Each has their own path and ultimately it comes down to what works best for you, but I have read that most people use 69 plants for 1000W while others like many smaller ones, hence the research method and the scrog. For example, SeeMoreBuds had around 50,100 plants per 1000 W.
A 1000 watt light bulb produces on average more than 500 matching watts. The proven baseline can usually be used. 5 to 1 gram per watt of light.
Most LED wax candles usually can cover around 16 plants.
|2 × 1 square meter||100w||12 plants|
|2 × 2 square meters||200w||13 plants|
|2 × 3 square meters||300w||16 plants|
|3 × 3 square meters||450w||19 plants *|
|250W||10 (25 cm)||14 (35 cm)|
|400W||12 (30cm)||19 (48 cm)|
|600W||14 (35 cm)||25 (64 cm)|
|1000W||16 ″ (41cm)||31 (79cm)|
Experienced growers can produce around one gram of marijuana per watt of light (1 gram = 0.035 ounces). So a 400 watt HPS grow light could potentially mean 400 grams of dried, usable cannabis. Likewise, a grow room with 1200 watts of light can produce 1.2 kilograms of cannabis.
1 watt of electricity generates 3,412 British Thermal Units (BTUs) of heat per hour, regardless of the type of incandescent lamp, HPS, CDL, LED, fluorescent lamp, induction, etc. Therefore, a 1000W HPS grow light (1060W with ballast loss) generates 3617 BTUs per hour of heat.
Sixteen plants grown under a 600-watt HPS lamp can produce around 37.5 grams or 1.3 ounces of marijuana per plant. In perfect outdoor conditions, you can expect a yield of 500 grams per plant.
As long as you can control the heat, the bigger the better. The bigger the light, the better the penetration, so you get a better low yield.
Excellent performance is 1 gram per watt 400/28 = 14.28 oz. A low yield would be 46 grams, a decent yield would be 68 grams, and a large yield would be 812.
Autoflowering cannabis plants thrive in HPS grow light! You will receive seeds for 4 plants for this configuration.
The rule of thumb is 2550 watts of light per square foot, you have 100 square feet so you need 2500 500 watts of light. Check out the forums here, they seem like the way to go especially if heat is an issue.
Each has their own path and it ultimately comes down to what works best for you, but I’ve read that most people use 69 plants per 1000W while others like to have more smaller plants, hence the suction method and Scrog. For example, SeeMoreBuds had around 50,100 plants per 1000 W.
HPS lamps and T5 lamps are used by most manufacturers (68% and 67%, respectively) in at least one growth phase and LEDs by over a quarter of manufacturers.
Recommended assuming 4.0 m² / plant
While too much light can hinder plant growth, it’s also a fairly easy problem to solve. There are a few common ways to ensure a perfectly straight greenhouse. Plant burns are common when plants grow too close to the main source of light and heat.
