    It's green and it has a hole in the middle (600w)



    Stage: Day 13 of 12/12
    Light: 600w HPS
    Strains: TWxPD and a bagseed clone
    Medium: Hand watered (!) coco/perlite in 3 gallon Smart Pots
    Dimensions: something like 4x4.5ish. Maybe 8.5ish high.
    Extraction fan: 320cfm no filter needed unless it gets super obscene stinky.
    Bulb fan: 90mm Delta PC fan sitting on a RocketPot (like a tall skinny square Air Pot)
    Nutes: Maxigro and now Maxibloom. SilikaMajic (only started recently). I also run some pond bacteria/enzyme type of thing in a bottle. I also gave them all molasses tonight since I couldn't find my Epsom and one has mag def showing.
    PH & EC meters: HARD MODE (none)
    Water: Low EC tap & occasionally rain
    Favorite colour: Blue.

    Hi! This is my second hps grow. My first attempt at a donut ended up more like a tubular jungle and was pretty underwhelming. I wasn't reading icmag tips/grows at the time so I didn't realise things like bulb height were so important. I also only realised this grow that my extraction fan was set on low, lol.

    I made a few big improvements in the cab too and it all seems to be paying off. I also switched it up this round from bagseed to the awesome Trainwreck x Princess Diesel. These are new seeds from a very generous 'magger since I lost the ones I was growing a while back. A gentleman and a scholar you are, thanks.

    There's three of the Trainwrecks and two clones of the only bagseed pheno that I liked. I also had a bagseed clone spare so that's still in veg and will go outside in some weeks or so.

    Here's the stumpy TW I take out of the doorway to allow access:



    Another TW:



    Please feel free to comment on anything. In fact I got a question:



    Should I remove those side bits for better air flow? And does it matter that I have a pretty low grow but a high ceiling? Do people ever use like a mini chinahat or similar when the bulb is raised high?

    Thanks for lookin! Happy 420.

    The eye of the storm... Glad to see you're rolling vertical.

    I've wondered about the "hat" idea. I'd like to try one if I ever go vert. Not sure if the bracket affects air flow. It might retain heat but probably not enough to raise canopy temps.


    Have a great weekend.

          I would have to agree, it kind of acts like a heatsink for the socket. I think it is a solution in search of a problem kinda situation for ya since your still getting the hang of things.

                    I would trim those fan leaves and get more flow imho.

                    Good growing!

                          I would not trim till after the stretch is over then take what is not in the light out. I have trimmed in stretch before and ended up with less bud and a longer flower time.

                              I would def take those sides off....what could it hurt? only effect it would have is allowing better air flow around the light...
