Yup. There are lots of people who veg and flower with only HPS bulbs.

You can always veg using CFL if you have a few portable lamps and 15$ for a few high lumen CFL

or use the HPS AND some CFL if it makes you feel better, but the hps will work I'm sure. The light should have full spectrum of color, just not as much of what you need as a MH would.


--------------------
Be sure to read up on "autoflower"/ruderalis seeds before choosing them. Unless you NEED autos, you might do much better with anything else. No more hoarding ultra genetics! We need more of the best not less!

CFL bulb prices have over skyrocketed in the last year or so, before I was able to get a 4 pack of 26w bulbs for $9, now they want $13 for just two of the exact same bulb. I think it has something to do with banning incandescents.

Well a 4 dollar increase for half the amount?  That's a big increase.

$2.25>6.50 each is a huge jump, almost 3 times the price. The smaller bulbs under 20w are still decent prices, but the larger one's just got real expensive one day.
