Input desired from experienced people
    #317421 - 11/17/09 06:12 PM (7 years, 24 days ago)

OK, guys and gals gather round and offer predictions, suggestions or plain criticisms.


The topic at hand is a potential grow area, that may or may not be currently in use. 

Up for suggestion is a 20"x30" area with a 5' ceiling.  A 150w HPS suns sytstems lamp.  four flowering plants, grown short and shrubby.  Fox farms ocean forest soil, and fox farms 3 part nutes.  Passive air intake, with a 240cfm inline fan.  Exhausted through insulated flexible ducting into an attic area.  Any predictions?  Assuming the above mentioned items are in use and not possible to discard and use something else.  Any suggestions to improve with what is available?

Things are gonna be a bit cramped i there with four plants.  I'd looking into doing a SCROG to maximize your grow space.  Do a dry run with your lamp to make sure your ventilation is going to be enough to keep the area cool, and see if you can buy a wall mounting fan to help improve air circulation in your cabinet.

you could try a Verticle Scrog seeing as how you have way more height than anything.

Is it possible for you to coat the walls of the area with reflective paper or even paint it flat white?

I would like to thank everyone for the replys, thanks for the helpful suggestions.  To respond:

With the lamp on the area is maintaning 78F.  Seems to be a reasonable temp to me.

I currently have the area covered with Mylar.  I got it free and it works, so thats what it is for now. 

I dont think that SCROG is a possibility, as there is no assurance of the sex of the subjects.  As of today I think there are two ladies.

I agree, the SCROG would be the best option, but until the sex of the plants is certain, its not really possible. I would also be afraid that by the time the plants show positive signs of sex, it would be too late, as they wouldnt fill out the screen?  I have no experience with SCROG though, so i will gladly take anyones advice, or corrections.  My desire to learn is way stronger than my prid, so you can tell me if I am screwing up or wrong about somthing, its cool.

unless your using an autoflowering strain you can veg em out until the whole screen is filled

Yes, I know, but the sex of the plants are unknown as of yet, and they are already under 12/12.  I guess it could wait until the postitive IDs were made and then allow the "stretch" during flowering to be all horizontal under the screen.  Would that work acceptably?  Everywhere I have seen it mentioned people start with feminized seeds or they use clones so that the sex is known and they start the screen under veg.
