Will This Set Up Actually Work? And I Have 2 Dirt Genius 2 Foot Starter Kits

  1. Should work, some pruning, fiming, topping, and lst should be able to keep a plant trained for that space.
    Would not worry about reflective surfaces to bounce light back. If you look at a hps lumen or metal halide lumen chart and you will see that even with HID lighting, that the light has to travel all the way to the reflective, then all the way back to the plant....... lumens disperse way before that and are rendered useless. Say light is middle of room, 24 inches to each side and front/back, you would need a 1000w light to have the lumens be effective and thats just at the reflective surface, it still needs to travel back to the plant losing more lumens and usability.

    Also if that is the light you want to use to grow, you will need more and need to boost plants up to light, or bring light down to plants.
  2. does anyone have a hps mh lumem chart to share?
  3. Google does, when I copy a pic it seems to mess up or I would have just posted as reference.

    Search mh or hps lumen chart, they'll pop up.
