  8. not a problem thug.my max hight of light is between 5-5.6 foot but i want to make that adjustable.now ive got to make a decision about width and lengh cause its in an apex attick.i dont now if i should leave it like that.but ive got a very strong feeling i want to curtain it of to a may be 4ft by 4ft area lined with foil .wat do you think matey? laters jay.
     
  9. sorry thug forgot to mention ive got as much area as i want.fuck me i could grow fucking forest up there.
     

  10. same as me and my bro.
    we both got big rooms and use mainly 400s.
    attic space:
    gonna need to b able to control temps and light leaks.
    i dont know what your attic is like but thats true for most of them. thats 2 good reasons to have walls.
    the 3rd being reflected light, very important with a 400.
    size:
    anything from 3x3 upto 5x6 depending on plant and style.
    a good size is 4x4. a good hight for your plants is 3' max.
    a 400 suits a sog very well. perpetual harvest from clone under a 400 shuld give you 2oz a week grown well in soil. more from hydro.
    something to work towards?
    light hight:
    very important, must b able to ajust. once you start a pep you will not need to do it a lot but when u do need it you DO need it.
     
  11. white plastic or mylar.
    its worth the money.
     
  12. hi ya.thanks 4 all youre imput its going to save me alot of time(in fuckups).better start on this room its going to yake awhile.cheers laters.
     

  13. i think thats what these kinda places are for :)
    use a bit of common sence and you shudnt make any big mistakes.
    think twice. do once.
