anyone wanna clear up a lighting question
    #611741 - 03/06/12 03:13 PM (4 years, 8 months ago)

so ive read that you need a HPS for flowering and a MH for veg

why couldnt i just use one light for both but change the cycles... light spectrum

theres a couple threads of people doing that but i want whats best.

i also saw theres conversion bulbs and you just buy one ballast

help:blazed:

You can use one light for both, people do that all the time.

And instead of getting a weird ass conversion bulb, just get a switchable ballast.

If your going to go with only one, go with HPS.

Because it's better for Veg.  And if you don't mind switching it out then it's best to go with one of each.  Also once you get to 4000-5000 watts of light you should mix one MH per 4-5 lights in the mix. 

Yes go with HPS.  That's all I use.

When shopping for your ballast go with digital/electronic they run both MH/HPS bulbs no conversion bulb necessary.

If I had to choose just one it'd be HPS.
But I truly prefer vegging under MH.
