listen to whodare. You will get better yields if you take them further away and add to your canopy diameter. I had about 18 inches distance with a 600 so I would assume about 2 ft or even a little more would be ideal for 1000
is it better to veg vert or horizontal if flowering vertically?
I'd assume horizontal would be better for vertical stretching,but then would require more work training them for the vertical screens (if using screens) or if it better to just go vert from start to finish? Any comments on this?
Thanks to both of you..
My new space will be approx 5 x 10, and I plan to use 2 1000's down the middle, which should leave me with 24"s of space between plants and bulbs on each side.
This will be my first through and through vert grow. This current grow I actually used 1 of my 1000's vertically with my tallest plants, I had the 1000 about mid height of the plant...they seemed to like it.
I'm curious though Whodare, you sat you put the bottom of your bulb at the top of the plants...why? To encourage the indy plants to stretch correct?
Red, why do you say it's cheaper to veg hori?
Just curious,be patient folks...I just want to get all my knowledge first, b4 I delve fully into vert growing...
Since I'm gonna be starting in a new location with only a few plants at first, I may end up flowering half the room hori ..not sure.
I'm sure I'm going vert, lol my biggest concern is how (DWC, coco, or pipes)...
Will figure it out...
I may sketch up a rough draft and post, and see what you guys/girls think..
yep... having the bulbs above the indicas cause them to stretch a little more, it will also prevent your indies from growing sideways...
bulbs even with sativas. will cause them to shorten nodes and slow stretch a little...
