    If you want T5 there is a lot of PAR data out there for those. You can also use the PAR calculator on Rotalabutterfly.


    your problem is the 24" of height (21" at substrate) which many leds will fail to penetrate easily. You will need high wattage leds.


    Having said that you really don't need too high a light to make plants grow. 50-60 umol at substrate is more than enough generally.
