    How much light do i need for an 8x4ft s.o.g!

    I have an 8x4 ft flood and drain table. Should I use 3-600w hps or two? How much light is sufficient to "produce". Thanks.

    Two will work if on light movers. Best moving in opposite directions.
    Of course 3 is better.

    light movers? sounds good, i suppose 3 will be max, due to heat right, but you can pull it off with 2? thanks

    2-600 watters will give you 37.5 watts per square foot,which is a little on the low side but doable under the right conditions:

    1. Scrog grow

    2. Go with a narrow air cooled hood that projects a rectangle pattern instead of square.

    3. Use 6 foot light movers with the lights starting out at opposite ends of the grow. By using light movers and air cooling you can put the lights as close as 6 inches to the top of the grow.

    I am using a SOG method in a 8x 4 area. I have 2 600w hps and 1 400w hps in the middle all being cooled by a 6 inch fan. My temps stay at 82 degrees and I am using Co2. with 1600 watts total I can produce 1600 grams per grow (or 800 grams per month).

    Awesome set-up, ideally with 3-600w hps I want to try for like 7-8 lbs. Kinda ambitious, but my bud is experienced as hell and pulls up to 9lbs with his. Are you using pots, If so how many? What strain? So on... Im interested, because your still pulling weight with yours. 1600 grams is great!
