Hello all, I'm new here and new to indoor growing. I've been doing some reading and I'm trying to get my indoor setup figured out. I'm setting up for a small indoor closet grow. 34"x57"x80" roughly. 6-8 plants. I'm trying to decide what to do for lighting. Right now I've got my seedlings growing under CFL's. I'm probably going to invest in a T5 fluorescent setup for the seedlings in the near future. Right now what I'm trying to decide is what kind of fixtures do I need for the actual vegging and flowering. I've decided that I want HID because of their proven performance and relatively inexpensive upfront cost compared to LED's. I want to use Metal Halide for vegging and High Pressure Sodium for flowering or maybe a combo of both for flowering. Here's where I have some questions. I don't have a lot of money for the lighting budget. I can get this light which is 1000 watts and will run either MH or HPS for a little more than $200. HTG Supply - GrowBright Switchable 1000w Grow Light Or I can get some used stadium lights that have been removed from an indoor arena. There is a 1000 watt Metal Halide that I can get for $140. Another guy has a few HPS fixtures that look like either 400 or 600 watts. I'm waiting on him to text me back with the wattage. He wants $20 each for them. He has 3 fixtures so that would be either 1200 or 1800 watts all together. Either way I'll be spending a little bit more than $200 right now which is really cheap from what I've seen. First of all is 1000 watts enough for 8 plants? I don't have any experience with indoor growing. I've had some success with outdoor grows but indoor makes more sense for me right now and I'm gonna give it a shot. Can I get some opinions on which way I should go with this? How much trouble would I have with cooling using the stadium lights compared with the actual grow light fixture? One of the reasons I wanted to use these stadium fixtures is so I can run MH and HPS for flowering. Obviously with the real grow light I can only run one or the other. Am I trying to get too much into my little closet? Is there such a thing as too much light? Any help would be very much appreciated.
