I'm looking at items to purchase for my first grow. Initially I want to start with two photoperiod plants and if i'm succesfull I want to expand to six. For two plants i have measured and they would fit fine. Model: Green-Qube V: GQ100 Grow tent, it is 1meter x 1meter x 2 meter. My issue is that I will need to get a bigger tent when I want to scale up. However having a small tent for seedlings and another for flower is a smart idea. Please give me feedback on my thought process and your personal experience. For a bigger tent I found model: Green-Qube: GQ300L – 3m x 3m x 2.2m (62 feet). Would you get the smaller one first?
My second question: How do you deal with working out of a tent? I would like to be able to walk inside of my tent, close the door behind me and get to work but thats not possible with a tiny tent. If I choose a smaller option and any time I want to maintain my plants wouldn't the climate inside get stressed when I use 60minutes when lollipopping the plants, filling water etc when the tent walls are down and i'm working on my babies? Third question: I read somewhere that the wattage for all the lights are typically lower than whats written on them. I found Mars Hydro TSL 2000 300w and I'm likely going to buy it. I did some mathcalculations regarding the electricity my plants would need if I were going to have six or five plants. The pot I would be using is 3gallon: I read that 3gallon is good for Sativa strains as they grow bigger then Indica's which would need 5gallon pots. I found out that the wattage I would need for six plants were 624w and 416w for five. If I have two Mars Hydro TSL 2000 300w, would it be best to have five or six plants inside of the bigger tent? On the first option I have less wattage then whats optimal. I read that each plant should get 65wattage each. On the second option I have far more wattage then needed. I used the formula from: https://www.growweedeasy.com/1-gram-per-watt
