I don't recommend this setup for a Gavita grow. 4x4 area per light. If you would use tables on rollers for example placing 6 gavitas over a 9.6 ft by 16 ft canopy you would still receive 700-800 which is good enough to pull 2.5-3 a light. You may maximize grams per square meter by doing 1000 watts over 4x4 but to increas grams per watt spread lights more and put your tables on rollers to take advantage of cross lighting. That's how you get 3 a light assuming that you are using a closed environment with co2. I'm from sfv valley. Don't lose the potent is grams per watt you can be achieving.
This is spot on. Roller casters for the tables. No aisles. Maximize what DE Gavitas have to offer. I see since cannabis becoming more tolerated and legal...the old Dutch Roller Greenhouse benches starting to come back into play. I remember these in High Times mags back in 1986/87. With the flood/drip inserts and that smelly glue your supposed to use for custom fits. Lol. Yeah. I was there. So long ago. And now it all comes back around again. Rockwool becoming king again..lol. Except now..they kinda let you do your thing. Back then...nope. Been there too. Good thread.
