    Looks awesome, how are you going to light it? LEDS would be a good option.

    That silvery thing on top is the lighting. It's a 400 watt MH system (dimmable). I think I have the angles and calculations correct, I hope. I looked at LED's but I'd have to have them so close to the plants that I couldn't get in there and the price on those babies are a little high...My 70+ plants should be happy while it's snowing outside...

    Well the move is compete! It only took about two hours...I'm happy with the results. What do you think?? Hopefully they'll be happy. I have the environment nailed at 70-80% humidity. 63F at night & 85F during the day. Light for 12 hours. Did I miss anything?

    That looks great !! The plants at the bottom may need more light. Looks awesome at the top levels.

    It's a 400 watt mh light. It should be 1100 fc at the bottom. I'll move then up if they don't like it but I don't know where...lol

    I had them outside in the greenhouse. It's starting to get colder outside so I thought I'd better being them inside.
