Beginner grow. Will be Second time around. First time was over ten years ago when I was in highschool so you can imagine how that was. Anyways ive got 6 drunken gorilla seeds 6 boo berry crunch seeds and 18 random strain seeds germinating right now. I am going to be using canna coco nutrients. Will transfer females to 30 gallon pots and will be moved to our up and comming pole barn grow op. going to invest in alot of used lighting soon. Hope to run 1000 watt hps gavidas. We are currently completing our pole barn grow op and buying equipment as we go. Barn is 32x64x15… Going to be fun. Tag along and any help is appreciated!!!.
What kinda lightning you gonna use for all those girls?
U gonna have a light issue that’s alot of plants if you plan to get the many bigger then the sive of the pots u got em i. Your gonna need more space and light
I’m assuming your f mg one use that whole room you have the light hanging in so I’d say u don’t spend another penny on bestva lights and save up. And build a customer light or 4 or get some QBs kitsch because led with Samsung strips u want about 40 actual watts per square foot as a general rule of thumb u can get away with 30 but that bestva is probably a 250 watt light ur gonna need about an 8x5 space to get any weight out them girls and that will require 2 hlg 600 kits or probably 4 300 watt kits from hlg more coverage from 4 fixtures were talking 1500 bucks in prefabed lights or about 1200 bucks if you build it your self it comes out to about a dollar a watt for 8 x 5 rough estimate that’s 40 sq feet 1200 watts would be minimal for that size area in led ud use about 2000 to 2500 watts in hids equivalently of light equallity
Call me risky but me and my partner are going to invest in alot of lighting soon. Hope to run 1000 watt hps gavidas… We are building our pole barn grow op and buying equipment as we go. Pole barn is 32x64x15. I will be adding that to my post
Set to watch, check with the light guru @dbrn32
The de’s are good lamps for large applications, especially if you have a lot of head room. Make sure to review their documents on how to lay the lights out properly.
My seeds are beginning to sprout from my coco medium. Quick question. When should i stop using canna start, and begin feeding the plants the rhizotonic, A +B, and cannazym. ?
Google canna feeding scheduels…holy shit out hats alot of fixtures…ur gonna have a huge issue cooling that space with that many hids looks like your not short on money but I would instantly look into insulation for the wall and roof or is that not the pole barn your gonna build …I’m assuming u didb t build that today …320watts are u talking about single ended cmh 315s and 400s are by far war worse then 1000watt competitor of same style light ud rather have 1 1000 then 3 400s the penetration of light on a 1000 is so much greater

The pole barn is already standing we need to finish concrete, insulation, and electricity. I live in michigan and winter is comming so its gonna get cold. We hope to run these lights for maybe 2 or 3 harvests tops. Just 2 youngins trying to make it happen
I’m here for the ride. And go buckeyes! ,)
Good luck I’m interested in your upscaling as I’m gradual expanding … I was in a 2x 5 space moved to a 2 x 9 now I’m in a 10 x 10 with a 7 x 9 veg room so I’m interested in the expansion aspect of it does it have passive fans on the opposite ends or do you plan on sealing and gilling in the floor completely all stetileand stuff like that I started do preventative mantinince believe me think way ahead when mak8g that big if an investment … think of things that can be detrimental to large portions of a crop that make or break your profit margin… so think of molds, fungus insects, all kinds of pests you no u gonna have rodents seaking refuge from the cold I don’t really have that problem in Florida but u might so think of prevention not having JBL g to deal with it while its impacting you negatively and there is effective preventive products for damn near everything anti cannabis
Thanks for the reply. I actually just moved up here from florida lol. Ill keep you guys posted. Good luck
