I have 3/5/9/18 gallon pots for soil based grows. Eventually I would like to be 100% organic.
I want to be able to grow 4 plants (VA’s limit) in my tent. I plan on using 5 gallon pots for autos, and 9 gallon pots for photos. I realize I could get by with a 2x4, but I want space to work in the tent, and I want my plants to have the freedom to get big and bushy. And if I can fit another 1-2 in the tent as well, then whoopee!
I will be growing in my garage, and I live in southeast Virginia where it can get hot. Luckily, my garage stays below 80 as long as the garage door is not left open, which is not a problem. Humidity on the other hand, will be a problem but I have a solution for that.
I am still concerned about heat generated inside the tent, hence the LED light, and this one seems to be top of the line with regard to quality, heat dissipation, light efficiency, and electrical efficiency. I have a window A/C unit and a DH unit ready to treat the air inside of the garage. I also will route an exhaust vent into my attic right above the tent, and my attic exhausts to the outside via fan.
Do I have the correct light for what I want to do? Is the X6 too much light for this tent? Is it enough? I am OK spending 1k on this light if it gives me top of the line buds, but I am also super concerned about heat. 2nd most important to me is energy efficiency. I would rather pay upfront for a more efficient model, even if I don’t recoup that cost financially. Mother Earth will.
My household goes through 1-2 oz per month, $200-400. I would love some surplus as well, to give to friends and family.
Am I on the right track?
Thank you, wonderful community.
