This has probably been beat to death, but hopefully, weeks away from costructing a grow chamber in my basement with pvc pipes as the frame.
How big can I make it, if I use a 1000 W MH lamp? I was thinking about augmenting the light by using mylar as a first layer.
I have visited people with this kind of chamber and I have seen 7 x 7 with no problem and one person , I think, has 8 x 10, but has a track that moves the light back and forth.
I have read literature by people who supply lights that say only 4 x 4. I guess they would sell a lot more lamps if people believed they only cover half the area they should, lol.
I am guessing the height to be no more than 6'( I am only 5'8) and plants will eventually be on benches.
