  1. ok ladies and gentlemen. Its light buying day. I hava48x24x60 tent. I wanna scrog just 2 plants. What light should I buy. I can get a 4ft x8bulb T5 that would cover the whole canopy of the plants. I get a 400 watt  hps/mh cool tube. The cool tube is 24inches long. I wanna order it tonight. What will give me better coverage and better buds?

    With a 48" width, I would say the no brainer would be the t5.. A 400 watt has like a 3x3 footprint tops. Your edges will suffer with a 400.. T5 super close, scrog, clear all bottom growth focusing only on what's above the screen and you ll be very happy.
