Yea dude you can bloom with weak ass cfls if you have too. A 1000 watt mh in addition to your hps would add some great extra light!

Of course....and your plant will still grow full and healthy provided all your conditions are being met. Grow lights are designed to produce the type of light a plant needs to grow. Of course, for the best possible light plants use HPS for blooming but metal halide will work just fine.
Many people will say plants definately grow bigger with HPS during bloom. These are the same people who did not set up a controlled test and see the same strain, under the exact same conditions side by side.
The bottom line is you can definately use MH.
Hope this helps.
Hell yea that shit will come out great as long as you take care of them girls. Good luck and post some pics if u can.
i think it might take longer to harvest and from what i have seen a slight yield decrease anybody else think the same?
yea a little less yeild but still a worthy ending product!

I used MH's for years before switching over to HPS.
The only reason I use HPS's is becasue they don't put off as much heat.
Hope you've got really good ventilation, because that 1000w MH will make your room really warm.
That why I like to use MH's for vegging, The MH's help keep the temperature up aroung 83 degree's.
Which is where I like to keep during vegg.
My vegg period is extremely short. I vegg only for 2 weeks.

yea so I guess the 80% of people on riu that use hps for flowering to get a better yeild are all full of shit. Hps are well known by all growers to be way more effective than mh for flowering. you will need some good ventilation but im sure you know that.
