also after this im going to start putting together a grow tent for flowering stage. 4x4x7 going to put together an ebb and flow setup 4x4 container. I wanna use an led light for it because low heat and less electric usage. but idk what size led I will need for this 4x4 space. small carbon filter with 4" inline fan with small oscilating fan.in the space. it should have good ventilation because the grow tent will be inside my room 3 feet from a window that I will have the vent tubes going right outside. once again any advice or info is appreciated.

Look up companies the make similar systems and see what size pumps they are using. Most likely in that size range it's gonna be a 300 to 600 gph pump since they seem to be used for just about everything in hydroponics.

As far as the LEDs I can't help ya there. I've been growing indoors for 30 years and they just aren't to the point that I can take them seriously yet.

ok so if I were to use a bulb and ballast setup. would like a 600watt work. with a square hood with the ports for venting on both sides work. like I said im only working with a 4x4x7.

I was thinking of something like this for the reflector

Don't change your plans cause of something I said I'm just saying my preference. I use 2 1000 watt lights for 4x8x7. For every 4x4 I recamend a 1000, 3x3 600.


Now the table I've done a million different ways.
These are just wood lined with plastic with the plants in dixie cups filled with lava rock


For tables I suggest SOG growing. For larger plants (what I do now) buckets are best.



The hood you picked is fine. :thumbup:

no I just changed my mind about the led because of the price it will cost me a lot less to get a 1000W bulb and ballast then to get an led.

im only going to do 4 plants in my 4x4x7 tent.. the bucket I was gonna get is also a 4x4 by like 8 or 9 inches deep..was gonna fill it with the orchid rock or clay pellets. should that be enough space for just 4 plants.? trying to get the best use out of my 4x4x7 tent for flowering.. I have tons of room for veg since I wont need to put it in a tent. im trying cloning and everything from the beginning. the best 2 females out of my 4 babies right now will become my mother plants and the other 2 will just got right into flower if they are female or if they are male I will have to get rid of them.i might start reading up more on rwdc I think that the abbreviation. do a 4 bucket system in the tent instead of just one big 4x4x9 inch tray.i just don't know much about the rwdc

Well if you're only gonna do 4 plants then you most likely want to SCROG them to get the most you can.

Easily




Never heard of RWDC. I'm guessing you mean dwc which is deep water culture.

ok well I searched up scrog and now I understand. basically I would be weaving the branches through the net right above it.but how does that make it have more buds.? and would I be able to do that in a 4x4x7 tent with 4 plants? or should I turn the number of plants down to maximize the space available.

I'm just high you're right with the abbreviation.

Quote:

Because it exposes more of the plant to light.

Yes, easily.

will these lights be good enough for my veg table. 2 are regular white bulbs and the other 2 are plant and aquamarine lights. one is acitinic which is the blue light and other is just plain white plant and aquarium bulb.

Nope. The vegging plants will be scrawny and put out shitty cuttings. (meaning poor growth and thin stems)

At the very least you should try and get all T5 Bulbs in there. Myself I'd go with a small MH light.

ok so t5 lights are smaller? like smaller bulbs. the bulbs I have for these fixtures say t12. so im guessing its a lot bigger. are there any bulbs I can use in these fixtures so I don't have to buy another light? im trying to be as cost effective as possible. I don't really wanna buy new fixture if I don't have to.

I think they are doing pretty well.
I transplanted them to 5 inch net cups in the bigger system. The they blew up.
