    how big do you plan on growing the plants before flowering? u might be able to do 2 small plants but it will get crowded

    Hey I have a 250HPS that Im gonna try 2 use, havent done an indoor grow in a few years. But I know if u can use mirrors and such, U can get alot more with the light. I did it a while ago with a 400 and some floro's as well, worked out ok. Anyways I have like 9 seedings started, hope 2 get like 4 good female at least, so Im hope it works out. They are like maybe 5days, well good luck.

    WEll I guess every1 has there own way 2 do it, but Ive never had a problem with using mirrors, it refelex the light the best, I find it way better then using white oaint, but then again thats just me.

    I've grown in a small steath cab for about 3 years using a 150 HPS. I kept my plants smal -, 4 of 'em in 6 qt. pots in about 3.5 sq. ft. Lights kept about 5-6 in from the tops. I could get just over an oz from each. I grew in a perpetual harvest so was getting a harvest every 3 weeks if I let them go for 12 weeks.

    Yeh you really shouldnt use mirrors man, you would be much better off with white matt paint or emulsion.

    :peace:

    Sorry to burst all your bubbles guys but he is fine with the mirror. It's not as good as the right flat white paint and not as good as mylar but with his light he doesn't have to worry about hotspots it's not stong enough to matter.

    White paint.. better Behr ultra pure white flat wall paint, or another brand that is identical.

    Anway he is right, he won't have a problem other than less reflectiveness. How do I know this? I use first surface mirrors which are more reflective now in my latest grow with over double his amount of light.

    Anyway back to the original question. What were we talking about again?

    Oh yea veg and flower, just fine. It's not the proper spectrum for veg according to anything in any book you will ever read but because veg takes so much less power than flowering it makes little difference.
    How many plants...
    One to many.

    I'm using 46w daylight CFL's for vegitative growth. How tall should i let them get before putting them into flowering which will be done with a 150w HPS? I have 3 plants 2 Nirvana PPP and 1 Duthch Passion Trainwreck. Any other advice would be great.
