How and when lighting is reinforced with Led Kappa100W.

Advantages Led + Lec
One question that you ask me a lot is when I put the Led Kappa to reinforce the Lec luminaire, and I always do it on the 15th day of flowering. This is the short answer and here I explain why I do it.
First of all, to say that growing with the Lec + Led lighting system is a very wise decision to self-cultivate marijuana, well, I have to specify that to self-cultivate marijuana in the closet. I use a 1.45 × 1.45 × 2 wardrobe, the main advantages are:
- Exceptional for applying light molding and with Solux’s Selecta II 630W I efficiently cover an area of 2.1 m2.
- Great energy saving since we will use the full power in the 3rd week of flowering.
- It is a very efficient system and we can apply 500W / m2 whenever we want since the power is adjustable from 380W to 1030W in my case.
- If through one of those we get some tall plants that break the homogeneity of height, the Led Kappa100w dampens this inconvenience since we simply have to raise it more. This drawback breaks the efficiency of many crops since the luminaire will work very high.
I want you to look at where the plants go, up to the edge of the 4 sides of the wardrobe, that is, there is a usable surface of the entire wardrobe, 2.1 m2, and so far I have only used 630W.
This is the best way to show that with a Selecta II 630W from Solux an efficient growth is carried out on an area of 2.1 m2 until the 3rd week of flowering. The 3 photographs in this post say yes:
As can be seen in the photo above, the plants look good and there is no spiky or deficient plant.
Flowering day 15
Although I could do all the flowering with just this lighting, I sure would not have marijuana to be self-sufficient or growing 4 crops a year. The solution is to optimize and get much more production in the same cultivation area. Now is the time to add 1 Kappa100W Led bar per side since the plant is going to do a very high job and will need more lighting and nutrition.
The plant will go from growing leaves, stems and branches, to producing and fattening buds, they are very different things and different conditions are needed:
