I think with all HID lights you need a ballast for ignition and what not.

You need a ballast.  Unless your lamp says it is self-ballasted you will always need a ballast for HPS, MH, or fluorescent.

I am not a cannabis grower.  I find the cannabis growers to be the most open to experimenting and sharing out of all of the different botany groups I enjoy.  I frequently use the suggestions that I find to apply to own organic gardening and food production.
