plans for vert but is it better off flat?

ok so heres my horrific drawing of my aero garden im planning builduing next week or when ever my aero misters get delivered from america ( my uniseals took 6 weeks)

top view....



side view....



so that gives u the general idea. the drawings a disgrace agreed but once u stop laughing id like to hear thoughts on this, would i be better off running this flat and have 3 x 600w in coolhoods above it? i really dont wanna go back to flat gardens as this way is much more efficiant and easyer for enviromental control etc etc. i could also run perp this way if i ran vert bulbs.

anyway any advice comments or just to compliment me on my microsoft paint skills then fire away

thanks sqydro

Actly, good draw'n!

Only way vert bulbs make sense is if u wrap em 360' w plants. I shld say that to achv the yield effcy, u need to wrap. Just for exmple... You cld tech run the tubes 8-9' and also add end caps w plants on either side... And the inside of the end bulbs r wasted, along w both sides of the middle bulb... They r shining onto eachother vs directly on plants and/or reflected back to the canopy. Of that makes sense at all. Wastin some of the area u cld cover w plants, so not achv'n the most fr the bulbs.

W that line of thinkin, wld rather use hori hoods w the a frame layout, just spread it to best of ability. Buit it sure is easier and cheaper to run em bare verti. Just an opinion to start u off w. Gl... Should b a fun project! Peace
