    The best way to run vertical is with leds or cob's?

    Hey guys I'm trying to design an air cooled vertical scrog with 4 -6 nets surrounding a single light and I wanted to incorporate supplemental led lighting but I can't think of a way to do so. Any thoughts.. Not well versed in Lee's btw but im not above research

    Only if someone is cheap enough to do so.

    I'm using 150 mm pin-style heat sinks from TastyLED.com

    They'll be good for 95W of my COB.

    LED doesn't lend itself to round grows. The light is more directional so it works better with flat panels.

    Guys I would like to run some lm561c strips, drive eveything rly soft.
    I grow in a 2x2, 2ft space from plants to leds, plant container is 8".
    Do you think I would have enough space between plants and leds?
    I will make a sog grow in 1/2gal.

    Just found this thread. I am strongly considering changing up my tent for the next grow from this:
    20171111_094355.jpg

    to a vertical grow. The above grow was in a 4x4 area that produced 1.6 pounds from 6 plants at a bit over 1000 watts of cheap led strips. My current grow is in a 5x5 with 700 watts overhead and 360 side/perimeter lighting. The plan is to do 2 opposing vertical walls in the 5x5 with 2 plants on each wall. The above 2' x 4' light panels will be hung to shine on the walls with 2 or 3 panels per wall. Each panel is capable of 360+ watts each so 4 of the 2x4 panels would be 720- ish watts shining on each wall for a total of 1440 watts, or I could do 6 panels for 1080 watts per wall. The power supplies are adjustable so I can dim them as much as I want. In theory there could be 2 walls of 5x5 greenery in there, effectively doubling my grow area. Whatcha think?


    p.s. This is a link to the above picture's grow

    Hi On the vertical grow how much space is needed up from the face of wall to far side of the pot?

    I'd love to help you, but I am new to this vertical stuff. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will chime in.

    Doing a vertical hydroponic sog with scrog net. Led lit with cxbs3590s. I have done a similar style before, with decent success but due to moving to a new place did not look after that grow too well and did not check the weight of the yield. It showed me that it was a viable system so i tweaked it slightly and it looks to be much easier to play with.
