how many lights woudl i need?
    #628507 - 06/19/12 11:26 PM (4 years, 5 months ago)

ok im going to be growing for medical usage  (getting my liciencs in my state soon and my buddy is getting his also) we will be able to have up to 30 plants all together.. so we figured just set up one grow room for that, Now how many lights would be needed for that? i was figuring to go wiht 400 wat hid lights.  Now we want to try to get about a half pound per a plant, we have read that its possible to do that.

now i know that if i dont have the right amount of lighting that would not be possible so was wondering if anybody would know how many lights would i need to be able to get that kind of yeild

I've been doing the 1000watts per 4x4 thing for a while and it seems to work fine.

60 to 70, sea of green style.

1 to 2 lb's,, depending on experience. I'm at about 1 1/4 lb's

Still much to learn.

That depends on how you want to grow. The way it was done in the pic I put up is SOG style or Sea Of Green which is growing large amounts of smaller plants or fewer larger plants more like this size.



Different strains are better with different methods.

ok man, slow down a bit. In SoG style growing the plants are vegged either very little or even non-at all. Those plants are NOT going to yield you 1/2 lb each. They are going to give you a revolving crop so you can harvest as often as you want (or have room for lol).

If you are trying to grow plants big enough for a 1/2 lb yield you are only gonna get 2, maybe 4 in a 4 x 4 area. What do you need that much medicine for anyway? (rhetorical, i don't want to know)

To try for that yield I would recommend getting a large rubbermaid tub (20-30GAL) for 1-2 plants. I would use LST to help them bush out. Grow 1 out to learn better what you are trying to do. also, using only 400w ballasts this is not practical. I think you are envisioning 15lbs out of 30 plants. that is a bit ambitious. good luck with your grow but I would start small to get a better handle on what you are trying to do.
