Last but not least are two lights that offer great value for money. However, we feel the VIPARSPECTRA light offers more bang for the buck. It costs you $0.68 for each watt it draws and can grow 4 plants to maturity. While its coverage is less than that provided by the BESTVA grow light (which covers 6.4ft x 6ft at 24 inches), it uses high-quality LED chips that emit very bright light.
