    Hello. I am a new poster here, but long time lurker. I have several successful grows under my belt. Everything from hydro to organic soil.

    Currently I need to do some small plant number grows and would like to go vertical. I have scrog'd in the past and truly like the results. These will be small cabinet, stealth grows and I wanted to know if my idea is possible/plausible.

    The flower "rooms" would be 2.5' x 2.5' x 6'. I was thinking of running two 600w hps bulbs stacked in cool tubes with a 465 cfm pulling ambient air, 70 degrees, vented out of the room. Then I would run a carbon scrubber with passive intakes. The room would be lined with the net and due to space was thinking of utilizing three walls, leaving the front to work from. This would give me roughly 24.5ft^2 of grow space Organic soil in 5 gal smarties with a perlite/water sip system. 4 plants max at a time ( I know =(). I was thinking 2 veg and 2 flower so a harvest every 8 to 9 weeks.

    Any ideas or input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I would invest in light mover and do the same setup twice. Other than that see nothing to change or add. I just set my 3x3 up with a 600w and will be doing the light mover soon. Have four plants in there one is in a portable setup so I can get in and out.

    Thank you. So would you keep the set up of stacked 600s? Just wondering, as heat may be an issue, and the tubes on movers I cant fully wrap my head around.

    One mover would run two lights. I would run one light bare in each box on a mover for a total of two spaces. Vs using both bulbs in one space.

    I may have been too vague. I actually have three lights. the 600s for flower and a 400, soon to be 600 for veg. Was thinking veg 6-8 weeks, lst'ing and training, and then switching to flower room tie branches and proceed through stretch. Just wondering which way could yield better: 2 plants in a rotating cycle with my latter method with a 1200w flower chamber or 4 at once with 600w in two cabs.

    I would advocate not using the cool tube. The rest sounds on point.

    That's a lot of space for one plant to cover in 8 weeks, maybe it's normal I don't know , just saying, it sounds a lot ;p.
