Ok I was at my uncles house and got hooked up with 200 bucks no strings attached. I am thinking about getting the 250 watt digital lumatek ballast and grow light with bat wing reflector from BG hydro and it runs $240.00 for the complete setup. I want this so that I can keep my mother plants and masterlows and powerstouts under it. I feel like it would be one of the best investments I could make considering I only have flourescent shoplights right now. www.bghydro.com look at the lumatek 250 watt hps I think it would be perfect for a beginner like me to start with considering I can do my flowering outdoors here in Florida while keeping my plants vegging under this or if need be flowering.
