Large Grow Room Designs!
I notices most people here on this site operate out of a tent or converted bedroom or under their stairs lol. a few people have set up some one time garage gros in houses they have rented. i'm looking for people familiar with larger grow rooms, not just people with ideas of how they would do a large room but ones with actual experience! This is a fully legal system. Indoors. and will be permanent.
I included some pics. It will be 1 plant lids, not the 4 you see.
start up cost is not an issue
-8 foot ceilings
-32 site veg room ( for 4 weeks)
-64 site flower room ( harvest every 4 weeks in perpetual)
-not sure about lighting? ideas? im gonna use light movers as it would save run time costs. im thinking LED for clones and mothers! as they will be on 24/7. veg room no idea mh i hear is best for veg, flower room light movers and 600's or 1000's? there will be 2, 3 foot by 20 foot rows. 600's can span across 3 feet no problem so maybe 1 ever 4 feet- thats 5 lights but on lights movers! i think 1000's would be over kill i dunno. thinking of also placing t5's doubles sided down the middle on the bottom to give the bottoms of these 4- 5 foot plants some light too but i dont see many big grow room do that
-heating contractor will take care of heating/cooling and ventilation requirements for the rooms but still need ideas on venting lights
-Its Canada so hot summers, cold winters. I was thinking of using the heat the lights give off to to heat the room in the winter? ideas on how to use dampers for that would be great, Any input would be wonderful.
- 6 pounds of 32 plants stretching it? thats 3oz's per plant, using co2 veg for 4 weeks flower for 8. should be pre vegging after aeropinoc cloner before dwc? do i need 1 plant per 8 gallon dwc or can i get the double plant lids whcih would save 1 whole 16 plant system and lighting. Will it be ok to transfer from a 6inch or 4 inch net pot to 8 inch? any tips so i dont damage roots? or keep it in the same 8 inch net pot straight from after the aeroponic cloner.. If i let the cuttings grow for 4 weeks in the aeroponic you think the roots will be long enough to reach the dwc water level? will they reach for it with in a few days for the water if not?
- full automation using automatic ph and nut balances aas well as water top offs!
Any help would be great guys, this is gonna be fun!
1 pic i put in my possible configuration, the next one is blank, so hey if you have vert ideas or sog ideas that will yeild me way more lets do it, Hey! if you think i can get away with a perpetual Heaths 54oz trees in dwc, rock on im so game! the goal is 6lbs a month so i can make a decent living doing this and quit my day job, btw, this is totally legal! My brother an I have organic veg out door grow rooms and have recently decided to start growing a weed rather than a plant... cant be to hard can it ?
Pleas refrain about your skepticism on a noob first time weed grower, assume i have been growing weed for years, just need your input on the technical.
Oh and what strains would you stick with, im looking to just grow 1 strain nothing fancy mildly potent, large yeild, mid quality. I think i can make the mid quality bud into high quality on curing practices. we have commercial vacuum sealers that will work wonders for keeping that pesky O2 away from our thc crystals!
Thanks again for the read looking forward to meeting you all
if i do a straight 12/12 from cloner, and harvest ever 2 weeks, could it be safe to say if i use this setup with the 4 lid configuration that i can harvest 2 of the 16 pot systems every 2 weeks bring it to a 6 week total grow from cloner or do they need longer? how long is does it take your straight 12/12 scrog grows from straight start to finish? 1 fat cola would be easier to trim anyways lol

In order for you to harvest 6 lbs per month guaranteed, you only need to run a total of 27 Lights (if you harvest 1 lb per light). 3 Lights for veg and 24 lights flowering. You'll probably harvest 9-12 lbs depending on your growing skills, harvest 6 lights every 2 weeks. This can be accomplished with about $50k for everything including construction and hydro equipment, labor, everything.
Grow with top drip coco to start off, then when you have a large savings account, switch over to something like the undercurrent. With an endeavor of this size, you want to make sure you crop out.
As for ideas, your idea and question is too broad. Do you have any specific questions? What are your priorities, plant count, budget, minimal workload, minimal staff, minimal error risk? There are many factors to take into consideration when designing an agricultural production facility.
You have a big space to accommodate more flower and you will have a good budget. Together you need to consider the factors that will give in that space.
