    Exclamation Grow Room 1m X 1m X 2m, How Many Plants?

    hey guys, I am going to start my new grow shortly. My space will be 1m x 1m x 2m. I am going to use a 250 hps light for all stages of growth along with sum smaller strip lights down the sides for extra lighting. Honestly now, how many plants can I grow with this space? Some of my buddies saying 4, some say 5-6 and others as many as I can fit in there! Unfortunately the 250 hps light is all i can use at this time. How many Im taking a vote! Thank you all in advance.
    Peace

    well you want 50watts per square foot of growth so to use all space effective you would need a 450watt bulb. What you decide is based on your own setup, do you need room to veg or clone? With the extra lighting you could probably use the whole room or at least up to 6-7 square feet effectively.

    Id say 5 plants max and that may be pushing it. You have room for a whole lot more but your wattage on your light has you limited!

    If you grow 12/12 the way Cees from No Mercy Seeds does it, you can fit 21 plants in 1m2. http://www.420magazine.com/forums/no...ar-system.html

    I personally would grow 4 only.

    Thanks guys. So if I upgrade the bulb to 450 hps, for vegging and flowering can i comfortably do 5-6? or should I stick to 4?

    Peace

    Here is a room of similar size with 2 almost full grown plants and 4 12/12 babies. Note that the right plant has been cropped, and the left supercropped 2 times on the main stem to keep them from getting too tall.

    4 would be MAX. (If you are vegging to 18"-24", then flowering)

    ^Mate, please stop posting questions off topic all over the place. You started a thread of your own. Please use it. That is why you are not getting answers to your off topic posts.
