Can I use MH in HPS ballasts and vise versa?
    #318107 - 11/18/09 10:14 PM (7 years, 21 days ago)

Hi, Iv'e been searching around and can't find anything on it, I don't know anything about theese lights either, also if it makes any difference it's not for pot.

I have another question, could I use a low wattage bulb in a high wattage ballast, like a 100w hps in a 1000w ballast?

Not unless it is a digital ballast or the MH bulb is a converted bulb meant to work with a HPS ballast.

Since you mentioned that you are new to the lighting concept, check out different products and search the boards for the success of said bulbs/ballast combination's

So, a digital ballast can run both MH and HPS?
nvm found some that could.

And  can I put a lower wattage light in a higher wattage ballast. I can't seem to find any info on that, I know you can't put a higher wattage in a lower ballast..

I dont think you can do that unless you have the correct ballast to do that with? im not shure if they even make such a thing.
ive never tried.
