Grow Room Setup / 4 Plants / LST
    #635787 - 08/29/12 06:02 PM (4 years, 3 months ago)

So I have a closet that measures 5.5 feet wide by 5 feet in length and just under 8 feet tall.
I plant on having 4 plants within that space, all of them being mostly sativa, also I plan on trying out LST and topping to manage their height.

I'll be using a 400 watt metal halide for veg and 400 watt for high pressure sodium for flowering, with a intake fan and outtake fan with a carbon filter setup so no smell and semi cool temps since heat wont have the opportunity to build up.

I plan on starting a log but this grow wont be ready to start for about a month or so.

So based on what I've said, is there any problems with my setup or anything I should add?

As always, thanks guys for any input

my only thought is that you'd be spreading a 400 watt light pretty thin.

I could get another 400 watt light but it would take few extra weeks to save up the funds, but since seedlings don't need all that light, 400 watt would definitely suffice for the time being right?

Right.


But upgrade to 3x600 or 2x1000 watt lights for that amount of space.  Don't forget with more lights the higher the temps, bigger the ports on your reflector you are going to want, and probably an AC unit as well.  But you'll get quite the yield if you do this.

I can imagine that being pretty costly from what I've seen online, the 2x1000 watt that is, any chance you could link me to a good deal?

I'll look around regardless though, also ac unit? could you explain alittle more on that.

Air conditioner.  Make sure the temp stays in range.


Sure it costs money, but you get paid back a ton more out of it. 


Keep in mind, if you are going to be growing in a closet, you will have to be able to devise some way to drain water away. 



They're not really that expensive  http://www.rvfgardensupply.com/cgi/display.cgi?item_num=901905


This may not be the best deal out there, I would go to your local hydroponic shop and buy locally :cookiemonster:

sun systems makes a 2x1000 watt ballast.
