The closet in the room will be too small for my liking. Also is there a way to do a perpetual vert grow with clones and limited veg. Thanks in advance.
400W is way to small for that room, in that size room you could do a vertical tree grow. I run a 400W in a 4x4 tent. With that light you could put 5, maybe 6 plants.
Indoor Vertical Grow Systems 101
Previous grow 5 plants on screens, single 400W.
One of the plants from that grow.
This picture is my set up for my next grow, doing stacked 315W CMH and 400W HPS.
In this pic it shows the stand for the bottom light the 400W. The 315 will be hung at the top. I can move the plants anywhere from 14" to 21" from the lamps.
Hope this helps, and good luck. Put a lot of homework into this, as much as I did, I have still spent to much $$$ on my set up. It will pay for itself over time. I only grow for my own meds.
