and the
Premium Edition which comes in 2 sizes of Mars Hydro MarsPro II: MarsPro II 600 W LED and MarsPro II 1600 W LED for the 4 Plant Tent

The main difference between the Mars II line and the MarsPro II line is that the MarsPro II line uses and distributes light somewhat more efficiently, optimizing your grow and harvest. The Mars II line will produce a yield of up to 1.8 g/W while the MarsPro II will produce a yield of up to 2.0 g/W. The price difference typically pays itself off in your first grow.

        Metering Devices - Nutri+ pH Quickcheck Tester and Nutri+ TDS Quickcheck Tester
        These testing devices are made by well known manufacturer Nutri+ and are fast and easy to use!
        The pH meter is used to test the pH of your water to determine how acidic or alkaline your water is. This allows you to balance the pH of your water to hit the sweet spot for your plants by adding pH Up or Down depending on what is needed. Check out the pH requirements for your plants and strain and note that pH requirements may be different for hydroponic systems compared to soil based systems.
        The TDS meter is used to test the amount of Total Dissolved Solids in your water. The meter reads the Electrical Conductivity of your water and converts it to an understandable TDS value. This will tell you how clean your tap or filtered water is based on the TDS count and it’s mainly used to balance the amount of nutrients in your nutrient solution. The higher the TDS value, the higher the concentration of nutrients in the water. Check your B.C. Hydroponics bottles for charts on different TDS values to target based on how aggressive your want to be with your plants.

        This timer will control your light to determine the photocycle your plants are in. Typically in veg mode your plants will be in 18/6 or 18 hours on and 6 hours off. When you decide to flower your plants you will switch the photoperiod to 12/12 or 12 hours on, 12 hours off. This will trigger your plants to flower.
        Grow Bags – 5 Gallon (19 L) Smart Pot # 5  with Handles + 16” Saucers – (2 Pieces ea. 2.5'x2.5' kit / 4 Pieces ea. 4'x4' kit)
        The Smart Pot is a soft-sided aeration container that air root prunes your plants. Air root pruning is a key component to a healthy fibrous root ball. Unlike plastic containers, roots will not spiral. Instead, air root pruning creates a more dense and efficient root structure with more root tips. More roots means quicker growth. No spiraling roots means better growth. Also, these pots will prevent overheating of plants and also allow for good drainage so there is no water pooling. Included with handles for easy moving around.
        Also included are 4 x 16” saucers to hold the water in when you water your plants and prevent spills.
