I'm considering re organising my room to give me more area to fill with plants, however, if I do I will be  reducing the light intensity by 1/2 and I'm wondering if its likely to be beneficial.

 

At the moment I have about  12m2 of  space to fill with plants. The light intensity of the grow space ranges between 40K lux and 90K. I'm thinking about expanding the grow space, but this will cost me light intensity.

 

Alternatively I can push my grow area out to 20m2 but the light intensity will be reduced to 20K - 40K lux.

 

Ideally, I would set up something that sits inbetween the two extremes above but It's not possible in my space.

 

Both setups use the same amount of light.

 

So what do you folk's reckon. Bright an small or less bright and big?

 

These options have me scratching my head , I really don't know which is best.

 

EDIT - I've just re-read this and realized that I't makes me look like I have a warehouse full of buds.  My bloom space is 2.2 x 3 x 2m and I train the plants onto the walls (kind of), hence the large area. For the record, I'm not a Biker or Asian crime god and I dont use PGR's :)

12m2 is small? That’s massive in my books, would the drop in light not produce light fluffy buds?

Sorry PP, please read my edit in the first post. What I posted was very misleading regarding the size of my room.

I grow vertically in cool tubes with no reflectors. My girls wrap around the lights.

I’m dreading my power bill with 2, never seen hps run without reflectors sounds interesting can’t wait to see your grow if your posting it.

Anyone ever worried about mr policeman combing through these sites seeing some of these beautiful grows and tracking ip’s?

Hey Cooper,

Here's a link that may assist https://cannaversity...rs/lighting.php

It'll ask ya for a username and password, just hit cancel, it'll let ya in

 

Pat, most of us are personal growers. We have in the past have someone come on blaming us for a bust, but he bought a shitload of seeds using his own credit card and then wonders why he got busted. Idiot.

We would be hearing a hell of a lot more about individuals being busted/visited if this site was used for such purposes. A bit of common sense goes a long way, don't disclose too much.

I reckon a smaller space with more intensity would be better, that's why I think my little grows in my cupboard do pretty well cause the size is just right for the amount of light.

Have you ever noticed the most dangerous thing about cannabis is getting caught by the police with it?

Reflective surfaces make a massive difference too over open spaces.
