I am just beginning with 3 x 1,000w MH lights. They are duals. I also have a 600w HPS ballast lamp. I started May 1st. in a small room off my mobile home. For now, I just have 2 x 1,000w MHs running about 12-13 hrs per day. If it is sunny outside, I shut off one lamp and take about half my plants out. I have about 25 tomato plants and a few peppers growing in pots with soil. I want to continue all winter. When should I plant seeds for next batch? Maybe after I harvest first crop? I have to figure out the proper time-line for cycling about 25-30 pots year round, so that my pots are empty and ready to accept new seedlings to start a new cycle.
In order to keep my crop going year round I always plant a new batch of whatever i’m growing about 4 weeks before I harvest my fruited crop. It gives my new plants just the right amount of time to veg before I transplant to my main grow room for flower. I usually give them another week or two to adjust before I start to flower. I hope this helps!
So much easier with a grow tent then without! Highly recommend investing in one if you plan to grow indoors.
