I just brought the gl80/w kit, and waiting for it to get here.
I want to use a LED 135 watt ufo 6 band full spec. all 3 watt diodes

my question is

1.) is this enough light for this system?

2.) how many plants can i grow in there all the way to harvest.

First of all for the price LED are not generally worth it unless you are trying to conceal that fact that you are growing "tomatoes" I would suggest a MH/HPS ballast of around 600W. I like the 600W lunatek ballast which you can dim to 400w for grow and then bump it up to 600w for bloom. This should get you where you need to be. Just me 2 cents.

i agree with Bikeidaho, LEDs are generally not all they are said to be. They cost more and grow less. I would go with a 400 or 600 in the GL80. also, in that tent i wouldn't try to put more than 4 full size plants.
