  1. Hey,

    I'll start at the begging I'm growing 2 autos, in a rdwc, and I've got the lights for vegging and cloning covered but need help on a a good light for flowering I can pick up locally like at homedepot, lowes, hardware, store,

    I don't have the money to drop$ 500 on a system, but my budget is around $250 for some decent flowering light's, any suggestions is greatfuly appreciated, thanks guys !!!!.
     
  2. Old school HPS can be bought used on craigslist for pee nuts ...lol
    or a 250w HPS at home depot for 2 plants is easy

    good luck
     
  3. HD has a 1000watt Sodium grow light for right at 200 clams but that is a bit of overkill for 2 autos.
    If your veg lights are good enough you can likely flower under them if you kept an even playing field.
    T5 high outputs would do it but they'll have to be close and you'll only have a 12 inch actual effective range. Below that and it'll be fluffy.
    Seen it done in a field of green setup where he didn't have any head space. 4 foot crawl space under a house.

    SOG = Sea of green Usually done with lots of plants and a very short veg.

    Even a mature plant can be bent , folded, and forced to conform to your grow.
    List what you have for lights, put up pictures of the plants and we can toss more ideas around.
