I think that most experts would tell you that if you can grow a gram per watt; You are getting excellent yield. I just got. 350 grams from 3 ww autos, under 1 400 watt IPower digital switchable lamp system. No heat issues; No big electric bill. I can but anything I want. I buy Digital lighting systems.
Just like Tim the Tool Man; More Power!!! V’rooom
I have 20 year old 1000 watt ballast that kick butt. Please do not make claims that HID ballast are inadequate due to the age of the ballast. I have 10+ systems. 9 HID; Both MH and HPS, plus 2 newer digital IPower systems. T5 systems, and a who;e bunch of T8’s and BYO clf setups.
I have friends all over the world that are Cannabis moderators. Some like LED, but most still find, and it is true. HID growa bigger buds. Not saying that LED does not work, but HID grows bigger buds.
So; All you new growers who are scared of heat and electirc bills. Don’t be scared to buy; Digital Switchable lamps, because they produce bigger buds. The heat issue is minimal; Electrical usage is minimal. I am so tired of this debate.
HID biggest buds inside.
LED cooler, less elctricity, but smaller yield.
CFL, and T5, T8: Ok to gorw from start to finish, but expect much smaller yields.
At 20 a gram. I have no isse with a 50 dollar a month electric bill increase, in order to produce a few hundred bucks more worth of high quality harvest.
Sorry for the rant. Iam very passionate about the years of investment and research I have put into this field.
I wish everyone a happy goodnight. Peace.lw
