Which is better and why? For that matter, if T5's run cooler, can they be used in place of HPS for flowering?

What little data I am seeing seems to indicate that T5's are very good to use, based purely on lumens and economical considerations.

Do they really compare to MH and HPS as far as bud quality and yield?

Sorry, but they don't. T5s are great for keeping mother plants and making clones. Flowering with them is not recommended. Your yield and quality will suffer greatly.


Then this link is a bunch of B.S.?
