Is it better to use metal halide in the veg stage and then HPS during flower or HPS is fine?
I’m a first time grower and started seeds with 75 watt halide, week 2… 175 watt metal halide… week 3. 250 watt metal halide… week 4. 400 watt metal halide. Week 5. 600 watt metal halide. When I’m ready to flower was gonna hit it with 600 watt HPS.
I already had all the halide set ups from doing marine aquariums. I’m just curious if I’m doing too much. The grow is going just as planned but wondering if I’m creating too much work when need not.
Doing aquariums in my past has me extremely cautious about lighting and perimeters.
