That light is perfect for veg, but not during flo, you need a 3000 lumen light for flo

Thirdeye i think is confused lumen and kelvins..... anyways i have never used a 70w (i have a 400w) but if your using it for 1-2 plants im sure that will be a good amount of light maybe get some cfls in there?

i use a 70 watt hps and 1 reptiglow 26watt 5% uvb bulb
so thats about 4000 lumens?
i dont realy know.
but the reptiglow makes up for what the hps lacks in kelvins.
although i should be getting this in the post soon.:)

I use two 70w hps and two 36w cfl's in my cab. Results are amazing when space is limited. It really depends on your style of growing. If youve got a big open space i would use a bigger HPS light, but for a small stealth cab they work amazing and don't put off a large amount of heat. All you need is a passive intake and a nice exhaust fan accompanied with a fan blowing over the tops to cool them. I will send some pics of my set up if you want.

diy hood and a money shot.
thats my new bulb too. the old one was eliptical and had 1cm clearance with the glass. temps 28-30.
new one has an inch clearance and temps are 24-26. a good investment i think.
