New to the forum.
Have an inquiry about lighting as was tossed some new information and I am left cratching my head …
20 x 12 room
4x4 rule for spacing
Lights required ?
Following my belief and practices, I would use 15 600 W HIDs, using 1 light per 4x4 area to achieve optimal lighting.
Received an article which was to explain proper watts and lighting required.
- Length and width of room
20x12 = 240 sq feet
- Divide this number by 4 (saw feet of plant)
Answer 60 sq feet Canopy
- Multiply 60 with 65 (ideal wattage of 65w/sq.ft)
Answer 3,900 Watts
From this, I would only require 7 600W Hid’s to cover entire Canopy with optimal lighting
*** or 4 1000W HID’s if that’s your preference.
Is this correct? Am to assume I will get the same end results (12-15 lbs) off half the lights ???
