newbie grow room lighting question
Hey my room is 8ft long by 6ft by 3 ft wide. Imm wondering if i should split it up with two 400w hid lights in cool tubes or go with two t5 8bulb lights and scrog grow. Im concerned about height. Let me know what you think. Thanks
I veg under T5 and Flower under HPS and am very happy with the results so far.
The benefit of having 2 lights is if one goes out ya still got something going. HID will give you better results...imo
Height can be controlled in a number of ways. I love my cooltube as I grow in a 4'x4'x7' space as well.
The height will be determined in large part by when you decide to start flowering your plants (genetics also). You can also control their height by FIMming and topping your plants, making them grow thicker rather than taller. There's tons of information about this if you want to make bushier plants and avoid running them into the ceiling or above direct light
Id go with 2x400's bc of the penetration of the hid's and with a scrog id imagine that would be helpful, as well as air cooled hoods so u can get the bulb closer to the canopy to utilize that intensity for the lower growth. I'm not knockin t5's as I have one myself but idk if id be one to go full term with em unless I had to.. .02
