whats up everyone? I was just wondering what would be about the max amount of plants that should be put under a 1000w hps in a sog set up? or about how many sq ft would a 1000w cover? thanks everyone,Mike
I dont sell my weed because I would only use the money I made to buy more weed
It's all a matter of personal preference, but I would say you could cover about a 5*5 space, at 4 plants psf (per square foot), and have up to 100 plants. What strain are you planning on growing? and will it be from clones? if you're growing from seed (which you really shouldn't do for a SOG) you won't be able to do more than 1 plant psf, if that. Good luck, and make sure to keep a live grow journal so we can all watch/help.
I run a 100wHPS on a mover6' My first seed crop i ran about 23, even with the mover and growing them until sex mature( in veg I got a lot of variation and not a uniform canapy. and that's 23 females and one turned herm (damn fem seeds). I was pushing the space for I had a mix of aghani, WYd bubblegum, juliet, and shaman. Still got 2o oz that was seeded quite a bit. I cut clones after sex showed and cut clones during first flower. Got 37 clones(of the seed crop)and 3 golden female skush, It's crowded , but wityh 1 1000w HPS on a mover I can get at min 2lbs,+ in 60 days on a continuous cycle, will cut down number of plants next with select afghani , bubblegum moms, next round.
