    What's causing this??

    Light movers

    I was just wondering wether its worth buying a light mover or not? At the moment i have 2x400w hps. If i were to buy a light mover and cut down to just one light would it be as productive as having two stationary lights?? Obviously i would loose 400w so there is farm less lumens per sqft but...
