Im planning on using a 4x4 tent with a 600w MH/HPS light with a dimmable ballast. I’m wondering if I can start a seed using the 600w MH bulb? If I moved it far away, or even if I dimmed it, would it be safe to start my seedlings under?
Also wondering if I can run veg and flower on full 600w (MH/HPS for veg/flower respectively) as Ive read that you should increase watts for flowering. Should I veg with it dimmed to 400 and then up it to 600 when I switch to flowering and change bulbs? Any advice would be appreciated!
Side Note: This forum is by far the friendliest, most knowledgeable, and most helpful group of people I have come across while researching growing. I appreciate you all, and wouldnt be confident starting this adventure without you! Thank you all!
