  1. hey guys going to be starting first grow in a few weeks time with 600hps.. my original plan was for 6 plants in a 4x4 tent but now wondering if i would get better results if i put less plants under the 600 ? obv so there is more lumens distributed over say 3 or 4 plants.. any thought and input would be gladly appreciated

  2. you should comfortably have six in there , i would have thought.

    they would have very roughly 2.6 square foot each which should be good IMO
  3. I am using a 1000 watt in a 3.5x3.5 tent myself. I can tell you that it is way overkill with a 1k and that a 600 for a 4x4 would be very well matched. At least IMO.

    Anything bigger than a 600 and your gonna run into the heating problems I did. Its been a big pain like you wouldnt believe either. LOL.

    Good luck, good growing.
