I am actually planning on running 9 plants per square meter which is a little under one per square feet. How many plants are you running per sqf?
I will grow in rockwool cubes. Maybe i will try the small cubes with slabs but im not sure yet because ive never used them before and i really dont want to try shit out in my first run with that setup.
So to clarify:
I will start with two flower rooms with 50 lights on the lower rack of the two story rolling benches each. I want to get the two story ones so i can easily just expand with putting in more dehu's inside and more opticlimates on top of the rooms. This way i can safe money on rent (its expensive where im at and also not easy to find good real estate). I dont have to build another whole room out of sandwich panels.
The other 50 Lights are for veg and moms (i am not sure yet how many for veg and how many for moms, suggestions appreciated
I was planning on using per room:
1 x 21kw Opticlimate (a friend told me they just releasing that unit, idk if he is talking about the revomax. if not ill add a small third unit)
1 x 15kw Opticlimate
2 x QUEST DUAL 205 units
I have about 20 feet ceiling height. so i need approx 1.5feet of free room on top for airflow purposes (diffusers sucking up hot air). should be plenty of room for the plants then.
i hope i got all the information in this post, sorry if I forgot something
thanks dude, I appreciate that, been a lot of thinking,planning and taking in other peoples information :) mostly from european cbd growers and its not even done yet. I am working on a proper CAD model of the whole facility before i start in about 6-12 months. irigation is still in planning stages too. i want to use growlink sensors for crop steering. their dosing system is super cool too (they are using H.E anderson dosers if i am not mistaken). talked to one of their technicians but i am running low on funds and thats why i am probably starting of with "just" their sensor/irrigation system.
