    As you can see I have white drapes on top and the floor I was thinking of spreading the wings on my reflector like this wing.jpg

    Then draping more white sheet things on the outsides to surround the whole grow area like so drapes.jpg


    Do you think that would give a better spread of light to all the foliage and not just the top because the wings right now focus the light down as you can see. If I surround the grow area then spread the wings I was thinking it would spread the light better, what are your thoughts?

    spreading wings on your reflector is counter productive.

    I was going to ask if you noticed any increase in heat? With all that room and fans you may not. The above poster is correct to see if you can improve the reflexror. I didn't see the wattage. The Blockbuster is good. I know folks that use MagnumXXXL running 1000w bulbs...prolly OK for lesser wattage..not sure since I don't use them. Plans for ventilation and odor control?

    Alright I did it guys, As for the post about spreading wings being counter productive, how is it counterproductive to spread them and have all that light diffused back to lower foliage?

    I went to the hydro shop and bought some panda paper, went home ripped off the cheap white table clothe off the top and then built this :) Spread the wings on the light and now is super bright in the grow area, BRIGHTER THAN IT WAS WITH THE WINGS FOLDED AND CONCENTRATED LIGHT! It seems like it will make a noticeable difference

    Have you considered doing a SCROG grow? Would work great with your setup

    Maybe with my next crop only because I need to research it some more and get set up so I can do it without any hiccups on the road to buds :p

    You've been O.D.ing a little on the nutes i see...lol.
    You should check your E.C. Write it down with age of ladies, then next time you'll know at that stage their optimum nutrient uptake, do this through out the grow and your next go will be a piece of piss, no deficiencies,no toxicity. Oh, you're using soil, sorry! Though they are a little nitrogen toxified. K.K.

    oh get some adjusta wing avenger with spreader light reflectors. Everyone on here rates ac hoods, I like my adjusta wings, good wide spread, get low,low,low, I hope they'll make this grow better, last time I used your type and bent them too, got bleaching and a little burn, I had to raise them causing stretching of my kola:( yield was ok, this time though I hope for better, fan speed controller I added too. Good luck to you mate, good growing too. K.K.

    I agree, I spread mine for the same reason. Also I had heat concerns, then when I spread the reflectors the heat went down a couple degrees cause heat didnt build up as easily

    Yea as for the size of the room and only having 2-4 plants at a time flowering I never had ventilation and have been fine, I tested the air with CO2 test tubes while the plants were locked in there flowering and it was still at a steady 500 ppm Norm for ambient air inside and out so even if I had been circulating air big time I don't think I would have seen a difference.

    Now I can see needing it when I start having the whole room filled with plants

    I have no clue what the heck you are talking about because no nutes have been given to any of these plants.....only FFOF soil which has all the right stuff for at least a month of feeding.....Soooo.....Nothing is has Nitrogen toxicity and nohting is Yellow from lack of nitrogen.....
