    After spending several days watching videos and trying to sort through reviews, I came to the conclusion that it was better to build what I needed myself. I have three 6,000K 10,000 LUM LED headlight bulbs. The 200 watt transformer runs $43, and I found three 10"x10"x3" stainless mixing bowls for twenty bucks to act as the reflectors. I figure that two of those units on a three foot bar mounted five feet off the floor should be sufficient for peppers and potatoes in a 3×4 space. Your thoughts on this? Suggestions welcome, regarding distance from the plants et al.

    Will my plants produce fruit like tomatoes or bush beans if I use the white/blue light?

    0:35 that voice crack tho iconic!!!!

  8. Kamila Smith on December 8, 2020 at 9:35 pm

    Insane!!

  9. Green Is Good on December 8, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    Make more videos on light growing please talk

  10. jean martin on December 8, 2020 at 9:44 pm

    Do plants need darkness too? Or can I just leave the lights on all night?

  11. AG Moore on December 8, 2020 at 9:45 pm

    I thought for sure you had a book out. I checked the website but didn’t see it

  12. Valerie Sanchez on December 8, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    2′ distance for veg.
    1′ distance for flowering.
    Great method for grow lights.
    Saved you all from hearing a lecture.
    😆

    Remembers back to a couple times I broke florescent lights…..wonders WTH does that gas do exactly? (Might explain a few things–lol)

  14. Green Is Good on December 8, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    Are they normal led

  15. Steve Allen on December 8, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    I think the best arrangement of a grow light is a T5 fixture with T5 LED tubes. T5 fixtures come in 24 and 48 inches long and width can be 1 to 8 tubes wide. The LED tubes come several light colors, white, full spectrum, blue and red.

    I received very little useful information from this lecture.

    Luke, if you want to be serious about this subject, tell your fans the following:
    1. If you have $500 to spend on grow lights, I would recommend this equipment…
    2. If you have $1000 to spend on grow lights, I would recommend this equipment…
    3. If you have $2000 to spend on grow lights, I would recommend this equipment…
    4. If you have only $200 to spend, buy a few tiny Ferry-Morse lights that you showed us so many times.
    5. If you don’t even have $200 on lights, either get another hobby, or wait for sun to really show up.
    I am one of your fans that can spend $2 grand on lights, but I have no idea what lights to buy. Even after listening you for 12 minutes.

    I have a 1ft x 1ft x 2.5ft tell box with 3 100 watt equiv led house bulbs 1600 Lum each with diffuser off how many wattz am I running and what light would u recamend for my space or how many of those bulbs do I need to have 1 dicent weed plant

  19. Green Is Good on December 8, 2020 at 9:54 pm

    Can I grow under 18 inch ring light that tiktokers use

  20. Hope Up on December 8, 2020 at 9:55 pm

    Somewhat helpful but I found this video more helpful for beginners https://youtu.be/tHIm7xzUcUg

  21. queenSummerKeli on December 8, 2020 at 9:56 pm

    Ohmygosh!!! Thank you so much for this. Simple and helpful!!!

  22. my2wins on December 8, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    Does anyone else see a Chris Pratt thing going on here?

  23. House Dad Life on December 8, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    Great video on light. I struggled with finding the right bulbs a lot when I started growing indoors.

  24. Picnic Handsome on December 8, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    Thnx for the 10mim nonuseble info

  25. Adam Kim on December 8, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    What an expensive hobby indoor

  26. My Business on December 8, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    You ramble too much

  27. bb truth on December 8, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    Leds all day long. Do not have to spend 700$. t5s ok, cfls ok. K temp should be 2700 for flowering and 6500 vegetative/seedlings. Lumens not that important. Par more important. Different lights, different uses. Wattage = power draw. Don’t use HIDs, no need for those anymore.

  28. SOC 101 Play List on December 8, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    Take-away: Buy the best you can afford; be realistic; test/learn; understand what the light is doing in terms of distance, etc. Great resource, but this video is essentially a "I am not going to give you specific recommendations and do your HW first"

  29. Lynn R on December 8, 2020 at 10:04 pm

    You have made this complicated.

  30. shalom 1989 on December 8, 2020 at 10:06 pm

    There are many factors in learning home aquaponics. One place I discovered which successfully combines these is the Keiths Ponics Site (check it out on google) without a doubt the most helpful course that I’ve seen. look at this interesting site.

  31. Don Hallback on December 8, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    That isn’t everything a beginner needs to know about grow lights. In fact, you don’t know much at all.

    You need to look at PAR and PPFD, not what you perceive as light via kelvin temperature. What a dinglefuck you are.

  32. P H on December 8, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    700 LED for "those" lol so naive

  33. Charles chase on December 8, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    All Hail! Shale! Shale! Shale!

  34. Regionvoices on December 8, 2020 at 10:12 pm

    So T5 don’t put out enough lumens unless you gang four in a row

  35. Alexander James on December 8, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    Why are none of the top comments pointing out how hott he is???

  36. Daniel Loeb on December 8, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    10:00 "These lights are 1,000 lumens; these are 30,000 lumens. That means I can have these lights 30 times as far."

    Nope. Light diffuses by the distance SQUARED. That means a light 30 times as bright can be ~5.5 times as far away (the square root of 30), not 30 times as far away, for the same effect.

    So if you would want to keep that little light 5 inches from your plant, you want to keep the bigger light about 27.5 inches from your plant to get the same effect.

  37. Ernie Ferguson on December 8, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    I agree, however your misleading them in the fact having the right mix of color plus IR depending on growth stage & abt 4 hrs of uv light for certin plants (except leafy greens) & controlling surface fungi & pests. just add IR leds & a t5 fluressent tube made to let some uv thru on seprate timer.

  38. Andy Tchir on December 8, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    Can you use t5 flurorescent grow lights in low temperatures?

  39. Clementino Gilbert Tj on December 8, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    So, I’m tryinna grow my succulent, Lovegood. And I’m using my LED desk lamp for the light. Is that ok? The desk lamp is very bright, it always blinded me when it’s on my desk, so I never use it again.

  40. ThtGrlDiana on December 8, 2020 at 10:19 pm

    Hi! Love your videos. I’m setting up an indoor garden (hydroponic style) in my 8′ x 12′ outdoor shed, in good ‘ole Washington. What benefits do you get with respect to lighting when you use Mylar/reflective lining/paper? Do you have a video on light supplementing? what are some of your recommendations?

  41. DepressednWondering on December 8, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    So how do I determine how far to put the lights away from the plants based on the lumens? Like is there a minimum lumen requirement for 3-5 inches and then a set +plus amount of lumens for every 1 inch further away you move the light from the plants/seedlings? I hope this question makes sense.

  42. Pittsburgh Bonsai Hunters on December 8, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    So I have a few blue mini lights for my reptiles. The blue output is high and it gives off heat as well. Could that work? Hey… grand idea I’ll just try it with those seeds you don’t grow. Lol still your opinion???

  43. Vivian Lau on December 8, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    design grow lights per customers requirments ,can do different spectrum. 10 years grow light manufacturer

  44. Dillon Smith on December 8, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    "Other things…" as many of you have alluded to…LOL

  45. Lucia- Nishino Jurado on December 8, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    I want to do a small indoor garden

  46. Anya Light on December 8, 2020 at 10:22 pm

    Thank you!

  47. Tucker on December 8, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    With budget light company’s like Viparspectra and Mars Hydro you can now buy a "budget" quantum board, but the interesting fact is there’s only about a 5-7% difference between the top of the range diodes and the more "budget" diodes, and to those that say well the budget light is built in China the truth is they are ALL made in China,

  48. Marion Sutcliffe on December 8, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    If a light is 9x brighter then you can place it 3x further away (not 9x further away). It’s because you are increasing the AREA covered by 3*3 = 9 when you move it 3x further away.

  49. Raul Vega on December 8, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    How much cost to run shop lights vs quality grow light lumens? Starting out appreciate your experience and response.

  50. Wakinyan Wortcunner on December 8, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    He’s not showing anything 🤦🏻‍♀he’s just yaking and bragging about his $700 lights that were given Free🤨
