    Once I get my first grown or two (or three or more!) down, I really want to try this. I read about it in my reasearch before i started and figured I’d best learn how to grow ONE at least before trying to hack one *lol*

    Your pics make it seem effortless!

    It's an easy process. Best tutorial is located at www.growweedeasy.com. Do it now with one plant and you'll be hooked.

    You definitely have more patience that I do! I think I was drawn to it early on due to space limitations. ONE day soon I'll be free from my locale and living where I can go BIG.

    I’ve been researching for TWO months on tent equipment, lights, strain types, hydro methods, soil methods, lst, nutrients, ph and god only knows what else. So yeah, been planning the living crap outta this. Sprouted 2 blueberry autoflowers Monday and dropped them into grow sponges in my AeroGarden while waiting for the rest of my equipment to get here - Hubby is gonna help set it all up this weekend! I’m stoked!

    I'm excited as all get out. Many steps to take before we can head out but I'm confident in our plan.

    Nice setup! Any reason not to run the cones on the bottom of the lights to redirect light?

    IMG_1701.JPG IMG_1711.JPG IMG_1704.JPG IMG_1705.JPG IMG_1707.JPG I was pulling 250 watts, so while the meter was hooked up i took a couple of measurments like you did, and marked 315 watts and 360 watts, as the next to increases,, right now i am set at 270 watts,,
    well, just when i thought i was done, I took off all the metal tie downs, and put on some clips and green ties, and spread space kitties down some, wow, just about leveled the canopy back out,
    I cut one top off of Jack, I knew i would not keep them all, but so far i like the ones that are left IMG_1701.JPG IMG_1711.JPG IMG_1704.JPG IMG_1705.JPG IMG_1707.JPG

    Looking like a beast Tim. I've given up on trying to control the height of one of my plants. Tried to keep it all level but at this point gonna let it rip lol.

    there are going to be several factors that play into the "end game" , can i push full power on the lights,, it will fully depend on how tall the plants get, I dont think there is any way in hell the plants can take 60 watts per square at only 12 inches over tops,,, and i doublt i will be able to keep 21 inches, I can raise the light maybe 3 more inches before it has to move left a bunch to go up next to the exhaust fan, but that makes the light off center?,, so what will happen, its a crap shoot, i have done 2 grows with 250 watts of cob , my old panel pulled 250 and had no dimmers, the second citi panel pulled 250 at full power, and both those grows went well, If thats the case then I am at 270 now, and they look fine ( ill go check them in a mintue),, will i have bigger colas with more watts?,, will it fry leaves?,, will i even be able to dial it up to full power?,, or will the whole thing blow up in a blaze of glory?
