I highly recommend looking into how you can incorporate this setup into your rooms or cabinets or whatever. It really is so much more efficient for soil or hydro either way. Even if you don't have lots of room like myself (I grow in a 6 foot long by 2.5 foot wide cabinet) you can do a 180 degree or half moon vertical set up instead of growing 360 degrees around the light. It works so well with a cooltube, you get so muhc under and side canopy penetration, and can fit about 3 times more plants under the same bulb. Try it out!
