Lighting and spacing help

  1. I'm planning my winter grow now and I'm upping the anty just a tad and Was thinking about Running 3600w ebb and grow style.

    The question I'm debating mainly among some others is is my space too small to run 6 600watters? The tent is 10x5 and I'm thinking of Running 1 12 3 gallon ebb n grow bucket system per 5x5 space. So I'll be running 24 plants under these 3600w. The original plan was to Run just 3 1kw Hps in this space but Hps don't really cover 5x5 spaces very well to my liking and I could get better light spread with good intensity with 6 600w for the avg 72w per sq ft..

    600s are a pretty well fit for 3x3 so I'm thinking with my space only being 5 feet long would greatly illuminate my space all across the board.

    What do you think?
  2. 1 x 600w Hps per square yard or meter is the rule I go by...and seems to work after doing for so long, for my sat/indi cross thats 9 plants to the sq. yard/ 1x 600w, and get very little heat issues
