I use florous with great results. a mix of cool white and soft white. ;)
MH is good, but florous for veg. no heat problems like a big HID. Florouis work fine for Veg. IMO.

with a 400W. you could easily get a 1/4 lb. every 2 months. ;)

six foot would be good...ofcoarse eight would be better though. I built my box two feet deep four foot wide and against everyones advice..four foot tall. I have done lots of low stress training to keep them short...with eight feet you would be able to grow some monsters for sure.

with 2 boxes; 1 fer veg and 1 fer flower and sticking to indicas you should be able to get 6 crops a year easy. you will have an eight week window for each go. by prep work on the veg and clone room, you can fill the flower room/box and remove the mature plants every 8 weeks max. that 400 will do 5 - 8 plants. HM or HPS? you can get 430 bulbs

Mind if I chime in?
I use florous for veg with great results. MH would be fine for veg. I just like the low heat produced with florous. I use an even mix of cool white and soft white.

ok, mutt and turkey; how about a combo of both fluero's and a 400w? i have seen a small cabinet grow set up with t5 grow tubes plus a 400w fer additional light, i thought it was a great idea. your thoughts? secondly, if ya got the money and are seeking a new ballast then maybe pick up 1 of the new switchable ballasts? then ya would be set fer a yummy personal growing experience.
