    My take boils down to this; productivity of vert vs flat is slightly lower on a per square foot basis, but with the ability to get up to 3x the working trellis square footage you more than make up for it. Usually by double.

    How high is your ceiling?

    I'm doing 2- 20x15x7' rooms with 2-12 site Under Current DWC with air stones. I'm using floatstone for my medium. I have 2,000 watts per room was thinking of adding some 300 watt cfl's for added wattage.

    What are your thoughts on the setup and realistic weight outcome?

    @PKHydro i think it was 10 x 10 x 8ft high but PK can confirm.
    1000w hps = 2pound anything over is a bonus

    2000 watts for each of two rooms of 300 sq ft apiece? Uh, that's not enough watts for all that space. Am I reading this wrong?

    "Typically" a quadrant of 4 (4x4) has a light over...flatlander style anyway...vertical similar imo only light is vertical...for instance in my 4x8 tent, it will have 2 lights hung....

    Even with some of the latest LED available, I can still only realistically spread 1000W over maybe 40 sq ft of actual bloom surface, and it's much better at 30ish.

    So with the most efficient light available you'd still want 8-10kW of lighting in each space. Double that for HID of any kind, DE HPS included.

    Are the rooms too big? Should I make them smaller?

    You need a lot of light for a space that big.

    20x15=300 sq ft/8 for my LED bars = almost 38 units x 265W each = 9900W. You'd spend a lot more watts on anything less efficient, both in terms of performance and cooling.

    I'll adjust my build to be more effective..
    Unfortunately I'm limited on funds.
