I’m trying to plan my next grown while finishing off my first test grow.My grow box internal dimensions are 16.5" wide 11.25" deep and 27.75" tall. My plan is to do a scrog grow this time and see how that will work for me with such a small area. With a 6qt reservoir for DWC the distance from the top of the container to the bottom of my CFL lights is 15". If I build my net so that the canopy is 12" from the top of the reservoir that would leave about 3" to the lights with should be alright?
Not sure about the cfl’s but I use t5 ho fluorescent lights and I only have 3" from my canopy. The buds are above my net so you may be a little tight.
Hey rock, I M also using a DWS. I measured 4’ between the floor and ceiling. I will use a led light source. Suggested space from plants is 12". Any thoughts on that?

Read this Monster cropped goldleaf scrog @hillcrest21678 has got scrogging pretty well Sussed and has been using a relatively small space. 3" clearance with the CFL will be sufficient for vegetation, but not flowering, those colas need some room to grow!
After reading that thread I figured I’d try it in my limited space. I just wasn’t sure if I would be able to make it work oright not.
I might be able to move where I have my CFL’s which could give me about 3 more inches maybe. Currently they are on the top lid on the center I was thinking I could move them to the back wall sticking out towards the door but I’m worried I might loose some efficacy. Or my other thought was to lower my screen to 8" which would allow 5" for colas and still have 2" or so before touching the lights if I leave them in their current position.
