      It's one week later and they've already grown, some of them substantially (an inch or two). I culled two males. They're sucking up water and nutes like crazy.

        looking very good bro! Blowing up for sure

        Any chance you can flip the bulbs orientation around?

        Significantly less light is emitted from the base of the bulb compared to the tip. I'd try it so the bottom bulb is pointing upwards, and the top bulb is pointing down. Focusing all that light towards the middle, most productive section, just a little thing to consider that may help.

        Toke it easy

          I was actually thinking of doing this with a 48" cooltube, which is about $170. I'm a cheap bastard so I'm holding off at the moment but will likely upgrade. It would also stabilize things distance-wise in the room.

            Lookin' good. What a difference a week around a HPS will make!

            I thought about a double cool tube too. . . even if just to stabilize the lights, keep them in one spot & allow me to work around a bulb that's off (but still hot) without burning myself or having to raise the lamp up. I'm not sure about the loss of light though.

            Your garden will have the bulbs orientated with the sockets towards the ceiling/floor once the bulbs are properly stacked around taller plants, right?

              Come again?

              My plan is to use that cooltube (which I just found a deal on and bought), on top of the fan, with no other tubing. I'm actually going to elevate the plants on a platform to get more control over the height of the cooltube, if that makes sense.

                            So I couldn't get the dual cooltube posted above because of outrageous shipping charges. Basically, the unit is too fragile to ship with regular packaging, so it's shipped on its own slate. This makes the shipping charges over $100.

                            Instead, under the advisement of someone at one of the companies, I'm going to get 2x 23inch cooltube knockoffs and mount them vertically. This is ideal anyway because i have more control over their position, and the cord is placed out of the side instead of the top/bottom.

                              Wishing there was a cheap and efficient way to set up a vertical scrog in tents like that.

                              You know... sturdy, modular, cheap. I can imagine not needing the cooltubes at all if you could pin those plants to the walls, eh?

                              Looking really cool in there regardless.

                              Stay Safe!

                                make individual vert screens like marlo's original racks.you can make 8 racks around 16 inches wide with 2x2 wood 3 feet tall screwed into a pie shaped piece of plywood.use a 16 inch piece of 2x2 across the top.it is basically a 16 wide by 36 inch tall rectangle mounted to a pie shaped piece of plywood.the base is pie shaped so you can fit the eight of them in a circle around your lights.mount your choice of fencing for your screen.wood is alot cheaper then buying all that pvc like marlos.i used 4 inch squere fencing for my screen.those dimensions make a complete 44 to 46 inch circle around your light.these diminsions will work for up to 4 foot circle but all you have to do is modify sizes to accomidate what area you have.
