Well not T5s, but I usually have T8s over them (see pic below) - was too lazy to setup my entire veg tent in there (the EZ Clone will be on the bottom under T8s, mothers up top under the 400HPS) so just threw them under the 400 for convenience.Bobby ever thought of trying T5's over your clones? Less heat get the light lower, less electric
Lol.......there's no game more fun but frustrating - stopped playing yesterday when I was down $10K for Saturday and Sunday..........had 8-8 in the hijack, made it $150 to go..........the button popped it to $350, I call, we go to the flop heads up...........flop is A-8-2, I bet out $700, he raises to $1500, I shove, he calls..........he had the cooler of all coolers, A-A........$5K lost that hand ($15K over the two shitty days), decided that was a sign I should take a break for a couple of days.Damn.
I don't play poker anymore.
A few too many 'poker lessons' at a couple hundred an hour is enough for me...
Where you going to put your ozone generators?
Yeah, I'm not gonna turn any on until they're needed - my sincere hope is that the two filters (4" and 6") should get the overwhelming majority of the stank, and then the 5500 will clean up any residual.I work too damn hard for my money to gamble like that. Takes bigger brass than I have to throw 15k away on a weekend.
Be careful with the generators ~in~ your room. It can remove the smell of the product too.
I would definitely use the bigger one on the exhaust only.
im sorry i know this is a fairly old post but you really think this is your most efficient option?I could grow way more bud in a simpler setup, but I lack the available space and I'm not willing to use the power that would necessitate (at least 4-6K, whereas I'm using 2.4K).
There is no more efficient way to grow than to totally encircle the bulbs with plants, so I believe (based on countless hours of research) that this is the most efficient system I could've built.
It kind of depends on your definition of "efficiency" - for me, it's a function of least amount of time servicing my garden and getting the greatest yield possible.im sorry i know this is a fairly old post but you really think this is your most efficient option?
how much do you plan on producing from this system? i think a sog in soil wouldnt dominate in simplicity and yield. just my .02 once again.
I don't think that additional parameter of "square foot" needs to be in there - can you give an example where it becomes a factor?Grams per Watt per Square Foot.
This system will out produce a flat garden, hands down.
Hey man, you're preaching to the choir, and that was one of my main decisions when building my room - go intake/exhaust and save initially and on an ongoing power basis, or seal it up and spend more upfront and on an ongoing basis - I chose to seal it up, because my goal is to grow the dankest weed possible with my genetics, and unfortunately that's just not possible in an intake/exhaust scenario where I can't control my parameters.you think this system will be EASIER to take care of then soil?
ive checked my garden three times in two weeks. one time to water.
you sure as hell dont need to be in there everyday. and 95% of the time i walk in, look for bugs, check the soil and walk out. i dont see how thats a lot of work?
i have no res to change, no ppms or ph to check. i may not yield as much per watt as you but im sure its pretty close when you take into account all the wattage your adding for required equipment for a hydro setup, i have one fan and a 1k light for my personal room. its like 1250 watts TOTAL.
now you guys have pumps, chillers, a/c's, etc etc. so much shit to go wrong ya know, a pump fails anything.
about the only thing that will fuck my room up is if my power goes out or my timer or buld burns up. even then ill catch it in a day or two and nothing should DIE.
sorry, im just looking at the big picture and the whole cost of things. i can guarantee i have less headaches than you.
