HPS or Metal Halide for flowering??

Recommended Posts

LED's are probably your best option. They use less electricity and have a better color spectrum. If you aren't getting the results you're looking for with your existing LED's then get more wattage. There is thread on here about LED lights and what you should look for.

If you decide to go with the old technology then I would advise HPS.

I agree with Wild Bill. I have saved alot of money, environmental adjustments (heat problems) and better herb using LEDs. I have a 2000 Watt Philizon Led fixture and a few other small leds for my whole cycle and have way better results. Look into 2000-3000 watt LEDs with COB lights built in. Best way in my opinion.

      I have a 4x4 grow tent i am using for flowering.  I am using led lights right now but want to switch to a HPS light.  small room so heat may be a problem.  I am thinking about using a 250 watt to help with heat.  OR, should i use a 400 watt?   Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thank You!

      Hello.  Im using a foliage spray.  I have been told to use it right before the light goes off and i have been told to use it while the light is on?  Which would have the best results?  Im using nitrozime (marine algae) as a foliage spray.  Thanks.
