I assume you're not using the whole room if you are you would probably want 4+ lights.

If you don't care about how many plants you have it would be more efficient to use more plants in 3gal buckets over the 5gal buckets assuming you can fit in x amount more plants. X being some unknown number of plants that makes having more plants more worthwhile than having more medium/rootmass.

If you're using fully rooted 5gal pots you should expect some fairly big plants, fairly tall plants if you don't control their height by training methods.

I will be using the whole room. The goal is to eventually set up 3 rooms. But I worry about the electric bill and also overloading the circuits in the house. I don't think the house can handle more the 2 lights per room, It's kinda small. 3, 12x12 rooms with a small living room/ kitchen area.

Would I be better off just having one grow room then? And perhaps one veg room.

Lights have a certain area they can cover. A 600w is about 9-10 sq ft, a 1000w is 16-20 sq ft a 12x12 room is 144 sq ft. So even if you used 2 x 1000w lights per each room a great deal of space would be unused. The walls wouldn't be used to reflect light back to the plants, there would be an excessive amount of air space in the room that your fans would still have to circulate. The only way this could be practical is if you build interior rooms within the 12x12' rooms or use grow tents then you would be reducing your needed airflow a great deal, be using the walls for reflectiveness.

An example of the unused airspace... 12x12x8 = 1152 cubic ft a 4x8x8 = 256 cubic ft, this makes the room far more practical when you consider ventilation.

So I will need to either set up grow tents or put all the lights in one room.

This makes sense to me.

Thank you.
