I love HPS
    #329930 - 12/11/09 08:14 PM (6 years, 11 months ago)

Just thought I'd share that with you guys!

I can't believe how bright the fucking light is, no wonder the light can penetrate the canopy and still be intense on lower growth!

I'm in love :yesnod:

Wonder how long it takes for them to make you blind. I get pretty close to mine sometimes.

Nothing can really prepare for how bright an HPS can get.  You figure that out when you fire your lamp for the first time.  The first night I blazed my first 430 watt HPS I thought I had lit a small sun in my room.

Hell ya!  That's exactly why we use the HIDs over other light sources.  Lumen penetration.

Hopefully this will increase my yields.  I have yet to achieve the huge colas, except outdoors.  Now I have the strains and the lighting.  Good things in my future.  I est. I have 45 days left on the Chrystal, and 55-60 for the Haze, but it's anyone's guess at this point!

I know i'm going to want to step up to a 250, and then when I get that i'll be like shit, I NEED MOAR!  Then I'll probably jump right to the 600.

:yesnod:

I held off till I could get a 400 but she doesn't put out like I'd like.

here man, take a head start on your way to the 600w club.  I just found this auction.  I bought a 400watt galaxy ballast on ebay this past summer.  it came with a usable MH and HPS bulb, which i did use the entire last grow.  i got it for just a bit over 100$.  I am interested to see what this one will sell at.

ive got a 150, but i love the HPS so much that i was able to start out way more plants than i had initially intended. i ended up turning as one clone grow into a full out GROW. i cant wait to get my 400 watt light set up!!!

Well I'm more of an outdoor connoisseur, and have been for nearly 10 years.  I get the wattage I desire in the strong summer sun, but thanks for the tip!  I am only doing Indoors now so that I can make it through the winter and spring until summer comes along!  I'll still do it in the summer, but it definitely won't be my main focus.  What i've noticed is indoor has a faster growth rate, due to the full intensity during lights on, where as outdoors, the plant only gets full strength light during the hottest 2-3 hours of the day.  The light gets brighter and brighter then darker and darker, but the HPS is full power all damn day!  The other thing is stem thickness and much lower Calyx to Leaf ratio.  That's why i'm anxious to see how this crystal performs inside, cuz grown outside it was very dense and not very leafy!

Some people don't have jobs or funds man... I've grown this entire crop with about 10 dollars... I'm a ninja like that. :blueninja:

I just simply cannot afford to pay for anything for this grow.  I have everything I need to continue it, but I cannot upgrade lighting or ventilation at this point until I get a job and license back!

The HPS was a gift from my older brother to me, so he's cool as fuck.  :yesnod:

i gotta get some more money before i can set everything up!!!

i need a bulb, ballast, lamp socket, 4" fan, and 4" ducting to flow the air out of the reflector.

once i have the lighting completely set up. im going to pick up an inline fan, carbon filter, and 6" ducting, and my grow will be fully operational :awesome:

pretty badass light man. i just wish it was quiet. no worries though, im setting up a 400 watt system soon, and ill probably use this 150 as another light to bump up the watts and lumens and get some dank and dense ass buds.

I think you mean a higher calyx to leaf ratio, or, a lower leaf to calyx ratio :wink:

i think he was saying that you get a lower caylx to leaf ratio outdoors compared to the same plant under an hps indoors.  i've never seen any studies on this but the logic he used above makes good sense, certainly.
