                i knew i was alright, hopefully with the HPS i should pull 7+ grams a cut, so i should be looking at 4 ounces minimum?

                i know my white widow and i know when to turn into flowering, so im pretty much diald in appart from ive never had experience with HID before.

                  How to calculate square footage of your cab

                  First: Measure the width (side to side) of the inside of your cab in inches.

                  Example: Width = 14"

                  Second: Measure the depth (front to back) of the inside of your cab in inches.

                  Example: Depth = 14"

                  Third: Multiply the width (in inches) by the depth (in inches)

                  Example: 14 x 14 = 169

                  Fourth: Divide the above answer by 144 to get square footage

                  Example: 169 / 144 = 1.17361, I round to the nearest hundredth, ie 1.17 sq ft.

                  So Cork144 at 1.17 sq ft, you are in.
