1 26 watt cfl will get a plant growing, just won't produce much....nearly nothing. A 150 hps watt light will for sure grow a few plants, and produce a nice amount of bud. I grow with 5-7 CFL's at one time and keep my temps low, 70-80....I produce maybe half to 1 ounce a plant in 2 gallon smart pots. I also low stress train, which I know has helped my yield a ton. But to answer the question, yes a 150 hps WILL grow a decent amount of bud (taking into account you have the right nutes and grow area for your girls).

It never hurts to have more light, more light = more bud, so if your wanting to increase your production then getting a more powerful light always helps. But yes, 150 will grow a decent plant.

Basically you have to think about what you want to accomplish from your grow.. A 150 will get one big girl or two medium sized girls through flower.. If you want to grow more than two at a time then you'll need to step up to something a little bigger..

I have a 600 right now which can flower 4 big girls or about 6 medium girls..

You also have to take into account heat so if you do decide to move up in wattage be sure to have some type of ventilation or a bad situation can develop quickly.. :eek:

Your best bet though is to set up a small vegg with a mom or two for clones.. Get them to size and move them in.. A perpetual will keep you in the smoke with little down time..

I was looking at the all in one 150HPS fixture on amazon. It look perfect for someone like me. I dont want tons of wattage but I wasnt to be able to nicely grow 1 maybe 2 plants at a time. I think thats probably what I would use for my next grow instead of 4x24W T5

I'm really interested in something like that! I'm currently using one 150w Sun System HPS to gow 2 plants in 5g pots. Unfortunately 1 of them (my sativa) isn't doing so well but the other 1 is thriving & 14 days into flower right now. I'm unsure of the strain but here are a couple of pics of my healthy girl I call "Daddy'z Kure" because I'm unsure of the strain.:smoke:

Is 43 watt enough for one decent personal view?
