    Looking pretty good Johnny! Green Mojo for your grow!

    With the size of your room, you may want to think about adding another light to it. You're lacking a bit in lumens for your overall process.

    3500 lumens/sf for veg
    5000 lumens/sf for flower.

    A single 1000w will give off between 95,000-110,000 actual lumens (depends on MH/HPS and the type of bulb)

    For that size space you want to run somewhere in the 300,000 lumen range to stay adequate for veg and flower. You're currently producing about 1500 lumens/sf roughly.

    Thanks!! As soon as this first round is done I will be getting another 1000 watt hps it should be just about right for growing 8 nice size plants... This is my first grow in about 7 years.I had to stop and get rid of all my stuff but now Im back..I asked a couple of friends for some help and the next thing i know Ive got 2 plants and a 1000 watt hps. So I veg for a couple of weeks to get my room sort of set up with what little I to work with.. Cut 30 clones and put the 2 plants into flower.....I love my friends...Upgrades are in the works...GROW GREEN!!

    Glad to hear that it was easy to get back into the swing of things. Like riding a bike- certain skills stay with us.

    Plants look great- good luck with the grow

    I used to think that. I've now accepted my lazy ways:cool:

    BUDS! welcome back to the game. Looks like you'll have quite a bit of smoking to do in a few weeks! Mojo for your final laps.
