    Default HPS 600w recommendations

    Hi guys,

    I flipped my girls last night so will leave it until I have pre-flowers to start using my HPS.
    I can't get my hands on a Hortilux bulb so what would be your next best suggestion for a high-quality 600w HPS bulb?

    TIA

    Although some of the bulbs are rated a little better than the cheaper ones, I have not had a problem with just the 10.00 bulbs. They all seem to work well. JMO

    I was undecided on waiting 1 week or 2 for the LEDs until I switch to HPS. Reckon I can comfortably wait 2.

    Do you have a preferred HPS brand, joker? Or much of a muchness?
