Help! What should I do?
It would save me money if I could start my seeds under a 400-600 watt MH, but I've heard good things about T5 fluoro's for seedlings and veg. The bulbs are 55 watt each and produce 5000 lumens per bulb which would total 20,000 lumens for a 4 light fixtue, right? I know it would be best to use the fluoros' for seedlings and upgrade to a MH after a couple weeks, but I don't have the money for both, so.. ..
What to do what to do? Should I get the T5 fluoros' for the entire veg cycle, or can I simply start out with a 400-600 watt MH then switch to HPS for flower?
What are the pro's and cons of starting with just a MH?
To break down my options, the fluoros cost $200.00 including shipping + a HPS 400 watt system @ $150.00 total cost= $350.00
400 watt hps and mh system @ $205.00 including shipping
600 watt hps and mh system @ $315.00 including shipping
I can only spend $350 tops, but would rather spend less, lol! How hard is it to start seedlings under an HID? 400 watt or 600 watt?
Need help.. ..please respond! What would you do?
