probably somewhere in the neighborhood of 6000+ watts. plants that big and you aren't getting more than 4 per light. why so many strains? that's gona be a bitch to grow.
at least 5000...checkot nugbuckets thread on mainlining to get 8 colas
wanted to have a variety is it bad to have alot of strains in the same grow, thanks for your input dardestruction/doc

30 plants @ 2-3 feet after vegging and hoping for 1/2 a pound per plant?
go with about 25k watts to be safe. you might be able to pull it off with less.
justification: wants 8 x 28 = 224 grams per plant. wants 30 plants. 30 x 224 = 6,720 grams.
an expert grower can do a gram per watt. something tells me that although ambitious, we don't have an expert grower.
so go with 1/2 gram per watt, about what a decent grower can pull off, that gives us about 14k watts.
throw in beginner error, that gives us about 25k watts (roughly).

If you are new at this, like I am, start with 12. Much easier to maintain and the attention you will give them will be rewarding when growing small numbers. I added a dual zone split ac and a co2 generator this time around. Everything seems good 28 days in flower.
thats a badass setup thx for stoping by
