For the small growing area use case a smaller light is desirable to manage heat, not waste money on energy or on buying too large of a light. The perfect LED grow light for this size of grow is around 200 watts. A well-built 200 watt LED grow light will provide the light equivalent to a theoretical 275 watt HPS light.

It is always helpful to use reflective material for light containment when growing indoors. Using a white or other reflective surface to bounce light back towards the plants in your garden can significantly increase the effectiveness of your lights. This is particularly helpful in smaller gardens using smaller lights.

The PhytoMAX 200 is the perfect LED grow light for this type of situation. The PhytoMAX LED grow light is compact and easy to handle and install but it puts out a huge amount of light from the relatively small and light package. This is the smallest light on the market to include real UV LEDs for increased potency and quality in your harvests.

The PhytoMAX 200 is a 215 watt LED grow light made by Black Dog LED. This light is perfect for the beginner grower or any grower with a relatively small space for their indoor garden and aren’t going to grow too many plants that are too large.

The PhytoMAX 200 may be the smallest light in the PhytoMAX lineup but do not let its size fool you, it is capable of flowering good amounts of dense high quality flowers. The fact that this light is all LED and 215 watts means you can keep the light and your grow cool with minimal effort and ventilation.

Black Dog LED’s PhytoMAX 200 is the ideal grow light for small areas, providing plenty of power to flower plants in a 2.5 by 2.5 foot area (30 x 30 inches, 6.25 square feet) or grow them vegetatively in a 3.5 by 3.5 foot area (42 x 42 inches, 12.25 square feet). It replaces a traditional HPS light running at 300 watts, but provides higher-quality results. Based on over 5 years of research and experience designing and selling LED grow lights, the PhytoMAX 200 is designed to out-grow and out-last other LED grow lights!
