About Good Lighting?
    #287835 - 09/28/09 04:11 PM (7 years, 2 months ago)

I'm about to order a light that has a ballast that can run Metal Halide and HPS. The manufacturer says MH for VEG growth and HPS for flowering the bud.

I've been using a few 40w florescence for VEG growth with great results...literally inches a day!

So my question is...IS MH better than florescence for vegatative growth?

And for a 1 or 2 plant grow, how powerful of a light do i need? 150, 250, 400watt?

More light equals more yield.
For a 1-2 plant grow in a ScROG style method 400watts would be very good.
Is MH better than fluorescent? Yes. Better spectrum, more lumens, much better.

Thanks for the info!

Another Question, I'm growing from seed...

Can I bud my plant at any height?

A foot tall, 2 feet tall..whats the difference?

Since you have so few plants you should veg them longer...maybe 3-4 weeks in a ScROG setup to maximize bud sites.

I highly recommend doing some more research before you get going again as it seems like there's quite a bit you don't fully understand.

I suggest swinging by the Grow Room Design forum here and telling us all about your space requirements and desires as far as yield and what not. We have some very knowledgeable engineers who can help you all the way from start to finish.

To answer your question about when you can flower them- you can switch to 12/12 any time after you see the pre-flowers.  Look them up.

O'really I flower mine after the seedling stage, and with clones the day I see good root I flower, to be honest I've only seen preflower twice in the last three years.

It's something that is possible to do, sure, it's just not common practice.  Doing something like that is bested suited for a SOG style grow or if you're looking to keep your plants as small as possible.

Yeah I know with in two weeks the sex anyway. Kill the males and run with the females.

If you're working with a mother plant in the veg, there's no worries at all.

I'm about to start up a veg room to start a non stop harvest.
