Hi All

a little tip when using the Growroom Tools,yes it is difficult to read the results, so use your mouse to highlight whats in the box's its a little fiddly but it works ;-)

Hope this helps

What is sufficient light for a single plant? My next grow will hopefully be alot bigger(15 plants), so what would be the best light to use for this? And how much space is best for that many plants?

Thanks in advance, Nude.

If there is a better place where I can ask questions plese point me there :)

no m8 my room is 6 ft wide 4 1/2 ft deep & 6ft high with one 600w and a 6" fan and i just manage to hold the temp right and that moves 420 m3/hour how many plants are you growing in your space ?

You wouldnt put 4x600's in that space anyway mate :(

Ideally you need to be exchanging air in the room at least 20 times a minute so the calc will tell you what fans you need to do that ;)

So no matter how many lights you put in it will still say the same as its not telling you nothing about temps :smoke:

You yourself have to choose what light you can successfully control the temps of, if you know what I mean :)

You have to bring cool air in or else you will struggle with temps and then regulate the fans speed to achieve the right temps.Sometimes a heater is needed and sometimes an air con unit is needed ;)
