Hey guys! First I was growing my plants under 440 watts of VHO. I had to move many plants closer to the lights (within inches) by putting them on tall pots and tupperwate. Ugly....
Then I tried feebily to grow under 250 watts of HPS, the light was ugly as hell and made my plants flower well, but the growth was hideous and etoliated. That lasted about a month and I switched back to VHO.
I bought a 250 watt Ushio Metal Halide conversion bulb.. WOWIE WIE WOW! I've never been happier over spending 60 bucks!
These pics are half as bright as in real life. I couldn't figure out how to make the camera stop dimming things down. you get the idea. Just picture them twice as bright. It lights up my whole room!
Seriously it hurts your eyes to go into my room I could get a suntan!
