I prefer LED. I'd use CFLs before I used HPS/MH lights. I do not like anything that requires a ballast.

It's the only way forward I see. The spectrums are going to be tweaked from here on out so for most of us that's a good thing with better performance, lower energy costs and bigger harvests. What's not to like?

No I am a soiler grower and only monitor the ph of everything that goes into the soil. I follow the simple formula on the GH Nutrients bottles.

VERY NICE!!! I am so pleased with the fluence spyder x plus. 660 watts. photon efficiency of 2 .1... photon output of 1410 umol/s... saying better colors, flavors, reduced stretching, thicker stalks, increased productivity, reduced temps and reduced operating costs. WOW!! GREAT PICS!!

You bought those LEDS ?!!? I'm checking your threads, can't find 'em. What a perfect setup with those babies, no pictures?, did you get the PLUS, using them from veg to flower?
It'd be 2 grand funny money to get them up here tho :-(

the new 4 by 8 tent. girls just turned 5 weeks into flower. same 5 gal. pots and same soil in all tents. this tent is hps and a two week 12/12 head start on other two. long way to go but looks promising. it won't be easy for fluence to beat this tent.

I'm sure! that is nicest light I've ever seen... I emailed the guys, he wants my canadian postal code for shipping estimate :-(

I'll save my questions for that LED thread, man, are they ever nice !!!
They look good in there too

RED ALERT !!!
get something on top of those stakes, like those useless rapid rooter plugs :-) or those red cups you guys like.
VERY easy to poke yourself in the eye with those things !!!
Unless you're a safety glasses guy but I am always taking those things off for a closer look....
