i know theres a lot of great growers on here. would like to get yalls opinion on a basement buildout. I have the oddly shaped room you see in the attached pics and im trying to maximize footprint canopy and yield in this next room. i already have a bunch of phantom 1kw DE’s but im second guessing running these versus going 315w cmh. i could run 12x 1kw DE’s on 5x5 footprints or 33x 315w CMH on 3x3 footprints.
How do the china CMH setups compare to name brand? ive noticed with 1kw DE setups a china lamp and bulb is not noticeable yield and quality of flower wise compared to a gavita with an ushio bulb. is this true of 315w cmh setups as well? would probably look to get all these lamps on alibaba with 0-10v controllable and bulbs.
