Setting up 4x8 tent

  1. Hello,
    I am setting up my 4x8 tent.  I am growing 8 plants total.  Each in 20 gal smart-pots
    I will be running two 600 watt HPS lamps to flower.
    I was wondering if two 400 watt MH lamps would be enough to veg in this situation???

  2. It will be fine, more light is always better though.
  3. They do make a 600w MH conversion bulb.  Do those perform better than the standard 400w versions? Or is it not worth it if I have a ballast that will run both??
    I was also considering running 3 lights in the tent, but I am going to start with 2 and see how the heat management goes and then possibly upgrade later. 
  4. Yes they do. We use them. They are better for plant growth in our testing.
    We like Ushio for brand.
