First Grow- indoor 600w HPS
    #663538 - 03/25/13 07:17 PM (3 years, 8 months ago)

Hey guys first time grower here. i started with a 5x5x8 tent AC cooled. i also have a 600w HPS with being cooled with an in-line can fan. im limmited to the one in line so ive attached my carbon filter to the other end of my HPS Hood. I have 20 clones in coco (7/10 coco/perlite). 12 budda tahoe and 8 Holy Grail. they were vegged for 2 weeks under two T5 flourecents. I am about to start the begging on week three in flower. i justed added CO2 last night and two fans for air circulation. Im feeding them 850 ppm mix of A&B cana nuts at 6PH every other day (2 cups). the oppisite days i am giving them 0ppm 6PH (1 cup). that is to try and prevent salt build up at the base of the plants in the coco. like i said this is my first time and any feed back would be greatly apprciated. thanks :laugh:

Well I would say that's a lot of plants for 1 600 watt light.  But if you are already flowering then it might be ok.

I,d move those closer together and lower the light a little for the stretch

Check the temperature at plant tops with a thermometer.

Or a good rule of thumb, is that if you can keep your hand there and it's comfortable, then it's comfortable for your plants.  The reverse is also true.

That's pushing it, with some strains. Might get burned

Get another ac and leave that one off... Just cause you have a hole for an ac doesn't mean you can't put one anywhere else, right?

Summer isa comin up soon so it won't get cooler. Unless you're really close to the Ecuador.. :uhoh:

AC units r a little pricey so thats why i havent purchased one yet but yes that is the plan in the near future.
i live in Southern California so heat will deffinatly be a problem.
