Lighting is in my opinion the biggest decision one will make in growing Cannibis indoors. I see new growers fall into the I need one huge light pit way too often.
Hence I started this thread to help new growers with a few pointers and I welcome all to chime in.
Ok, once I too ran one big 1,000 watt HPS up high with very little thought to side lighting. Through the years that same room has changed from the one 1,000 watt HPS and for the better.
Now it has two 600 watt dimmable HPS up high and 210 watts of full spec led side lighting. My yields have doubled. Light spread and penetration are more important than light power in my opinion and is something all new growers setting up lighting should consider.
Even in a tent, having all your light up top makes fluffy side buds.
