On average, those bulbs put off 1269 lumens each
Your plants will be fine under that light for another week or even 2, but they will keep stretching and getting taller instead of bushing out. If they stretch too much there is a chance of them falling over once they start growing buds. Top them as soon as possible to help the light reach the lower branches.
Thanks for all the help.
im going to buy a 400 watt HPS. i just need to hurry up and im going to two hydro shops tommorow anything else i need to know
@four20seven- are you talking about my lamp is that good for now or what thanks
Yeah, anything under 15,000 lumens is not adequate enough for flowering plants. HTGSupply has a 250watt HPS for around $100 that puts out 25,000 lumens. They also have a 150 watt mini HPS for around $75. But shopping around is your best bet you can save a ton of money. Prices are getting cheaper every day.
