    I know hps spectrum is best for flowering cycle. I use a 250 agromax hps, but what if I keep 6,225 lumens more of blue spectrum (fluorescents), as well? It needs that amount of lumens added to satisfy grow space specs. (3,000 per sq ft) anyhow. The added blue spectrum shouldn't affect the Red, Orange Spectrum of flowering, should it?

    More light of any usable type is going to help.

    Well i cant tell you if you use that 400 W hps, its gonna increase your yield as well as the quality of your bud that you will get. sounds like if you keep that hps goin with what you already have you are gonna get a very nice crop. The more lighting the better...
