here is the link :

G `day I

LED at best efficiency out put 30 % more plant useable light than HPS .

Yes CMH are bright but not all in plant useable wavelengths .

Lots of small watt LED = lots of sources of light . Plants don`t grow toward the 1 source of light as much because lots of sources .

So a 400 LED at highest efficiancy gives as much PAR as a 600 HPS .

This 200 -300 replacing a 1 K is BS . 700 -800 possibly .

Thanks for sharin
