Vertical first attempt

I finally have a little grow space of my own, 6' X 6' X 8' tall.
The plan is 6 ladies in 5 gal buckets dwc, I haven't decided on the strain yet, lighting will be 400w CMH for veg and 600w HPS for flower. The cement blocks are just for mock up there will be a can filter under the cool tube and a 6" centrifugal fan venting the heat. I hope this turns out like I think it's going to, should be lots of fun

looks good, I'd suggest using the 600w all the way through....

Yes you are right, I was just buying myself some time because I don't have a good bulb for the 600. I was also thinking the CMH might help with stretch but that may not be as much of an issue with a vert grow. I guess the right thing to do is get a bulb for the 600 and run it all the way through.

I saw that grow, wow, awesome work!! I hope mine turns out that well. I would like to go bare bulb but I'm not sure about the cooling. I know for sure I can cool the space with a 6" centrifugal fan sucking air at the base of the socket through a cooltube with a can filter on the other end but I'm not sure what the temps will do if I mount the can filter above the bulb without the tube. I assume the 600w will still produce very well even with 10% or so light loss through the glass...

400w CMH over 600w HPS for veg for sure. Like you said, it helps with the stretch. It has more blue light than the HPS.

Anyway, nice clean looking setup.. ready to rock.

Thanks StealthDragon, good to see you still hanging out around here!!

Thanks everyone for stopping by, I will be posting this grow in real time like the others. We will see how things go....

I decided to keep the cooltube this run for the same reason I am going DWC, to keep other aspects of the grow very simple so I can concentrate on the vertical aspect.

The main things I need to figure out is when to flip and pruning to max out the yield. Maybe later I will experiment with TAG and bare bulbs after I feel I have the vert concept worked out.
