Reasoning for looking into this new venture. I have a 28x55x80 inch tent 80 inch hight and you have a 12 inch pot keep light 10 inches from top of tent a lot of full spectrum lights recommend 20 to 28 inches from top of plant. So we are looking at 12+10+20=42. 80-42= 38
Inch plant. And if I have to keep it the full 28 that is only a 30 inch plant. I want to be able to grow taller and use less electricity covering same area and kill hot spots and shadows.
If I can run a rail 10 inches from top of plants it will allow for a 48 inch plant.
So question is what is your experience can you keep a more powerful light for deeper penetration of the canopy closer to the canopy with a rail?
This is what I’ve been reading. Would like to here from experience though.
I would be quite the opposite I think and the big one would be my flower tent. With the rspec moving so i had more even coverage and could be closer to the flowers with more light.
I get some light bleaching on my bud tips with my stationary lights. Thats why I’m looking at rails.
I have the 28x55x80 inch tent with 690 actual watts mostly blurple 100 of it is full spectrum running in it. I am thinking 400 actual watts of full spectrum on a rail. Then I have a 2x3 ft x 54 inches tent for veg. With 530 watts of blurple. I can get them 24 to 28 inches tall in there with hst and lst. Then move to the bigger one for the stretch. At the same time in a 55 gallon aquarium i have seedlings started to go in little tent and flip both to flower. Then they finish at the same time. Not perpetual yet but getting there. Should be there after the new light and rail purchase.
I have to head to work but would like to chat with you more later if thats ok.
Got here have 6 minutes. Do you always do photoperiod. Thats all I do . Have some free auto seeds I might throw outside when it warms up.
Right now looking for a light 400 actual watts that is no more than 20 or 22 inches wide for the rail. That will leave me 3/4 inches each side.
