I am building a flower room utilizing vertical and horizontal lighting. I am using 600w HPS bulbs paired to Galaxy 600/400w switchable ballasts. All are controlled using a Helios 15 240V from Sun Systems. Genetics are Bianca, Caramelicious, and Durban Poison, all H1 seeds from AMS. Vegetative performance is achieved using 400w MH bulbs paired with Galaxy 400/250w switchable ballasts. Nutrients will be delivered via a combination DWC/Ebb and Flow system constructed using 3and 5 gallon buckets. Ebb and flow action will exchange the DWC puddle in the 5 gallons, as well as flooding the root ball. Air stones in each site will provide O2 for roots. Nutrients are Mineral form to avoid yucky poo water. Target Ph is 5.7-6.0. Target Temp is 76F/24C. Target PPm's/EC vary by stage of course. Target RH is 30%. Please feel free to post questions and comments, as long as it's civilized. No salesman please. seeds were germinated on the 15th! Here we go!
P.S. I'm called nuts, crazy,weird,lunatic, Etc. at least twice a day. I know I'm not maximizing my light. The object is the maximize the plants, as I can only legally grow 12. 8 will be in the flower room. 4 are mothers, but are considered flower because of the size.
