    For veg, use a sunmaster metal halide then switch to a sylvania 600 high pressure sodium for flowering (uses the same ballest). You'll get a great harvest using this method. The MH should last you a few grows but it's reckommended to change the HPS after one or two as it loses lumins and quite a rate..


    Anyone who says nothing is impossible clearly has never tried to slam a revolving door..

    A Sunmaster dual spectrum is a lamp not a cooltube/reflector.

    I wouldn't say cooltubes are crap..I have one with a 600w MH/HPS and it keeps my temps around 22c to 27c..yes you lose lumens but if you have the bulb higher you lose lumens anyway
