    Default Tips on swapping bulbs as moving from veg to flower

    Hi guys, I'm about to change from veg to flower and I'll be going from a 400w to a 600w but was looking for some advice. How do I go about it, do I just change the bulbs over or do I leave a bit of time in between the swap. I don't know if that's a dumb question or not lol but I needed to ask. I'm pretty sure everything else is going great, I'm just not sure about this. Any advice???

    Most of us use hps all the way through .
    MH is a waste of space if ya ask me .

    Even better would be swapping all those for a good HLG lamp

    I'm a novice at all this, I've never heard of an HLG light, can you explain it please. The research I did pointed towards using a mh for veg and Hps for flower for good yields so I followed that but all advice is taken on board for next time. Think I'll go ahead and straight up swap bulbs over instead of waiting a bit between the swap, hopefully all goes well...

    Just google it, and you might want to ask our sponsor Invisible Sun, they can give you some information about the new LED'S. JMO

    Using MH for 2 weeks of 12/12 will reduce the stretch a bit.
