    I got 1 of each a few weeks ago for free and I might be getting 1 more mh and 1 more hps. I am currently only growing 1 plant and I have 28,000 more lumens from cfls. the MH lumens is about 6500 and the hps is 4000. how much of a difference will the HID lighting make? my plant is 2 feet tall, but I am growing vertically

    more lumens the more bud production running the MH AND HPS will increase yeild and growing. for one plant that will make a nice short plant if you flower early

    i have a 600 watt hps that will be used for flower but I will use these lights through all stages because I can get those little hps lights ridiculously close to my plant

    You'll get a extra 14000 lumens give or take.

    I put the lights into my 600 watt hood and WOW the hoods make an amazing difference. I am getting 2 more 100 watt mh and 2 more 50 watt hps I found out. I am probably going to make my own hoods out of cardboard and good reflective paper. I think I can come up with a serviceable enough design or look one up on google that will work just as good as the one I bought for my 600 watter
