Well I have a very high celing in this closet, 9 feet! It is 3'wide x 5 1/2' long by 9 feet high. Unless my math eludes me that is 148.5 cubic feet. I'm really unsure what I should get for lighting that space, is 600w overkill? 400w sufficient? Would rather I only used a 400w but wanna maximize. Off to a friends aunts hydro store Next week so a little time to research before I go shopping.
The ladies in the 2000 will probably be saved by the jump to hps, otherwise yield would be prob disappointing after recent moisture stress tragedy. I plan on flowering as many as I can in this closet so I need to make the hps movable a bit. I am still gonna leave the veg shelf in, perhaps a few plants up higher Under smaller hps or mh. Torn between going to the local industrial area for ballast and bulb or just using my buddies aunts store with a hefty discount. Decisions!!!
