First Time. Indoor Hydro
    #826565 - 06/20/17 08:35 AM (2 years, 2 months ago)

Hi everyone

This is my first post here and I just wanted to say thanks for all the info from contributing members.

I will describe my setup and add pictures at the end.

I have a room in my basement that is approx 18'l x 9'w. I will be framing it down to 11' x 9' for a grow room. Height is 7' walls will be lined with panda film

Inside i will have 2-8pc root spa 5 gal buckets for a total of 16 buckets. For lighting I have 2(for now) 2000w KingPlus LEDS from amazon. They come with great reviews and I have read they are a very underrated light and they compete with some of the middle range LEDS. We will find out I guess.

Because of the height restrictions being that its only 7' high and the LED's are recommended to be at 3' away from plants I will be performing some type of supper cropping, FIM, topping, LST, scrog, etc. once I figure out what they all mean :smile: Basically I want bushes.

I had a few questions and would love some feedback:

1. Is there a good, current write up on how to train plants and which techniques are best?

2. The room in the basement will get some water in it when we have heavy rains. not often but it happens. it has a sump pump. there are not current signs of mold as it is all concrete and block. will short periods of time with some standing water, maybe 1" max affect anything?

3. Has anyone had any experience with the KingPlus LED's and if so how did you like them?

Thanks everyone for you contributions and time!

With an inch of standing water at times invest in GFI ground fault interrupts circuits for power going to that room.

Rule of thumb 40 watts per square foot so 11x9=99 square feet 99x40=3960 so you really need two more 1000 watt lights for that area try mixing in a couple of 1000 watt HPS or reducing your grow area for now.
