  1. I thought I saw a post about this the other day, but I cannot find it, just wondering if anyone has any experience with the product, and how was their yield vs like a HPS
  2. Im using a t5, and there is a thread in the absolute newbies section about them. I think they work well but Im pretty sure most growers on here use them mainly for veg. I happen to come up on an inexpensive 400W hps and Im planning on using that for flowering. good luck.
  3. Thanks, I figured they where veg only, but one can dream, I have a 500w hps that was gifted to me just a little timid to use it.
  4. i think you could flower two plants, or one monster, under 4 t5's..i just use them for veg, but i remember thinking about whether or not i COULD flower under them if i wanted.
  5. if u can veg/flower with t8/t12's why not t5's? t5's are supposed to have higher output right?

    2 on the top and 1 on each side... that would work great.
  6. yeah i mean u can probably veg and flower with a flashlight too, Im just saying most ppl dont flower with them but a lot DO use them for veg. 500W HPS got any pics???

  7. dont be a dick. theres plenty of fluorescent growers here so save the flashlight bullshit.
  8. dont mean to be a dick. Im just saying I think the point isnt whether or not its POSSIBLE to flower with the T5, just if its PRACTICAL. expecially if he has a 500W HID, feel me?
  9. well lemme restate that I just have the bulb, and the means to purchase the rest of the settup. I'm still several months before I flower and wanted to get my next room settup.
  10. I just wanted to see the 500 didnt know they existed.
