Default Aussie Commercial Setup Vs LED Grow Tent

im an aussie living down under in this grow i will compare a commercially built grow chamber vs a led grow tent the grow fridge is called a "monstagrow chamber" it was sold by grow australia which the company no longer exists it measures 600x600x1300mm and contains 6 pieces of OSRAM G24d3 globes each globe is 24watts however the complete grow chamber is drawing 200watts there are no fans in this grow chamber so it runs silent thats how it was designed the grow tent is a myler tent from ebay measuring 800x800x1600mm i will also be using a 120w LED light for the grow tent

Where do you plan to grow the plants to full size? The cabinet in the pictures dosen't look large enough to grow more than one pepper plant. And I have serious concerns about the amount of lighting as well. Especially if the plants are more than 18 inches away from the lights, and/or if the plants are expected to grow enough foliage that would block light from the lower leaves.

that is a small chamber. you can encourage flowering by changing light yet the plant will have to reach a certain maturity on it own.
