    I got my check and went down to the hydro store expecting to play $250.-$300. for a new light.

    They had a used ballast for $50.

    and a giant hood for $20.! The new 'used' hood is big enough to cover the whole garden,
    and with the new bulb ... is mystifying it is so bright.

    Everything is good, growing well and I am contented.

    (Except that I can't type on my borrowed laptop}


    Thank you...

    Hackerman,


    400w as it is enough for one man and heat is less a problem.
    My old 400w gave me 27 years of faithful service but just got old and died.
    The new {used} hood is giant!
    It covers the whole garden!
    I think I'll roll a joint.


    Thank you...
