    Second choice mh veg, hps flower.
    I would not use floros to flower with. Reason light wispy buds compared to hps.

    I'm confused, too. I couldn't get anything to come up either on Amazon--broken link? Can you try reposting the link?

    You can get a combo digi setup with both MH and HPS bulbs if you want to avoid buying two lights. However, even with the same number of lumens per watt, the T5s will spread the light better and be cooler. I did use MH all the time for vegging before I discovered T5s. I do think it is worth it to try and get both lights if you can, but I understand if finances are tight and you can only swing one of them.

    Yeah I was thinking about trying out the t5s BC a couple reasons they are cheaper and they run cooler like you said THG but also I need help with what types of bulbs I could get with the t5s...and I have 400w mh and hps now but I need better :)

    You do not want to flower with T5s, though. I was just talking about hem for veg. And you can get a HID setup for not much more than a T5.

    How large a space do you have?

    What is HID good for? Veg or flower?
