How Many Plants Under A 1000W Light

  1. Can anyone tell me how many plants would a 1000w light do?

  2. Not an expert but I seem to recall that a 1000w is sufficient for a 5 foot by 5 foot area max, so however many you can squeeze in there I guess.  I'm running eight under mine but realistically I need additional lighting for future grows.  Hope this helps!  My plants are in my sig if you care to take a look
     
  3. I run six. Veg them for 3-4 weeks and they fill out the space by the end really well. Less plants you'd want to veg longer to fill out the canopy and more than six would require more LST/Scrog work imo. My space is 4x4' and I run them in 3gal pots. 
     
  4. You want at LEAST 8000lumens per plant but more prefferably 10-12000 each
     
  5. You can do anywhere from 1 to 49.....all depends on veg.
     
  6. I have a 5x5x7 tent with 44 growing 12/12 at the moment under a 1000w hps......5plants in 3gal pots....&....39 in 1gals...
     
  7. The unwritten rule is 100 watts per plant, but I would say place 7-8 plants and arrange them in a manner so that the plant in the center sits lower than the plants at the side.
