Whats up stash.stash said:yea...its 89$ on ebay - used ballast / new unopened hps light / new reflector. retails for 150$. so it should work? would a 400watt(only 30$ more) be too much light for my 3 plants? THANKS
I agree that it's better to have more light than your plants can use than less.massproducer said:IMHO, no it would be great in that area, that would give you around 66.7 watts per square foot. This amount of light will create some very nice dense buds.
You will however have to have your area properly vented with the correct size exhaust fan or even better you could use a cool tube.
Others may disagree but I would rather be over the required lumens and have to deal with the heat, then be under and have to settle for small stringy buds, but that is just my point of view.
Yes, but I would start the light out at 24 inches from the tops of the plants until you see how they do. When they show new growth, move the light in to 18 inches and watch them very closely for a couple of days.stash said:i should be able to use my hps light on baby 3 week old plants correct?
