It's a dr90 mate 0.9 X 0.9 X 1.8 meters yeah I'll keep an eye on em lol might end up with bleached plants
Bro turn it down its too much 660 tbh your guna be pushing it with a 600 get your self a cheap light meter last 1 I got was £5 off ebay a decent 400w would be perfect for that size tent any more is a waste unless your guna get into co2 imho I would either get the 400w or get a bigger tent I know a guy who can get good quality cheap tents and they will get u on next day let me know and I will pm u his number

What's the size of your tent mate there is such thing as too much light I would keep an eye on it tbh
The last time I was in a tent I had 3450 watts in 3 AC/DE hoods. This was in a 4x8 with 18 plants. Pulled a little over 6lbs. Had a 25k btu AC plumbed directly into the tent to keep temps happy. Also my lights intake and exhaust were outside of the room. Took some work but worth it.

My point is don't think your gonna bleach anything with only 600w as long as you don't get them to close. Even then I think you would burn them long before you could bleach them.

I wouldn't be so sure as to not keep an eye on this and did u run co2 or even try it with less light I use 2 x600w in that size area with no ac which also churns up electric and no co2 depending on strain anywhere from 40 to 50 oz bone dry so I guess u can see where I'm going with this :)
And just incase u don't off that amount of juice I would have been pulling 9lb which is a 50% gain and that's with out the gadgets

3 a light is hard to pull consistently. I only count the rock hard buds, no larf here. Your average is 2-3lbs in a 4x8.... Mine is 6-8lb in a 4x8.... your electric bill is $150......my electric bill is $650..... But I have 3-5 more lbs than you. so if we do a cost per oz to grow, mine is vastly cheaper even paying more for electricity.

What gadgets do you speak of? DE bulbs? AC/DE hoods? The window AC I built a manifold for and piped into my tent for about $250?

Lastly I was running OG Kush which isn't exactly a great yielder, blue dream or gorilla glue would have yielded more. Sometimes I used to grow strains when I got a special request/offered more for knowing the plants yield less.

Nowadays I run little over 10k in a 20x40 greenhouse. That's flower only. It will average over 3 a light because the sun is my supplemental light lol. And I have room for trees.....

How is it cheaper just because it's in a smaller space u have already clarified that your using more juice and that mine off the same amount of juice and a lot cheaper equipment gives me 50% more bud than u which is also rock hard bud and no other bullshit so u can slice and dice all u want with a lot less cash I can return a lot more that's it

Been talking to a pal tonight he's run a 600 in a mini tent like yours and said he pulled 20 oz he's not 1 to bull shit and his grade is always puka he said it looked like u would struggle getting a piece of paper between the heads he said watch out for bud rot and keep plenty of air moving hope this helps mate :)

Yes it does lol little reassurance indeed mate! I don't think I'll hit 20 zedz but anything higher than GPW I'll be happy with its more about quality denser buds tbh. I have thined out the canopy quit heavy early on ie removing almost a third of the under growth and fan leaves at the higher end of canopy. May have set me bk a week but I'm sure it will help in the end like you said with air flow etc.
I'll get a full overall tent pic up for ya soon, so you can see properly what I'm working with, lol she's a baby! :smoking:
