I think that you are going to want about twice the amount of light you have right now to provide adequate light for flowering. You should have a min of 5000 lumens per sq ft. for flowering

Second, I would recommend that you try and get your mylar hung straighter or take it out. Unless mylar is hung flat, its reflectability goes down the toilet. Flat white paint will give you far more reflected light than wrinkled mylar.

I don't see any fans--proper ventilation is as important as your lighting. You really should be exchanging the air in your space 3-4 times a minute.

Instead of the Mylar if you dont want to paint it white you could get some white cardboard, The stuff charts are made from and staple it to the walls.

Cheaper fix if its needed. I used the back of music posters in part of my 1st grow hehe, Worked a treat when i couldn't paint.

Nice set-up and grow. Is it a hydro-drip set-up? I use those 65watters in my grow. Walmart has 55watters for 12 buck, 42 watters for 9 bucks btw. Nice grow indeed

I use hemppy buckets, I put my clones in growdan blocks then into buckets with perlite. I was using a perlite/vermiculite combo but now I just use perlite. I add water/nutes until it drips out of the over flow. Passive hydro.

If its just flat paint it shouldn't take too long to dry. Maybe a couple hours with a fan on it.

this IS one good looking CFL grow!

what don't you like about the mylar? isn't it supposed to be just as good or better than the paint???

i don't think the fumes would hurt anything, especially since you seem to have your exhaust dialed in, and the plants will be getting fresh air drawn in there...

THG told me that white is better unless your mylar is straight and flat. It also has become dirty. Im gonna paint anyway maybe I'll come up with a way to get it tighter to the wall and put it back up, maybe in my veg room.

Ben have you been in "The Grow Store" ? They have this rotating reflector going in there, WTH is that thing all about? And BTW thanks for the compliment.
