This article is intended to be a Cree Cxb3590 review. In particular, I am looking at this product in the scope of growing outside in the full sun, on a trellis system. My first grow was a little tough because I wanted to use a trellis system, but it turned out the soil I used made a big difference and I now grow almost all of my food in a variety of containers, not just seeds, and plants. So let’s begin with this review.
The Cree Cxb3590 review is an indoor/outdoor grow tent. This is one of those grow lights that allow you to grow inside or outside for almost any type of growing purpose. It’s perfect for monoculture, you can just grow plants inside in your home or grow a tent. It also has a versatile lighting system that includes a bright high output led grow lamp along with many different types of accent lighting.
The main lighting source is a pair of hid bulbs that are about 10 inches tall. They’re pretty cool white and don’t look much like traditional LEDs at all. I found the LEDs to be a little too harsh and yellowy tasting for my taste. The cree cxb3590 comes with a pair of cob legs, one pair in white and one pair in red.
There are a couple of different ways that this grow tent can be configured. The most common (and cheapest) is called a “standard setup”. Basically, this just has a couple of smaller grow lights, some white and some red, with a hole for the reflector in the middle. You can get a bigger reflector or a lower intensity bulb to make your light spectrum even more diverse. In my opinion, this is the easiest configuration to get a good set of results out of.
The second type of configuration that the C Xiang LED grow tent comes with is the “cob blade” configuration. What I like about the cob blade configuration is the fact that it gives you more flexibility. The emitters are not permanently attached to the grow lights, so you can move them around to wherever you want. I have not tested this though, and my personal experiences might vary from other people.
Another thing that the Cree Cxb3590 review doesn’t tell you is that there are some differences between the different grow lights that come with the set. Some of them have high output blue LEDs, others have high output red beds, and still, others have nothing at all. If you are looking for a completely automated setup that does not require any additional human input to operate then I highly recommend one of the red cree light tubes. I prefer these because they give off a lot of light for a little heat output, and they tend to last a lot longer. The biggest drawback is that you need at least two of these tubes in order to get a decent amount of output (up to about 45 watts).
Finally, if you are going to be growing plants that don’t like a lot of suns (sharks, earthworms), then I suggest getting a set with high blue hues. This should give you the best results if you are trying to grow plants that don’t like a lot of sunlight (lilies, azaleas, etc). High blue hues tend to have a lot of colors, which makes them great for indoor environments.
The final thing that I want to mention in my review is that the included carrying case is absolutely amazing. The built-in carrying case makes transporting your LED high bay lighting panels easy no matter what the intended use might be. The case is sturdy and looks great (Cree has many great-looking colors). My only complaint about the case was that it tended to fall down a few times, but overall I am very happy with my purchase.
