This is why we can say that there is no “ultimate” setup, but only appropriate lighting.

Grow Room Temperature

When it comes to growing indoors, there are a few tried and tested grow light systems you can’t go wrong with.

Now that we’ve got the basic considerations under our belt. Let’s take an in-depth look at each available light

I also used duct tape to secure the foam to the window because it’s cheap, easy to use, and is very durable when combined with staples.

For the sake of ease of use, I recommend getting a ballast that is digital, dimmable, and supports both MH and HPS bulbs.

Yet at the same time, I was also worried about spending a whole bunch of money on grow equipment since I wasn’t even sure if I could successfully grow.

400W – covers 3′ x 3′ (0.9m x 0.9m) area up to 3.5′ x 3.5′ (1m x 1m)

The following section will teach you what you need to know about setting up and using your MH/HPS grow lights for growing cannabis. I’ll share the hints and tips I’ve learned along the way to help you achieve the best results with your new lights!

Exhaust Efficiency – Every exhaust system has some level of inefficiency which will lower the amount of air being moved by the fan. This step tells you how much extra air-moving power needed to compensate. With an efficient exhaust, air goes in a short, straight line after passing through the fan. An inefficient path is when air has to go a long way after leaving the fan, or if the air has to go around turns instead of being in a straight line. This step will help make sure your fan is moving enough air to properly ventilate your space.
• Efficient path – multiply previous number by 2
• Inefficient path – multiply previous number by 3

I didn’t want to spend a whole bunch of money on grow equipment when I wasn’t even sure what to expect!

Here’s a short equation to help you determine what CFM rating you need for your fan in your space.
