  3. Well are you going to flip them back to veg once they show sex? Or be going into flower?
     
  4. Yes that is the plan ,switch back to veg unless I'm recommended otherwise, I already switched in the HPS bulb . If thats a bad idea ide appreciate any comments and advice.
     
  5. If they are going back into veg I would have kept them under MH. The HPS wont make them flower any quicker but it will contribute to stretching once they start to flower.

  10. HPS during any phase will promote stretching and long internode spacing while MH helps produce tighter node spacing and more lush vegetative growth.

  15. I agree with Answer here. And as everyone has said it's bad to jump back and forth like that, stresses the plants.
