- Life Expectancy
It has been mentioned by many professional indoor growers that indoor grow bulbs have the most intense lights in the first year. After one year it is recommended to replace the bulb because the light intensity gets weak over time.
Some claim you can run an additional harvest with an Eye Hortilux grow bulb. This is simply not true and if you did, the last harvest will not result in a bigger yield.
Eye Hortilux mentions this on their website regarding their bulbs as well. So knowing that you have to replace your grow bulbs once a year (roughly about two harvests), means that you would be spending more money on the long run on an expensive bulb.
The Eye Hortilux Super HPS can be used in both veg and flower, but in my experience, you will get much better results having a separate MH bulb for veg and then a standard HPS for flower. Put the money you saved on your flowering bulbs toward good veg bulbs, they will make more of a difference and you will be investing in fewer expensive bulbs.
5. Eye Hortilux have the same warranty as any other grow light bulb.
Yep. They follow the same 1 year warranty that has been standardized in the industry. This is because bulbs decrease efficiency after 1 year of use and they either tend to blow out by this time or lose their potency for your garden. Even though they might be superior initially, they have the same expiration date as all grow light bulbs in the industry.
