DWC perpeptual grow room questions

my veg/ clone area is going…

and I have already, 4 solar systems 550s (don’t hate me I brought them before I knew what I should have been buting… I would go qtm boards diy). they have a bloom cover area of 3 ft by 4 ft
and a 3x1.5m tent.

this is what im thinking with three dwc 100l tote systems- the ones with the yellow top (I wanted to be different but no good). @peachfuzz, I put it here… but if you want to my grow journal is here Phoenix Grow, From the ashes...... more DWC

.

and I was thinking I could move one of the lights between the system that needs it…

Could you comment if you have any thoughts, or tag somebody if u think they could help…

cheers kettle.

the wheels were an idea but its on carpet, and I think it will be a nightmare anyway…

I will try to draw up what I’ll be building as soon as possible…
Here are my girls from 4 days ago , getting all kinds of goodies… :grin::wink:

It’s just about what you can make work for how you plan to grow…
What I like most about my systems , is how universal they are… :grin::wink:

buddy, I really don’t like admitting when im wrong, especially when I spent so much time and money building the other system- it wont go to waste ill be using bits and pieces from that for years to come.

but lets be honest there are a lot of negatives (took up so much space, need all plant to be on same nutes, if something goes wrong it all goes wrong,) and not too many positives, I guess if your into growing individual plants from seed and want them to be monsters whos roots don’t touch but I still don’t get why you wouldn’t want multiple systems. now when something goes wrong I can pick up the lid place it in a spare tub walk everythink into the bathroom and clean it fwarking well.

All of my tables will be in the middle of the room with free floating walls to direct my light…
With about 2’ clearance around the tables to attend to everything…
3 tables that are 4’x6’ I hope…
Will have to get a real world measurement to make sure… :wink:
If you can keep roots st 66 yo 68 that would be best…
I just work with I got at the moment…
Outside temps are still ridiculous at the moment…

But if my tables are 4’x6’ that equals 12’x6’ …if that makes sense… :wink::grin:

I get you, but I have a grow ten that equates to 9 ft by 5 ft, and I have 4 lights, I was thinking of running 3 side by side, because my lights are prob not going to be as hectic as yours. do you think it would work,… well?

Thanks bud were all good. do you get worried you wont be able to live where you live in a… decade, couple of decades… couple of years…

Do you think I would be better off with 2 tables in a 9’x5’ space or 3 tables, if work load was no issue, I could do sog, or scog.

So you’ll have three 3’x5’ tables…?
Will your lights be able to cover that space…?
