  • HPS, MH and CFL question....

    Hi! I'm new to indoor grow and have been reading everything online only. I have a 3' x 3' grow tent and I was curious if i could use 1 400w MH light, 1 400w HPS light and 2 100w CFL lights from seed to harvest? Planning to go with 18-6 during germination to veg and 12-12 during flower. Any guidance and suggestions would help. Thanks

    HI Joe. Do you mean to have the HID lights running at the same time, or one for veg and then change for flower? I think that one after the other would be ideal for that tent, with the CFLs as supplementary lighting. If you mean to run them at the same time - then that's ok but be careful of heat issues, that's a lot of light for a small tent.
    Glad to hear you've been reading up. All the information is out there. Looking forward to seeing how your first grow goes.

      Gotta agree with Schmokin-just use the MH during veg, and then switch to the HPS and add the CFL if needed. You should be able to grow some great smoke with that setup.
