Two HPS or combination of HPS & MH ?!
    #609442 - 02/15/12 06:19 AM (4 years, 9 months ago)

Hello,

My plants are two weeks into flowering.
I have two 400 watt projector, one HPS and the other one MH.
I bought 400 watt HPS bulb yesterday, should I replace the MH bulb with HPS or the combination is better ?

Thank You Guys

I say stick with one halide and one sodium...you'll get a broader spectrum of light. :thumbup:

I would agree with 81 if he was running 4-5 lights.  From what I've read and experimented with myself you don't get benefits from adding MH until you get up to that many lights.  If you only have 2 keep them both HPS.

I myself run MH only from veg through flower, so if you want to know what I really suggest, its d)none of the above, get 2 MH bulbs. :shrug:

When I tested this, I found MH to yield less, but tends to have a higher resin production.
HPS yields much better over all.
If I were to mix the two again it would be two HPS's and One vertical MH ratio.

QFT.  I don't cash-crop, so yield doesn't play into my equation.  I love the end product I get from using halides start to finish, but if you're not just growing head-stash, HPS will get you more product.
