small grow space recommendations.
    #203156 - 03/04/09 11:57 PM (7 years, 7 months ago)

ok, so im going to be helping a friend set up their own grow.  the space they will be using is 6.5' long x 3.5' wide, and 4.5' high.  they want to be able to stick 18 plants in this space, which doesn't seem like it should be too much of a problem, in 1ft square pots.  basically is 2 3x3 square areas. 

for this space i was thinking 2x400 watt HPS bulbs with air cooled reflectors. 9 plants under each one.  of course, a carbon scrubber, intake and exhaust fans too.  im thinking that should be enough light to grow some really nice weed. 

i was thinking of jumping up to 2x600 watt bulbs and ballasts, but the individual bulbs are quite a bit more expensive.  i will be purchasing all of the grow lights myself, and ultimately i don't mind investing a couple hundred more, however is 2x400 watts is plenty, i don't see the point in driving their power bill up if it wont show any real benefits.

any feedback is appreciated

Sounds good to me. You could use 1 600W HPS and a light mover. Thats the only other thing I would consider. Given the height restrictions, that may be a good idea for dealing with hot spots.

I say get two 400s and a light mover. 400s are hot enough already, the 600s will kill you. Make sure you have a huge fucking blower.
