    Well I have a good amount more so 15x15 rooms it is. I have 90x20 total available space.. so I'll build it with a hallway.

    Did find this just now:


    Minimum Lighting 25 watts Per Square Foot


    Lighting
    The minimum recommended lighting for your area is 5625 watts
    Ventilation
    The minimum flow rating of your fan should be 1312.5 Cubic Feet per Minute (CFM)
    Power Requirements
    This setup will require 30.5 amps to be available at all times for safest operation*
    Optimum Lighting 40 watts Per Square Foot

    Lighting
    The optimum reccomended lighting for your area is 9000 watts
    Ventilation
    For optimum ventilation the flow rating of your fan should be around 1443.8 Cubic Feet per Minute
    Power Requirements
    This setup will require 48.8 amps to be available at all times for safest operation*
    Maximum Lighting 60 watts Per Square Foot

    Lighting
    The maximum reccomended lighting for your area is 13500 watts
    Ventilation
    Going this way you will require a fan with a flow rating of at least 1706.3 Cubic Feet per Minute
    Power Requirements
    This setup will require 73.1 amps to be available at all times for safest operation*
    Additional Comments
    Getting to these points and or over it is highly reccomended the grower use Co2 in their room as your plants will only be able to photosythesise a certain amount of light before needing a Co2 boost to benifit

    Well I'm glad to see your doing a bit more research. You need to read everything you can, and have a clear game plan if you want to be successful at running a grow that big. I know a lot of people will tell you to start small and that your going to fail, blah blah blah. Fuck that, if you can read enough, learn how to sift through the bullshit and come up with a plan, start as big as you want.

    I'm sure you've realized by now that unless you have the $$$ to buy at least 12,000 more watts (NOT 40 300w CFLs though..:mrgreen:) AND a way to deal with the heat those lights produce, then you are wasting your time building such massive rooms.

    If you only have 2000w per flowering room and 7' ceilings, I'd build a small space, cram it full and scrog like a mad man.

    Good luck.

    Good suggestion, @PKHydro. OP: You could do a nice little vertical grow space with two thouies, but with 7' ceilings you might want to do the scrog thing first. I agree with that approach, totally, and then you can iterate on the methods and scale as you go and as you can afford to reinvest in gear. I have seen some real disasters with people diving into an operation at that scale right out of the gate. I am envious of that amount of grow area, but also a little intimidated by it.

    Walk, don't run.

    Well I am a 3rd generation nurseryman and landscaper.. we have a 300 acre tree farm.
    So growing things is already a known. I did do a ton of research prior to joining and read a bit on here.. I really greatly appreciate all the information from you guys on here!!

    But I'm scaling it to 10x10 rooms 3 plants per 1000 watt light. I have 4 Sun System XXXL's, I'm doing a diy water chiller, 12 site Undercurrent in 5gallons with 8" net pots using float stone with rock wool as the medium.

    My nutrients will be Cultured Solutions hydro line..

    Am I starting to get in line now?

    Absolutely looks better size wise, more realistic to get cranked up, though I do agree with PK, you can start big, just gotta do your homework and get after it

    DIY water cooler sounds sketchy for such a mission critical piece of equipment.

    BTW...
    Here is a link to a lighting calculator I found online. Super easy to use!! Maybe the mods could steal the code for it and add it on the site?

    ** won't let me post the wording even of a WTF link :(

    Some idiot that posts in the general grow section and aways gives the worst advice. He can't type, spell, or grow to save his life.

    I give him shit every time I see him post something stupid and he reports me lol but even the mods know he's a dumbass. He reports me to "roolitup" lmao did you notice that?
