I've decided to switch from using my power compact flourescents to metal halides on my highland enclosure but I know plants dislike a sharp increase in light all of a sudden.
How would be the best way for me to do this?
Here's the setup:
4 ft H x 4 ft W x 2ft D plastic and plywood enclosure (plants at different levels most neps about 24" from lid
humidistat keeping the air at 80%
I want to switch from 175 watts PC flourescents to either 175 watt or 250 watt metal halide - I have bulbs and ballasts for either - which would be better the better choice?
Thanks for any info!
