  1. I have a 400 watt MH/HPS light, how many plants am i SUPPOSE to grow with this amount of wattage. I ask this because my space i have is PERFECT for ten plants and i kind of wanted to grow exactly that many but my issue is will the 400 watt light be suffucient enough for 10 plants? AND if not how many MAX can i get away with.
  2. How big in square footage is your grow space?
  3. its going to be roughly 6ftX6ftX6ft ish
  4. 36 square feet is way too small for a 400. If you try to grow plants spread out across that space with just a 400, you will have spindly growth and tiny buds. You should have 5000 lumens per sq. ft. For a 400, that works to about 11 sq. ft. Confine your grow area to 11 sq. ft. and you will have better results OR buy more lights! GL!
  5. so how many plants can i grow with a 400 watt light assuming i fix my grow spaces size?
  6. Say 4 medium sized.
