Lighting question for males

I'm getting another tent going for flowering ... the 32x32 just isn't cutting it anymore so I'm converting that tent to my home for wayward boys ... question I have is for the more experienced breeders here...

Do you all find that males needs as much light intensity as the females? I feel like since my goal isn't big dookie buds I should be able to get away with less light but I wanted some other opinions before I went that route

You can definitely do way less light unless you need big plump males to pollinate fields . I’ve used household led bulbs to a 60 watt auto cob currently and it works great and plenty to dust several plants.
Mine usually start in the big room and I leave them until a few days before I think they’ll start dropping pollen and put them in the tent until I think I have enough. Good luck

That's what I was hoping to hear! I have an HLG v65 and a 2 tube t5 that won't be doing much after this changeup so I was hoping they would be adequate for one good male.
