a 1,000 watt light is too much light for 6 plants.
I flower 9 plants about 30" high with a 400 watt hps and my bill is an extra $60. monthly.
Yield is 6-7 oz a month.


Thank you...

Poet, the number of plants has nothing to do with light needs. Light needs are figured by how many sq feet you are lighting. Six plants could well need 1000W or more if they are large plants.

You know it ain't cheap .... $1500 a month is average. It runs a little more in summer because of the a/c, little less in winter.

Yep, around here a 400 watter 24/7 ran me roughly 25-35 bucks month. Maximum 13 cents a K/w 'round here. Goes down to like 7 cents during so called 'off-peak' hours.

chatty today... Nothing wrong with water cured pot

bare bulb? Is 400W significantly cooler than 600W ?
I was using 1000W and 600W in rooms with 7ft ceilings and had to use cool tubes and blowers. I'm wundrin' if hanging two 250 or even one 400 vertically would need lamp venting again.

Where I live electricity is pretty cheap. Here's how it breaks down for me. I ran 3 600 watt hps last summer and when I broke down my electric bill this is how it played out. Each 600 watt ballast raised my bill $33.00 each running at 12-12. A 10,000 btu ac set at 76* was an additional $42.00 and the circulating fans added up to $26.00 a month. I checked this against a kill-a-watt meter and my billing system. Hope it helps and realize your mileage will vary

Either way, the outcome outweighs the costs .
