Need Help with Lighting Decision

Discussion in 'Grow Room Design/Setup' started by schmedrickk, Jun 6, 2009.

  1. Hi Guys,

    I was wondering if someone can help me with a lighting decision? I currently have a 2' (4) bulb T5 Flouro which has been excellent for Veg, but it seems to be lacking where Flowering is concerned. Only the top 1/3 of the plants seem to get enough light from the T5 during flowering. The total output is 8,000 Lumens in both Veg and Flower.

    My grow tent is 4 x 4 x 7, and I have more than adequate intake and exhaust fans, but I don't want to have to get overly complicated with ducting through the light to keep it cool.

    I found this light setup and it looks like it could be perfect for a small 2 plant grow in my tent. What do you think?

    Sunleaves Pulsar Two-Way Mini MH & HPS (HID)


    400W Standard Metal Halide Bulb
    (36,000 Initial Lumens)


    400W Standard HP Sodium Bulb
    (50,000 Initial Lumens)

    Thanks for your help!
