This is a sweet spot size for one large plant or a few smaller ones. It is much improved over the standard 24″ x 24″ x 48″ tents, offering a few inches of width on each side, and over a foot extra height. This extra head room allows for taller plants, and grow light and ventilation ducting.
In this one, I’m using the Mars Hydro SP150 grow light to grow some Chocolate Rocotos.

The Viparspectra XS1500 is the newest iteration of their quantum board grow lights for 2020. The light dimmable with max wattage at 150 watts. It has a mixed spectrum of 3000K, 5000K, 660nm red, and 730nm IR. It is attached to a full aluminum heat seat. It is similar to the Pro series, P1500 grow light they came out with, in early 2020 but has upgraded Samsung LM301B diodes and an HLG series Meanwell driver.

Mars Hydro sent me their SP150 grow light for review. This pulls 129 watts and fits great in a 2 x 2 grow tent. I have mine set up over some germinating Chocolate Rocoto seeds. I’ll post videos of the progress.
This is an unboxing and power test of the Viparspectra 2020 Pro Series p1000 led grow light. This light has a mixed spectrum of 3500K, 6500K, 660nm red, and has a variable dimming switch, which I like. This is the first in a series of new quantum board offerings from Viparspectra. This will replace my HLG-100, which only has 3000K. The mixed spectrum on the Viparspectra should be better for plants from seedling, veg, and flower/fruiting.

I’ve been testing the Sansi 100-watt, 10,000 lumens LED floodlight for growing peppers. This light isn’t designed for use as a grow light but does work really well as one. It is designed to be a utility light. Sansi sent me the one I am testing, for free to review.
For my test, I am using it to overwinter a 3-year-old Khang Starr Lemon StarrBurst pepper plant. As you can see from the videos below, it has exceeded my expectations and is actually producing fruit.

I’m growing a Malagueta x Khang Starr White Thai under the Sansi LED floodlight. Both the parent plants were grown under this light also. I’ve been using this light for almost a year now. Although it isn’t marketed as a grow light, it actually does a great job for both vegetative growth and fruiting. I’m also using it over two Kratky grown peppers, a ‘pepper in a can’ and some succulent plants. I noticed they have a newer one that is twice the size and power. I might try it out in the near future.
Note: Sansi sent me this light for free to evaluate.

Sansi has sent me the second version of their 15-watt full spectrum grow light. In the video below, I show the unboxing and setup, as well as power and light tests. I have it set up over some succulents and will post a follow-up video showing the progress, after 30 days.

I’ve been using the Sansi LED floodlight as a test grow light since August of 2018. This light isn’t marketed as a grow light, it is for general utility, illumination. Sansi sent me this light for free to review. The color temperature is 5600K, which I think is great for growing. I suspected it would be only ideal for vegetative growth, but my plant test subjects have both fruited under it, not once, but twice.

I’ve called it the HLG plant because it’s the only one I’ve had under my Horticulture Lighting Group HLG-100 3000K light. The pepper plant is an unknown cross with Lightning Mustard Hab and has grown prolifically. I need to make room in the tent and make use of the light for this year’s pepper starts. So I pruned it way back, and trimmed the roots, and moved it from the 27-gallon tote to a 5-gallon bucket. I also changed the nutrients from Flora Nova Grow to Dyna-Gro 7-9-5. I’ll soon move it out of the tent entirely and put it under one of my red/blue LED lights. I’ll need to sanitize the grow tent and set up space for my new pepper plants.
Most of my pepper plants have been transferred out of the seed starting system and AeroGardens, into small wicking cups. I’ll probably put most of them in tote lids so they can all feed through the wicks out of the totes.
Here are some pics of the plant I just pruned back.
