ok so I'm about to upgrade here as soon as this next rounds done. current setup is 2 1000w hps over 8 plants of decent size. not monsters but not sog size either. running on a hydro setup.
what I'm trying to upgrade to. 2 flower rooms with either just 4 1000w hps or the 4 with an extra 600 in the middle of the two 1000s on either side. either way I'm using a flip box between the two rooms, so i either need to get a 4 ballast box or a 6 ballast box. staying with the hydro setup. 24 plants per room. adequate ventilation for fresh air and heat removal. lights are hooded with exhaust fans attached. will get an a/c unit if need be. veg room is in-between the flower rooms with 3 4' t5's. trying to go a more SOG route but wanting to let them veg a little longer to get a little more out of them.
just looking for some opinions is all. constructive criticism encouraged!!!
What do your temps look like now with your current setup? Depending on the temps, you will need a portable AC unit in the flowering rooms running 4 1k watt lights. I ran 2 1k watt lights in my last flowering room and I had a window unit that was setup on a timer to keep my temps perfect around 70-78 during the summer months but during the winter I never had to run it lol. Other than that, it sounds like a decent setup. We would love to see some pics!
