Got it!now I just got to fill it!
Can't wait to see this in action, looking good brother!
Count me in for the show
This should be enjoyable, mind if I hang out with you folks?
Since I have not paid attention to others who have grown stadium may I ask a question, dumb or not.
In the photo I have drawn boxes, will that be about the shape of each levels grow area. Since I am sure you will lolly pop them I can picture that being the shape. Cool beans, good luck on it.
Do you feel you need the cool tubes? A fan under the lamp and an extraction filter and fan above should keep it cool. You loose spectrum using the cool tubes. I run 2 315's stacked and use this setup and no problems, and the plants grow close to lamps.
This will be fun to watch.
Thanks brother one hit. gr, u know we don’t mind chilling, just breathe in, and try to hold it! Lol. Gr I went with cool tube because i been having them. No special reason y. I don’t know what 315’s r, so if u can I enlighten me, it would b very appreciated. I have never done statium myself, so everything I’m learning now is all trial, and error! I know this grow won’t b perfectly grown, but I will document it on here so we can all see what not 2 do.
315W CMH, Ceramic Metal Halide,
In my vertical grows I run two stacked bare bulb.
In my horizontal grows I run them side by side in their reflectors.
I have remote ballast so my temps are very manageable.
Ceramic metal halide! Wtf! Why u didn’t tell me bout this sooner gr! Lol! I never knew they made a ceramic bulb. That would honestly benefit not using the tubes because I wouldn’t have to use the in-line fans to cool! Wouldn’t have to have the ugly ducting neither! Plus the benefits u mentioned about loosing light. Thanks gf. I will do my research tonight on them bulbs.
Gf, love the garden man!
I have a 420 CFM extraction fan down stream of my Phresh charcoal filter, never run that high though. Use one fan to move air in the tent and one extraction fan.
I do have a small fan that blows air into the closet where the tent is to cool the two ballast hanging on the walls.
I was reading up on them chm bulbs, and they r saying it’s more heat than a regular hps/mh bulb. When u hear the word “ceramic”, I first think of a cooler bulb, but this is not the case for these. I’ll just stick with what I got. Me living near Captain Hook, I have dreaded heat/humidity. It takes sum money to keep me cool.
I do like the wavelengths the cmh’s give out.
And the cost to run them.
Gr, yes your squares is accurate to my grow. Probably will lollipop. But I am far away from even flowering.
