I grow in a closet but need more room for seedlings and some vegging. I grow autos and train them so they don’t grow more than 3 foot. Closet is 9 foot tall. If I moved the wire shelf down to split it. Hang another light. I could double my space. Veg on top. Flower on bottom. With trays for catching water of coarse.
You could do that. Smart thinking. Only thing I see being an issue, easy fix tho, is temp. Your temp at the top would differ from bottom plants. You’d have double light heat too.
I will be using 2 hlg65 lights to veg early and I have a fan that circulates air at the top to keep temp consistent. One way to find out I guess. It’s the most cost effective way to make more room.
Yeah it maximizes space. I do the same in an herb garden. Post some pics when your done.
Got some cleaning to do but this is pretty much it minus one more light. Maybe 2. Lol. It gives me space to veg 4 flower 4. Doubles what I had. Seeds are cracking as we speak with some jh autos.
I think will work fine if you manage plants properly.
