Great, Bro!

just try to stress less plants at pre-flowering. Defoliation .. etc.
Yep usually i do it just before i flip lights, and next time on week 3, now it was such a bush that i had to do it to get light for smaller branches. Now im gonna wait that the stretching and preflowering ends, and probably on week 4 put 600w hps on top. New clones are also on the way, i got lot of stuff what im gonna do different on next vertical round.

Just because i have done horizontal for years and its kind of routine how i do my things so its not easy to leave old habits :p
But no worries im so excited about vertical that in going to continue doing that couple of rounds and learn more.

Here is pic from other tent which is basic horizontal with new seeds and strains:

Yes, here you can clearly see the difference between horizontal and vertical cultivation methods.

In the photo we see that only the tops are normally illuminated, the rest of the buds are essentially in the shade. Therefore, the bulk of the crop is these upper buds. The rest of the buds. which is lower, you lay aside as second grade.

With vertical cultivation, if you distribute the light correctly, then your buds will be the same from top to bottom. The same size and quality. You will not have either first or second grade. The quality will be the same.

Yes i see and im looking for that. And i also like the fact that im using 100% of the light when its 360° without reflector. (At least almost since im using cooltubes which kills littlebit of the light)

Cool tubes need to be washed often from the inside
Yep i do that. Still not the same as bare bulb, but temps are what they are..

Awesome! What is the height of the plants in pegasus?
The working height of the installation from top to bottom is a little less than 2 meters. Two plants are almost grown to the top. I'll bend them to the side later. It's time to switch 12/12. But the heat is abnormal this summer, I'm afraid to spoil the bloom with the heat, so I don't switch yet.

There are 7 large plants in the installation. The volume of the grow basket is 230 liters.
