I think I have figured out how I would like to work my grow room. I’m only allowed to legally grow 4 plants at a time, but with the right strains and set-up, I think I can still harvest some decent yields on a 2 month rotating basis. I’d like to maintain 2 grow areas in my grow room. I will make tent like structures with Panda film. I’m thinking like 7 x 3 or 7 x 4 for each area, and each area will contain 2 plants. One tent will veg and the other tent bloom about 2 months apart.
I’ll do the set up with the grids and LST to maximize my harvest, so I won’t want to move the plants. Instead, I’d like to keep my full spectrum lights in each tent, maybe 25 watts per sq ft, and move a red spectrum lamp or lamps from tent to tent depending on which tent is vegging and which is blooming.
But there’s really no point to adding more full spectrum light, there is already plenty, so I think a mainly red lamp will do the job better. I’m considering a HPS lamp, but I’d rather go with a similar LED equivalent.
I’ve done a little searching and haven’t found anything economical other than an HPS yet, any suggestions?
fwiw, the strains I will be growing are Gorilla Glue, Girl Scout Cookies extreme, Bruce Banner, Skywalker OG, and Black Widow. I need to figure out which of the 4 doesn’t make the cut.
