ok thanks for the help bro. i juss didnt want to go buy another light when the one i have works fine.
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.

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..
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..

They run pretty cool, at least the one I have is a sun system self ballasted one, they are pretty common. As long as you have some ventilation it should not be a problem.
Here's a picture of one of my first grows. This was vegged for 4 weeks~ under a 150 hps along with 1 other plant, I flowered under a 400 watt, though. The only difference I have with the 400 is a way larger canopy and the yields are superior along with less stretching (pic 2).
off topic..looking back I think went a tad overboard with the lst considering my grow space .

I only plan on having one of these fixtures, not two.

A 150w should net you a qp if done right
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.
