Default Grow tents

Ive decided that they shouldnt be square. My reflector leaves a rectangular foot print so why isnt the tent rectangular.

Ive got a 4 by 4 which i originally put a 600w hps in. After the first round i found that the 600 wasnt anywhere near strong enough. Now i have a 400 and a 600 in there, both with reflectors. Still i find that the foot print doesn't cover the whole floor space.

Im planning to turn both reflectors 90 degrees to spread the foot print out, but i know this still wont cover the entire space and wont supply the watts per square foot i want

I agree Skuzz. My gardens are almost always a 2 to 1 margin width vs length. (2x4 or 3x6 ) simply because reflector equipped lamps fill that footprint better. Why not try a vertical lamp to get better use of space in a tent?

600 + 400 = 1 k in a 4*4 tent = 62.5 watts per square foot

That sounds extremely good, hell anything over 50 is good imo.

Are you sure you are not going to run into a heat issue on this one?

And what kind of reflector are you using? My hoods always did a rectangle foot print....pix?

Verticle Cool tube dead in the middle...have seen it done many times, not with two lights though, and a 600 is on the small side for a 4*4 by itself, but I think tents make up for this because it "traps" the light, so the plant gets more than if it were in the middle of the room

Vert all the way, lamp shade OFF


I use the lamp shade on and lamp shade off observation........lamp shade OFF always throws more light 10 to 1.......when u use a 'reflector" your bending the light at a minimum and LIGHT DONT BEND!

Not to mention the glass in a reflector decreases intensity by itself. If you go vert hang the light bare. Just make sure it dont get wet could be ugly....

Skuzz, I've noticed that you use the cheapo reflectors in your grows. If you were to invest in a adjust-a-wing combo you will get good and even coverage in the 4X4 tent. I'm sure that vertical is a great solution also, but when people say that 600w is not enough in a 4X4 tent, I say bullshit. A decent reflector and a 600w HPS does the job just fine, speaking from experience

I already had it lying around. The electric is cheap enough and the extra return is worth it.


Plus only true gangsta's roll with 2 lights per tent
