So buddy wants to purchase this kit


And it come with 3100k de cmh 630w bulb with square wave Ballast, ventilation with charcoal filter, timer, and hangers with and a 4x4 tent.

He is looking for a quicker growing medium but with the quality and denser buds that ols or super soil can give but with faster grow times like hydro, is coco worth a shot? With this light in a 4x4 6-8 plants with 2-4week veg on first couple sets then maybe I can help him establish a mother after we can get plants and room dialed in for 14-20 ounces every 2-3 months?hopefully

What else do you recommend he gets from the beginning?Like a list or combo pack to buy with this kit and I can show him, I’m gonna help his with his setup for the most part to get him going I’ve known him a long time and don’t want to steer him to wrong?

that light will cook your plants in a tent, they run super hot...I know, I have one sitting on the shelf...
So don’t purchase is what your saying even with ventilation it’s just to hot and what do you recommend he is wanting anywhere from 1 to 2 pounds each harvest every 2 to 3 weeks

Honestly man, I use to pull 26 oz,s every two months flowering in a 4x4 and vegging in separate smaller tent.i have always used 6 watt hps in 4x4s.i never had heat problems or humidity cause I'd run a small ac unit just for that tent and I send the ac into the bottom and the heat thru the carbon filter out the top.ofcourse scoffed 4-6 girls each time and always kept small fan running over top canopy and one running across the bottom.ez as pie.

Yea that is some nice weight a local gardening store has wrote up a 4x4 coco with dirty dozen nutes 6in phat filter, 6in active air Exhaust, 20-1/2 gal grow bags for trans and 8-3 Gal smart pots, 4bags of loco coco and a next light mega(646watt on 120v led 5x5 flower n 7x7 veg)

15% off everything right @$2300 sound reasonable and like I get some high quality product this is just gonna be flower light I’m gonna veg under t8 3clone 5veg then 8flower the harvest and 2 cycles
so I would harvest every 4 weeks does this sound do able For 1-3 lbs Each harvest

Sure it def sounds doable,the thing is consistent phenos and perfect growing conditions from start to finish and sure u could work it out.the best mind frame to have going into this is not expecting any qouta,and just really dig in ,put in the consistent work,pest management and keeping the room or tent clean ,everyday!.you will find ur phenos that give u great quality and weight and u will dial there nutes regiment in and your weights will come.happy growing to you bro

In a 4 x 4 if you can cool it Id use a 1000w Hortilux HPS.

The 1000w Hortilux was specifically made for a 4 x 4 area decades ago, and is the industry standard for a single ended grow bulb.

The Hortilux also has the highest umol at 1600umol


I also start seedlings under 1000w Hortilux at a height of 24 inches. I also like to have a slight breeze constantly blowing 24/7, and I usually aim the fan between the top of the plant, and the bulb.

I myself like Promix BX as my grow medium.

Yes a 1000 watt hps would work in there most definitely.but honestly I would rather run a 600 watt hps over my 4x4 ft area.in most cases u can actually run two 600 hps cheaper than you can run a 1000 watt hps.but the 1000 hps u speak of def rocks.with them I'd hang one over 6x6 canopies.belive me ,if u scrog it a bring that baby down as much as possible you will kill it.happy growing to u bro.

I want my youth back but that ain't gonna happen...you're goals are way off, read the faq...you may get 6 zips from the ten but that's every 2 plus months...

That’s the same way I have my 4x4 setup and runs beautifully
