  1. For some reason tapatalk doesn't have a section for growing, so this is going here.I'm planning my first grow, it's gonna start once I have everything I need. I have two 150w HPS bulbs with mogul bases that I'm gonna use for three plants, but they say to use only with a compatible ballast. I've never heard of a light bulb needing a ballast, is it possible to get a mogul fixture that's self ballasted? It was a bummer to find out I needed to get a special socket, and now I need to get something else even more obscure to me. It says it needs an ANSI s55 ballast. So: Can I get a fixture that is ballasted already without needing to get something separate?If I can, do they have them with mogul bases?What would happen if I didn't use a ballast?ThanksSent from my iPhone
     
  2. Well now I'm thinking of just using CFLs throughout the whole process, considering it's my first grow; I'm only growing three plants in a small space so I need to keep the heat down; and I'm trying to be as stealthy as possible and use the least amount if electricity. How many watts should I have? A hundred per plant? So would 300watts be okay for three plants?Sent from my iPhone

  7. Save up some money and buy a bigger bulb, ballast, and hood and you'll be good to go. It's worth the few hundred. Sent from my iPhone using Grasscity Forum
