    A 1000 watt HPS has 146,000 lumens and you need 36ft2 x5000L/ft2=180,000 Lumens for flowering so no a 1000 watt HPS is not enough light for that area

    A six by six area would require a minimum of 180,000 lumens at 5000 per square foot during flowering you can do a sog with just however many will fit if thats what your wantin to do just flip em early

    It's all relevant. As many or as few as you want. Pack a table with single tops or couple she beasts in 18gal totes. Much easier to care for and maintain only a few. I would always choose large ladies for MJ. Real life, not so much. Personal preference.

    Its not the number of plants its the size of the room.
    You have enough light for 30 square feet or less.

    All that being said, 40 plants is 2 to 3 times too many. 10 plants would be pushing it.......

    More plants does not mean more bud. And if you are growing from seed, the plants are going to have to reach sexual maturity before they will flower, so you are going to have a 4-8 week veg regardless. If you are into growing lots of small plants, I recommend getting a good mom and using clones.
