    Ok, so I have a thread about this grow as it is a newly constructed warehouse grow but honestly, the thread is full of jack holes and guys that wear diapers.

    Not that I am looking for everyone to pander to me or anything but I really don't feel like explaining why I'm not running LED in my fucking warehouse..or putting god damn solar panels on the roof. Might as well paint a sign....huge medical grow here.

    Anyways, I figured the vertical forum would be less full of dip shits. There comes a time when you really don't have any questions about growing or setup; and you just want to show some people one of the many techniques out there.

    Just installed buckets and cages. Should be ready to put plants in the room in about a week. (still waiting on permits) They will be flipped about a week after that.

    So the low down:
    32 plants
    32 hortilux
    vertical bare bulbs
    DWC with a central reservoir
    two 235 gallon reservoirs
    AC and CO2.. fucking duh
    heavy 16 nutes, weekly biowar tea.
    a bunch of other crap that doesn't matter.
    Oh yeah..cages are 28" square. Checkerboard pattern...distance to bulb = 14" at surface of cage.

    Your using one plant per bulb? Sounds badass! and expensive for me. I still haven't given vitical growing a try yet but definitely want to. Care to explain how the system will work?

    It works put like this... of the 32 plants, 18 of them will be basking in 4000 watts. 22 of them get 3000 watts and 3 get a measly 2k watts :(

    Since we are not retarded, we don't grow in coco or soil which equates to way fast growth and great yields.

    Across the board, if we don't have issues, we pull am average of just a cunt hair over 2lb per light.

    The fun comes in when training and trimming the plants. Ever spend 5 hours crouching under cages or standing 6" away from a 1,000 watt bulb? It's SUPER fun!!!

    It sucks dick but you know what doesn't suck dick? Bringing very nice buds to the dispensories, having our patients stoked and watching 20's flip through the bill counter like a happy little waterfall :).

    So that's how it works.

    It looks neat and awesome and all that shit but the reality is its a LOT of work. Plain old blue collar work.

    Should be something good to watch.. Have you used the Heavy 16 nutes before? Im just now looking at them have a few shops trying to push me into using them. I have been trying to contact Heavy 16 as I want to do a side by side grow using their nutes and do a review and write up but they don't reply in the 48 hours their auto responder says.

    Sounds like you'll be walking through one awesome jungle! Gotta admit I'm pretty jealous, I'll be following along to see how amazing it turns out :weed:

    Fucking awesome! Is all I can say. I love your sarcasm behind talking about how much fun being a farmer is. Farming is about as menial labor as it gets. But vertical tree farming is much more lucrative. Can't wait to see this.

    A flux of 1000 lumens, concentrated into an area of one square metre, lights up that square metre with an illuminance of 1000 lux. However, the same 1000 lumens, spread out over ten square metres, produces a dimmer illuminance of only 100 lux.
    "On the surface of the Earth, the average solar illumination varies between 32,000 and 100,000 lumens per square meter, or lux."

    400 lux Sunrise or sunset on a clear day.
    1000 lux Overcast day; typical TV studio lighting
    10000–25000 lux Full daylight (not direct sun)
