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?

  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.
