Veg with 156W CFLs or 150W HPS?

  1. I have a feminized seed germinating right now and I have a choice. I have 6 26 watt 6500K CFLs on a power strip with y-splitters. I also have a Floralux 150 watt HPS.

    The question is, which should I veg with? Should I sacrifice the lumens and penetration for the right spectrum for vegging? Or should I just use the HPS the whole grow? Will the extra light make up for the fact that it's the wrong spectrum for vegging?

    :confused::confused::confused:
     
  2. Id Veg with the cfls. You can get them closer and they're of the blue spectrum so your plants will not stretch like they would under the hps. U wanna save those lumens for. Flower. Keep the cfls in flower + add hps.
