I love the ingeniousness of this set up, definitely frugal.

Are the plants going to be trained wider than they are or is that the width with 5 total stacks?

kit kat, thanks 4 stopping in; not sure exactly what ur askin @ the 5 stacks width....
ideally the donut would be full-ish of plant matter, but w only 5 towers of plants & plants being this size (which is prolly a lil large for this kinda grow, bt maybe not) i will be depending upon them streching in early flowering to fill this space.

im trainin them out, as wide as i can get them, ideally to fill the donut of lite.

i have considered using a metal mesh ring inbetween the canopy and light to further train the branches outward as well as keeping them a safe (& hopefully ideal) distance from the light.

I meant the towers (when I said stacks) but you definitely answered my question with your response.

glad it helped, im considering throwing another tower or even 2 in here and just sayin F&%# it to the plant count vibes.... problem is they would most likely not be 2 towers of chunky diesel, which makes me think leave it as is.... ever tinkering.... i could do 2 more twisted towers of "pink" pheno flo x grim (best yet) and that would be exciting for me indeed.

also, considering some kinda sideways veg where clones come straight out of cloner/ rockwool tray & dome into the big cups, on shelves, then stack them after a week or 2 on the shelves (choosing alpha clones, culling bullshiter & mutants) just the obvious stuff to create a perpetual type scenario... simply ideally.

also,
wasnt the used bulb (which i replaced w. a brand new hortilux anyhow), it was the ballast that went, which i also replaced today w one from storage.
& tomorrow i plan on getting some reflectix to wrap the entire cup-colosseum then this thing is more or less on auto-pilot except for watering every other day or so.

I'm considering bottom feeding as well to prevent the bottom pot from compacting & see how well capillary action will draw moisture up from a tray under the base pot.
