Ok I am looking to buy a 400 watt HPS sodium light. I was looking at insidesun.com and they offer a few of these. I am wondering what the difference is between the econo, pro series, and regular? There is certainly a difference in price, but is it okay to buy the econo? its like 100$ and the pro series is like 300!!!


ALSO do I want a chrome bat reflector or a white reflector??!?!

I'm running the econo 250W with a chrome batwing. workin fine. I love it.

The pro-series comes with a hortilux bulb those are more expensive than the standard bulbs. Also the econo is inside suns ballast housing and transformer and cap. The pro-series is a name brand. and a much fancier hood and ballast enclosure.

They have (2) different econo set-ups. the 100 dollar one is a refurb. The 135 dollar is brand new.

Comes down to how much you wanna spend?

depends of your style of growing.

Sea Of Green growing method 1 plant per sq.ft. and a 50W per sqft. needed so that would be
8 plants flowered well.

B. Grunt flowered 4 full growth in his papaya grow journal.
