Converting from T5HO Fluorescents to T5 LED
Default LED light set up

My little room is about 8.5 by 6.5 feet. I have two 48 inch fixtures side by side going east to west, and they are flanked on each side by one 48 inch fixture at right angles. They are at varying heights from the bench, so that I can accommodate various plant heights. (the fixtures can be easily raised and lowered so I can change the set up as plants grow or the mix changes.) I have the plants on rubber boot trays. These hold a fair amount of water to boost humidity. I have to refill them almost daily. There are two fans running, 24/7, one at each side of the space. I have the lights on 14 hours a day right now. 12 hours in winter. There is room for about 65 +/- plants, but of course YMMV depending on the size of your plants.
