In the morning my fellow growers. I getting ready for my next grow. I am using my old trusted magnetic 600w HPS in a air-cooled hood and use this set up for flower. I use (2) six bulb 4ft T5 lights for veg in a 4.5 x 4.5 x 7 ft tent with 4 plants in 5 gal fabric pots in soil.
I have a very low budget for new equipment and just using what I have on hand or else I’d upgrade to LED. But I can squeeze in the cost of a bulb if needed.
I was in a store today and noticed some 600w conversion bulbs on the shelf and wondered if I could use that instead of the T5’s for veg?
I look forward to hearing any feedback.
