I'm with fred, I'm a light greedy mofo to. I can't stand to see light on the floor on a flat setup or past the plants in a vert setup... gotta have that reflectix completely surrounding the plants ftw.

This is a wild setup, do you have any issues with the lower plants wicking the water from plants higher up? This is gonna look good when stretch fills in the voids.

burn

so

upon watering the cups thru... medium compacted......

and like the leaning tower of pisa w the earth shrinking beneath her.... one o the towers began to tip.... one got rather close to the light and was badly burnt:




i think it will make it tho.....

i secured the towers to the base pot (w zip ties) pulling them upright, hopefully this wont happen again....
making me want to put up that metal barrie rbetween bulb and plant canopy...

the rest are fine compared to this one, altho not entirely untouched.

the reflectis is raised, making a difference for sure...

Reflectix raised, very good call.

How are the cups held to the stake? Zip ties? One? One at each end?

ya silver, you had the right idea, getn that off the ground makes for a nice intake, better fan beneath the bulb will do it proper also.

at this point, many zip ties at the top & bottom & in some cases one in the middle, in hindsight, one each would have overbuilt it nicely as a fail safe....

I love this setup. You could be on a first name basis with the 7-11 people or simply known as the "big gulp guy"
