    so the ballast on my 600w hps blew in my flower tent. they are about 2 weeks into flower, stopped stretching and are starting to get popcorn buds. luckily i have an old 150w i threw in there till i can get my new ballast (have 2 yr warranty) so my question is how much do u think it will hurt the yield if i had my 150 in there for a week or so while i waited for a new ballast? 2 plants in a 4x3 tent.

    View attachment 2646818 the pic is to give a general idea of how much space it needs to cover

    it will slow them down a little but they should still be fine. I have no idea how to estimate the projected weight loss at the end of flowering caused by 350 less watts for 1.5 to 2 weeks at the beginning.

    awesome, so u think that's enough light for the time being? i usually have my light on from 9am-9pm will it hurt them that they were in the dark till like 4 pm today?

    it would have been better to keep the light off and give them a dark day.

    not having as much light or much less then there used to will of corse effect the end product, but as no one can say how much by, keep the journal up to date and compair it to the next one.

    look into the gas lantern light routine it changed the way i grow an now i need to tell everyone lol its sooo much better then 12/12
