welp - after much thinking and desperately trying to figure out how to get my room dialed in. i just went into it and started working, basically cause i couldnt figure out shit to execute without cutting large holesin floor or exterior walls.
I live next door to leo, and i dont want holes anywhere outside if at all possible
my last attempt worked ok for around 18 moths or so but wasnt able to keep my temps down below 84ish with 1600w going, let alone any humidification
i had 2 fans in my room as well
basically i was stressing my girls with so much direct wind on them
so i took them down along with the upper shelves, i might reuse them but prolly not
anyways i was messing with the cooltube ducting and noticed that, instead of it pulling air through and out the top, my ac was pushing hot air exhaust back into the light.
so i decided to disconnect that and block off that section for a sec and try something counter intuitive
anyways , i took that intake from the bottom and moved it to the top to shorten up the run and now i was pushing hot air out the bottom of the cooltube
i decided to run some flex from the bottom over behind the ac unit where the evaporator is in the back
within minutes my room was 72*

i was shocked

so its winter and the room was around and stays around 30% rh

i decided to bust out the ol homemade humidifier again
i took that flex from the bottom of the cooltube into the humi
and hooked it up and voila , that positive,warm airflow from the light is now holdong a steady 50% with no extra fans but that inline in the attic!
so to test even further, i fired up another 600w bulb and have it running bareback to the tune of about 74* in there. ive never
ever
had a proper sub 80* 50% rh environment to flower in

evar

so im gonna try two 600s at 400 and the full 1k tomorrow and see what sort of temps we get.
after manymany grows ive come to the conclusion im never gonna do much more than 1oz dried bud per 2 gallons of soil
so if i have 1600 watts of light at any given time, and my goal is 1 gram per watt
thats 64 oz of weed or 128 gallons of soil!
thats 32 4 gal pots or 4 32 gal pots or 6 20 gals or ..
25 5 gal bags, which i like better, they are cheap as fuck and tall but well suited for pot as ive grown many a bud in them
im gonna reamend my soil and add 10% more perlite for better drainage and
ima build shelves that will drain away the overflow and hold the bags - prolly
will try and get "cute" and drain into lower pots, but na, that shit will backfire , cute rarely works ime
welp , i need to line these walls with something, might try to vault the ceilings to reflect back onto the plants as well, thats one "cute" that does work

so as for the lights
ima try 2 600s to run all 12 hours and have the 1k come on at 3 hrs in and run for 6 then shut down to see how that works for about what 1.8k wt average?
some of these ideas i borrowed from rykus, whos a pretty good vert guy
so dont think im thievin, shout outs to him
