  1. I really only hear about people vegging with MH or CFL...I'm thinking of going with an 8-bulb, 4 ft T5 setup for veg (and possibly flower), but im curious-can you veg with a HPS and get good results?

  2. I am also a noob here. but in my opinion with my setup 1000w hps. as long as you know were to put the hps to wear it dont heat stress the plants it should be very very good results!!! My train wreck is loving the hps. my big j buds are younger and still heat stressed because i had it 1ft from the plants for a week. But there new growth is coming in fast and great looking!! just my 2 cents , but like i said i am a noob.
  3. If you do not want to deal with multiple types of light, an HPS will do a fine job from start to finish.
  4. OK, I'm stumped!!! :confused:

    I'm about to buy a 6 bulb 2' T-5 set up for Veg. and Flower.. (changing light spectrums of course.)

    However, I can get a 250W HPS for less money..
    Dont want to go any higher than 250 because of heat issues..
    My box is only 3 x 2. 5x 4.
    NOW, you guys got me thinking I just go for the HPS for both stages.
