Anyone with some hard and fast knowledge on the matter want to weigh in?

Can a 270W bulb be put into a 250W ballast with any problems?

Can a 250W bulb be put into a 270W ballast with any problems? (I know this one is kinda farfetched but it's for theoretically purposes only)

I'm sure it works fine; I know things can be stretched in product descriptions and everything, but I don't think that is one of them. Anyways, I've never even heard of a 270 watt HPS ballast, but I guess I've never really looked for one. :lol:

well have you ever put a 100 watt bulb in a socket rated to 40 watts? there you might get a boom or fire.
the warnings say use the listed wattage or lower.

Alright. This thread is just about wrapped up. I ordered a 250W Lumatek ballast, a light pipe cool tube reflector (which I'll have to wire myself, wish me luck), a 250W Hortilux enhanced spectrum HPS light, and a 6" vortex fan which will be showing up next week. Went ahead and ordered through a local hydro store. Figured I'd support my local stoners instead of giving those CA bastards my money with their dank-medical-kind-nugs.....bastiches. :shakefist:  :smile:

I also went ahead with Sirius' advice and got the Double Strawberry Diesel off Seedbay. Will mail out the letter on Monday. Anyone know how much postage needs to be on it going from the US to England? Do I actually have to go in and get them to put postage on it? Or should I just stick 4 or 5 stamps and hope?

I have in my possession:
  • 2 bags of Fox Farm Ocean Forest
  • 1 small bag of blood meal
  • 25' of 6" aluminum  ducting (found it at the Despot. Was ecstatic)
  • three 3 gallon pots
  • 15'x10' of Panda Film
  • BC 3 part nutes (Boost/Grow/Bloom)
  • 1 bottle of SuperThrive (again courtesy of the Despot)
  • 1 roll of Duck Tape (for hanging the Panda film. Anyone had any problems with Duck Tape not being enough?)
  • And about 3 grams of DMT to make the wait shorter >.>

I'm sure you could find rates on their website. :wink:

If you send overnight, you'll get another set of freebies to help cover the cost. Sending some kind of express though, something with a confirmation number, is really the way to go. It would really suck to have that stuff go missing, especially since if it doesn't get there in two weeks, you don't get those seeds. :shrug:

I'm really looking forward to seeing you get everything put together. :yesnod:

Sorry to bump an old thread. But I'm also thinking about using an aerogarden. I was wondering what setting would be best. The only reason I am using the aerogarden is because i don't really have much space at all. So I figured it may be the best way to go.

Well I've seen an aerogarden in person....not really what you wanna use. If you want to do Deep Water Culture (which is what the aerogarden basically is) look up DWC buckets. Use a bubbler and 5 gallon bucket. Get a large net pot. Fill with hydroton. Put 5-10 seedlings in rockwool cubes into the hydroton and water until the roots reach the water. Weed the males. Flower. Presto...Pot.
