I’m in a bit of a bind, I need a bit more production but don’t have time before winter to build. So I’m wondering about using some gavita 1000 I’ve got a 8 extra. I’d be in a room with only 84” height. Could I get a 4x4 light pattern without the head room? Thinking about 2 10x10 rooms. Would like to get away without buying lights.
I run them with 9 ft. Ceilings but can only really run them on 825 with the stock reflectors. I would think you would have to run them on 750 or 660 unless you buy the more open reflectors. They are intense.
Till 8 week of flowering i run them on full power 1150W but then last 2 weeks
going down to 660-750W... that i do if i run 10 weekers... if you run longer
strains then offcourse later in bloom you made same..
Try to shape your canopy in stadium shape or bowl shape so a heighest plants are
around margins while 4 plants in center try to grow some stout short bushes
genetics.. you will have bigger yields and no burns under lamp..
