This is a question I am puzzling over.
I have a full basement in my house and was going to start up an attempt in a few weeks. I was thinking that rather than fight all kinds of circulation issues that I would just grow in an open area. (My basement is 1150 square feet.)
Is there any particular benefit to growing in such a very small space or is that done just for stealth purposes?
Is there any particular harm in growing in an open space?
FYI: Basement stats:
Temp: 69 at night to 79 in day.
Humidity: Currently limited to 50. Can increase to 75 if dehumidifier is turned down.
Light: Will be combination of old 175 watt Halide used for reef tanks and two dual 40 watt 40" florescent fixtures.
Thanks in advance for any advice on how to set it up. I’ve ordered in the 5 + 5 free WW and am going to start with only two plants to see how it works out.
