Lighting question

Hey everyone, I’m trying to set a friend up for a temporary hit and run indoor setup to get 1 run in before he moves. It’s going to be nothing fancy. The space is 7 feet long by a little of 3 feet wide by roughly 7 feet high. It’s in an underground cement basement(helps keep cool) There isn’t going to be any exhaust fans other than a small fan to circulate air(there will be a small a/c in the basement but no in the actual grow room part of the basement) 18 plants. Do you think a 600 hps will get too hot for this setup? And other recommendations on lighting(we are trying to do this on the cheap for a hit and run before setting up his new house the right way and I’m paying) any recommendations on lighting please speak up...thank you.

I'd run LEDs. Even then you may have temp issues without some type of cooling. I'm using a couple of Forever Green Indoors FGI Uniformity Pro fixtures. They are still using older tech for diodes which you can also buy for considerably less money direct from China through alibaba. Search for Kingbright if you go there.

HLG's Quantum boards are great but strip lighting gives you better light distribution.

If you are going hps, a 600 won’t be enough for that space... IMO
They get hot too

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
And revolving at 900 miles an hour.
It's orbiting at 90 miles a second, so it's reckoned,
The sun that is the source of all our power.
The the sun, and you and me, and all the stars that we can see,
Are moving at a million miles a day,
In an outer spiral arm, at 40, 000 miles an hour,
Of a galaxy we call the Milky Way.

youve got to exhaust somewhere m8 or the odour will end up in the property.


with a fan youd be good with a 600, id run 600x400 in winter months but do not neglect odour control and replenishing stale air with fresh.

Hey man as Cmoon says... FRom what you describe the lighting would be my least worry.
Even if you are running a sealed room with CO2 you will still need to vent from time to time and it does sound like without the sealed approach you plants will not get enough fresh CO2 in general as long as you don't put in a good cfm amount of intake and exhaust venting.
That said the Mars lights are quite good, haven't tried any of the others yet...

All the best and good luck
