    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. B68D1013-D89F-420E-88EA-2EE30FF461A7 (1)_LI.jpg

    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.

    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.

    Hah, you're going to hate me even more then! They make vertical fixtures to put DE bulbs in and I'll be taking a look into those my next grow most likely.

    I did a 5 plant 600w vertical grow, currently hanging so I'm still waiting to see how well I did but it's looking like it'll be a very impressive run. Much better than anything I've got from horizontal growing for damn sure.


    With what I've seen from both vertical growing and how the DE bulbs work, I bet I could fill a 10x15 room with 2 1000w DE bulbs in a vertical set up. Definitely something to experiment with as I'm pretty satisfied with what I've got thus far.

    Subbed on your journal.

    @ Thedunnaman

    Check this out, it is comparing, 315W CMH vs 600W HPS. It also compares those with a DE 315W and a 450W LED prototype.



    They state that the 315W is comparable to the 600W in par @ 36 inches but the 315 light is more intense, provides more UV to the plant and has less heat. I would say it is more like a 500W HPS, but still the heat is the big thing,

    Now for the update! I must say it is a muther F$&ker trying to get these mother’s right. Had them to compacted in the tent and started to catch the powdery mildew!!!! Eeeewwww!!!! So went online and picked up sum banish, and sum smite (just Incase). I also picked up sum potassium bicarbonate. Since the potassium bicarbonate is organic, I will use this for prevention on the clones in the preflower phase.
    I seen, I saw, and I kicked it’s ass! Now I have to hit the tent 3 times a day to check to see if any watering is needed! This is a pic I just took before I started cutting the new single stalk clone mothers, to give me the bonzi mums I need to fill this fucker!!!!

    So I got 9 seed children! 6 th heavy duty fruity, and 3 elemental Huckleberry.
    3 Huckleberry all female. Names; Jordan, Bobbie, and Gabriel.
    3 HDF are female. Names; May-lee, Chung-lee, Sam.
    2 HDF are male. Names; Han, and Sydney.
    1 HDF is hard to clone, so I do not know the sex on it. But it does have a Name; Val.

    I like to name them instead of having numbers. If u take care of them like your kids, then why not name them!
