  1. ok so im setting up my perpetual garden. now in my flower room i got 2 600w hps bulbs with air cooled hoods in a 4.9 x 4.9 x 6.11 room.

    now my question is im gonna be getting another grow tent soon.. for a mother plant and for my clones.. now should i use a 400w mh with a air cooled hood in there .. OR 5 200w cfl 6500k ..

    in the veg room id only have 1 mother plant to take cuttings from and clones and a few other plants so probally around 8 plants in total plus cuttings.. do i need a diffrent room for cuttings and veg plants?
  2. also say i went with a 400w mh plus 2 200w cfls

    could i use the 400w mh for mother plants and veg plants. and than just use the 2 200w cfls for clones. the veg room will be 3.7 x.3.7 . 6.7 ..

    i would most likley setup it up like this

    mother plants
    - 400w mh over top of veg plants and mother plants
    veg plants

    clones 2 200w cfls 6500k over top of clones

    i would probally only have around 2 mother plants and 6 veg plants and however many clones when i set it up i want to be able to harvest evrey month so do i need a certain amount of veg plants in veg do suceed/
