    They should work but I think I'd rather stick to my 250w HPS with 33,000 lumen

    My friends used to replace his after 2 grows anyway as the light spectrum changes over time.
    a money saved
    Even if u just using them in veg is going to be the biggest part of grow.

    As long as they can cope with 24 hours of constant use
