    Is this HTG light system good..is it good quality,and has anyone ever used one of them?I need all info on this light fixture,or HTG's customer service!!Thanks...High Tech Garden Supply

    Also,lets say I grow this in a small closet,and I dont use ducting and cooling..is it sufficient by just poingting some house fans at the bulb??And having as much fans blowing upwards to make the warm air rise above the canopy?

    What if I leave the closet door open as much as I can?:hump::hump::hump:

    i got my 400w hps ballast bulb and reflector for 149.99 from HTG supply on EBAY. ive used it for almost 9 months and no problems. i have it in a closet and YES it will get hot. at first i just had a fan in there and it got up to like 90 degrees. now i have a 5000 btu a/c in my window and one fan in the closet pointing out the corner.i have a huge blanket covering the closet.and it works GREAT.

    Do you think its possible to manage the temps with alot of fans..like maybe 5 fans pointing up at the light system?I dont wanna invest in a portable AC..also keep in mind I am somewhere in Fl...the "hot"part lol...How hot will it get?What if I leave the closet door kinda open,and have a fan blowing OUT the door....pretty much a cheap and simply ventilation setup?...!

    may work ..if your in a hot climate and not have proper cooling could be problems , but i use 2 400 watt in a 4 foot by 5 foot area and vent with a little bathroom ventilation fan and have an osculating fan and it stays in the 90's which my plants don't seem to mind they actually get pretty crystalline to try and keep from drying up

    I've had the 400w hps light from htg for about 2 months and i'm using it in about the same set up. It's in a closet with sliding doors. i keep each side open about 4 inches. I use two fans, on on the floor, on one end of the closet, blowing up towards the light, but also serves to keep air moving over the plants. the other fan is in the top of the closet on the other side and serves to vent warm air out. I also keep the ballast outside of the closet. But i've never had temps at the canopy top 82 degrees.
    The light works great, but i wish i had put the money into an air cooled hood at the time. it would save me some money on my next project of building a grow cabinet or modifying the closet so that it'll be light proof.

    Oh ok...I really wanna buy the 400W HPS...then just flower 9 plants..SOG style.

    One plant per square foot,in coco coir/perlite....how much might this yield from lets say..Big Bud clones?

    Also,how far can I have the light over the canopy?Without the plants stretching for the light??!

    yea even portable ac need to vent somehwere for the moisture and the hot hair HTG makes good stuff and if something goes wrong they stand behind it also since ur in flordia i think they have a store in flordia u might be able to save some money on shipping

    Dude, your going to have to run an exhaust out of the closet or the hot air will keep circulating. We don't know what your setup looks like so it is hard for anyone to tell you exactly how to do it.

    If having the door open a little bit is not a concern then you can face the AC into the closet and let the warm air flow out the back. There are also AC units that are no venting required like this one:

    But they are in the $150- $200 range so you might want to think about getting a system from HTG that will help with the ventilation.

    You need to be spending a little bit more anyway. That is just an HPS light which is for flowering, so you will also need to get a MH conversion bulb for vegging.

    It will make your closet grow a lot easier if you invest in the right system.

    na for vegging i use t-5..besides,ince im done with this ak48 seed run,and have a chosen mother plant..im gonna be doing sog grows with NO vegging..at 40 clones floered from root to 12/12....so no point ion getting a mh bulb..and also,if ima invest in a fgan,its gonna be a nice vortex fan,which are castly,so i mighty as well get one of those..any links to a ac like that 1??:hump::spew:

    I bought a 1000 watt light set up from HTGSupply over a year ago . I got the digital balast, 6"vented Hood, bulb, socket & Cord. Great set up for a beginner and have been happy with it. I do wish I would of gotten two 600watt digital setups can't beat that basic setup light kit they have for 199.00. Thats gonna be my next purchase from them and sell my 1000watt . I don't know why you don't get the 600watt kit over the 400watt , not much difference in the price and with the 600watt your gonna get more light for your bang and not really alot more heat..But yeah for a beginning start up I recommend HTGSupply.
