Some lamps have types of metal in them. They are either designed to hang in one position or all positions.Oldschool and cheap lamps used to blow up and spit hot metal and glass. I dunno if they still do that crap nowdays. I think some ceramic metal halides still have the potential to mess stuff up. At the very least you will minimize the life of the lamp if it is mounted improperly. Buy universal lamps theyre everywhere.

Yes it can happen and does. I bought a horizontal buld by mistake, placed it in my cooltube,turned it on and in less than 1/2 a day I had shards rattling around in my inline.
Be carefuk they can be bought universal, horz., and vert.
Ask at the counter for the one you want.
nice link . very informative. ty
Verticle is the way to go, once they get big I put t5s all around them verticle and even lay two on their backs facing up under the plant. Hang them any way you want. Good idea to add lights as you go to get the lower limbs. Craigslist t5s people sell them for 20 bucks at times. Collect them and use them as it grows.

thanks for that, looking at going for a 400w hps now, why not ha ha
It may be fine.. it may burn out early, and it could "possibly" crack or blow. The ONLY way to know for sure is to look up its model number and see. Just look at the bulb and write down the number, piece of cake.
