What is the size of your grow tent?
Are all of your hydro plant holes equally covered by light or are some of them a little better or worse than others?
System is a DWC/NFT hybrid system. Water flows in one side and out the other. However the pipes are always about half way full.
Tent is 7x7
With the 4 flares i can cover all holes pretty decently, however you really wouldn't get the most light growth out of the plants until they reached mid growth because the lights have to be pretty high up to get the coverage required. So if I wanted to full cover everything from seedling to mature and have the lights 1 foot above the plants from start to finish you really would probably need 6 lights. But i could def manage with 4 without a problem.
This system is by far not the best design. There are tons of things i will do differently my next go round.
