Final Thoughts About 600w LED Grow Lights

600 watts of power is a nice medium between super expensive grow-light set-ups and finding a light that gives enough power but will not break the piggy bank. They can be used as supplemental lighting as well as your main growing light.

Using lights at this wattage when you first start out growing makes things simple, and as you become more advanced and buy bigger and stronger lighting, you can use the 600watts to add more light and supplement where a bigger light is not necessary.
