what can you do with your vert?
some old pics to start this thing off right
heres my half assed late attempt at vert
not bad at all,what strains you got going?
These are of an old grow but this is what my vert looked like with two 600s in cooltubes, centered in a 5'x5'x7'H room. I want to go back to vert but for some reason haven't and I'm not sure why, hmmm....
I have two tents connected together right now with a lght rail inside and have been thinking about selling my RDWC to build two verticals inside the tents. I miss vertical grows.
i feel ya on that dez,i miss vert too.
id like to setup one 600 vert 4x4,6 level octagon.
WOOT!!! Vert lover in the house. Nice thread G. Here's some shit I've done with my vert:
right on jig,vert info pro in our mist...
that last pic,is what i want to try for,it is just so full
Yeah, my room was so big that it never looked like Jig's. Running a perpetual didnt help that either though, I don't think. If I do swap things out though, I'll run a single 600 in each vertical and harvest one every month.
I'm with you G... I want to grow a full closet like that too. Right now shit's looking like a barren wasteland with a couple oases (had to look that shit up) of nice buds. I'll admit the closet still pumps out some nice buds even when the plants have been a bit abused. It fucking kills me though pulling less than 10 zips, when I can be pulling 20+. Such a waste. That third pic I pulled 18oz from that grow. Last run was around 8. grrrrrrrrrr
My big idea right now is to switch that 1000 for 2 - 600's (there's a splitter they make to split the 1k ballast to 2 600 bulbs). One 600 for each level. I am playing with the idea of sealing the room too, rock some co2. Wouldn't need a very big tank with only like 60 cubic feet, lol.
I've thought about getting one of those splitters too. I just have a hard time with the fact that they say you have to run specific bulbs with them. Bulbs thst are a bit on the pricey side considering you have to buy a pair of them. I currently have two 600s and theres a replacement 1000w ballast on it's way here so I could go either way I suppose. I have still been trying to get wifey to let me run all three but she's staying pretty firm on her no. She doesn't want to have to pay the elec bill for the two to three months it takes to get the return on investment. Money is tight right now so she's probably right but I'll try again down the road.
SUBBBBEDDD FOR THIS!!!!!!!
Can wait to get some ideas this forum is exactly what we needed!!!
Jigfresh you got it going on that set up is dope.
and Dezracer dont you think thats not really safe, with the plugs right next to the plant. hopefully you dont splash it when your watering. just my 2 cents
Haha, you're not the first person to say something about that. I was pulling them out to water at that point and I had just thrown that up there temporarily. It got mounted on the wall when I had time. Sad thing is, that entire room is gone now and the only hint that it was ever here is all of the markings I made on the floor when mocking it up. I built a 5x10 room in my garage for all of that and there's three tents (2x4 and two 40"x40" connected) there now occupying most of that space.

I love vertical lighting, I dont think I will ever go back unless I use a few overhead but my main focus will be on the vert lighting. Im actually planning to run some vertical 600's on the outside and use the 1000's on the inside. I like to put 4 plants to a 1000. Like in the layout below. You can see the light in the middle and the ones on the outside I would run 600's so basically for those 4 plants I would use 1 x 1000 HPS and 4 x 600 HPS. This is how you yield 2 lbs per plant ohh and of course other factors like the ideal grow enviroment, a great feeding program, the right setup and training etc.
^^^real good info,very nice layout.
im sure he will stop by,with more input.
Subbed for all the great pron.
i need to figure out a blueprint for a vert in my 3 x 4 x 7 tent. I want to try vertical but it seems in a tent my options are limited. i wanted to use just 1 600 but maybe the 400 and the 600 will do in there if they fit.
thats what this thread is for,vert info in one place.
a 600 & 400 in that spot,with cool tube,would be nice,would it be soil? or hydro?
Heya! Im subbed as well! I was about to say I dont have any vert pr0n to show, then I remembered I did run vert at one point lol
Durban poison trees
i can only do soil and i have abour 6 weeks to set up. ill take pics of the inside of the tent with it empty to give heads a better chance a helping me.
haha,dam i forgot about that grow to,thats crazy.
i know it was one run,but how do you feel about it?,if you remember.
You could run a pretty nice vertical grow in a 3x4 and if you can control temps well enough, might be able to bare bulb it with just a single 600. Running both bulbs in cooltubes stacked is how I'd go though. If I knew anything about using the art/drawing programs on a pc I'd show you what I'd do in there. I want to try to figure that stuff out thouh so maybe I'll give it a go using my space as an example and see how it turns out.
If running 600s, the ideal space IMO is 4x4x7' or 8'H so I think a 3X4 would be pretty dope. Better than my 40"x80"x7' anyway
