfeeding of nutrients and helps keep pH levels in check. If you want more explosive growth and possibly a better quality end product and larger yields, consider upgrading to our Hydroponic Tent Kits, which come with a Root Spa or Current Culture Under Current Deep Water Culture System.
Our LEC Grow Tent Kits Include:
- Grow Tent - Contained, sealed and ready to grow up to 64 plants depending on the size you go with. Choose between a premium Gorilla Grow Tent or Covert Grow Tent.
- Grow Light - Ceramic Metal Halide Grow Light, Light Timer, Light Hangers
