2x2 grow box with 600watts & 150watt HPS
    #728385 - 04/29/14 09:24 PM (2 years, 7 months ago)

I wanted to ask a question about light and yield.
I currently have a 2X2 grow box with 600watt CFLs and 150watt HPS lighting. (1 female hybrid plant. My girl "Precious" is fully into flowering stage and forming a nice cola that will end up being the size of a large banana when I go to harvest.)
How much yield will this produce?  I own Ed Rosenthal's Grow Bible.  He breaks it down really well but I wanted input from other growers online to see if you all have something similar and what your yield was? 
Did your lighting and grow area make any impacts on your yield?

Thanks in advance.

No one can answer this for you.  There are so many variables that will determine yield.

Wait a minute... 600w CFL? That sounds like a shitload of CFL watts to me. The yield probably wouldn't be significantly less than with mh or hps. For veg that should be more than enough. I think they just come out less condensed than if you'd use hps for flowering. At least that's what I recall reading.

I have 4 35-watt CFL and it's enough to keep 5+ plants growing maybe only a tiny bit less than plants under a 400w MH. I wouldn't worry if you were concerned you'll be losing out on a lot of yield. Though I've never used cfl for flowering, and I'm kind of guessing.

Be sure to read up on "autoflower"/ruderalis seeds before choosing them. Unless you NEED autos, you might do much better with anything else. No more hoarding ultra genetics! We need more of the best not less!

What does that matter?  It doesn't change the fact that no one can answer his question.

he is also using a 150 watt hps.

Heh it doesn't really matter. It's just their first post and I wanted to take a stab at helping them. Though my response is mostly based on the presumption that they're worried they don't have enough light to get a decent yield.

Oh cool so you're almost done. or not if it's one of those crazy 15 week sativa, which are relatively rare.

My last(also my first) grow I got only about 30g from 3 plants with 400w HIDS. Although I've seen 100+g yield from just 1 plant under a few t12 fluorescents fed with 1 thing of miracle grow and in a smaller pot than I used when I got about 10g per. So it's hard to say what you will get. even with details. Luckily peoples 2nd grow is likely to go much better than the 1st.

Hope it goes well.
