400 Watts is ridiculous and excessive. I experimented with the available low wattage LED lamps from the local hardware. Usually less than 25 watts. I don't use them for producing only making strong healthy plants for later outdoor plantings. The advantage of the LED's is the low heat produced. With any artificial lighting the criteria is to get under sunlight asp. My heuristic report.

I was growing in a 4m by 4m conservatory with close on a 100 plants in there so 400w was adequate not excessive in regard to getting plants ASAP from Led to sun is wrong you need to almost harden them of to the sun as tender leafs will burn imo!

A little late to the topic,...but if you look at enough factory style farming you see the use of these red lights instead of the normal high watt white lights.

Dose not take much brains to see the cost savings of changing from a high watt sodium light used by a lot of pot growers changing to red/blue LEDs.

Unless you are growing plants in a high density situation, basically commercially LEDs don't really make that much sense for the home gardener.
