Perfect space for a 600w, nice choice. You should be able to grow 4~ big girls or 12-18~ smaller girls in that space.

Good luck! The 600w is the most efficient HID, I don't have a link handy but I know its roughly 150l/watt.

I like to go with fewer plants and let them get bigger.  Less containers to water and what not.

600 watt light have the best lumen to watt ratio. Best bang for your buck. As for a cooler you could use one of those little window unit air conditioner units from Wal mart or home store. Fewer plants if you are growing for personal cunsumption. Less maintance. If you need your yeild a little quicker. Do a lot of plants and only give em a week or two of veg.

If you have a basement or crawl space underneath you, you could draw air up from there, most times its gonna be pretty cool down there depending on your climate.

I envy your space, my 600 is lighting up  25 x 56.

Do I think you can pull 1500gr with a 600w HID? No

A more realistic goal would be 300gr total.

You might also try an indoor stain, just sayin...

The strain itself is for outdoors, but ive done some research and even in the info on the strain it says it may do as good or better indoors.

I can tell you this much, while a plant may bud twice for you, don't expect the yield to be the same. I have no direct experience with this method but common sense tells me you probably won't see the same yield the second time around. You would likely be more productive to have a few clones taken of what you are currently growing, keep them under some cheap flouros till your first harvest, then rotate.

Lighting isnt the issue i have MH for veg and HPS for flowerin.
I going to probably work with two tents and two strains...anyone got some recommendations nice, easy, rewarding strains? The 2 lber seems to be appealing to the eyes as far as yeilds go...but maybe i need to look around.
