hi milann, u are looking for 50watt per square foot of light.

u have bought 20 seeds so i will say u need a 600watt lght but this will only cover 2m sq.

also paint your growroom matt white with a few coats, maximise your light.

and get a fan blowing inbetween your plants tops and the light, u will get light slighly closer and stop your buds burning,try and not blow on the buds tho might get leave burn.

fingers crossed for u and go and grow some kick ass bud mate.

You might save money by outfitting your non-flowering rooms with fluorescent or CF bulbs.

Keep your HPS for flowering (12/12). Rememeber that higher intensity HPS lamps are more efficient for their power consumption.
For instance, a 400W HPS bulb is rated at 55,000 lumens. A 600w HPS is rated at 93,000lm, which is roughly 15% more efficient. The same applies to small HPS lights like 150w and 250w - a single 400w HPS gives more lumens than these two combined.

1m/sq is almost 11 square feet. So, optimum lighting is a bit less than 550w per square metre. Many growers use a simple estimate like 400w HPS per m/sq or 600w per 2m/sq.

600w per m/sq is as much lighting as cannabis needs (a little more, in fact).

hello again i am doing good i've got a video wich shows a lot, i've got 3 small rooms made by me in the big rooms where i plann to grow african scunk, northen higliths, and avgana. can i make a test by taking a plant of each kind and make them flower sooner than outhers in a 4rth closet
will that change them by taste or smell how much income of buds will i loose and for how long shall i wait before changing to 12/12. shall i go with 24/0 for a week and 20/4
for the rest of the time before i diside to flower? what about cloning is it realy worth it because i have 3 mounts before my parents go back at the house i'm usnig and there can't be any misstakes to see what i have made there because i would get shot :))) money is no problem for electrisity or bulbs i'm just another sick rich in cash poor in weed living in sh*t city with crapy weed despered in waiting for the moment to take the 1st smoke :)))
