I know there have been some great conversations about LED lights on the forum. Just wondering if anyone has feedback on Active Grow LED lights. I have one of their fixtures and all seems well. Next, I am thinking about converting the two HO T5 over to LED and thinking about going with their tubes. I grow using utility racks and my lights are generally 12-18 inches above the canopy (see photo below). Before I continue to invest, I figured I would see what other's thought. I need to upgrade the fixtures over my Lycastes and Cattleya shelves.

Thanks in advance.

I replaced all my T5 HO bulbs with LED. I took the one with the best efficiency I could get. They have more than 200 lumen/watt. I replaced two T5s (115 W) with two LED stripes (26 W). What a saving!
