Golden Syrup

Which kind of lighting unit do I choose?

That's the purpose mate, all about higher altitudes and the relation to psycho activity...some claim that due to being higher, UVB filtration is less through the atmosphere and thus the plant produces increased trichomes...it's interesting and something I'm looking into a little more :yep:

Ive found the Eye Hortilux Super HPS 1000 watt Horticulture bulb, with enhanced Blue, is all I need as far as an HID goes.

Ive used them fo both Veg/Flower ever since they came out. I use 1 in Veg, and 2 in the flowering room. Raptor 8 inch Hoods are used.

I also use the new Hortilux T5 PowerVeg + V Full Spectrum in Veg at a rate of a minimum 108 watts per 4 x 4. I use 162 watts. They also make Several different spectrums, but these work for me.

In flower I use the T5 ARCADIA Desert Reptile D3+ 12% UVA. This is the most powerful Reptile Bulb made and makes the Reptisun seem tame.

Also you must turn them off when working around them, or You Will/ either get Cataracts, or go Blind.

The Arcadia are especially powerful and will for sure quickly scorch your eyeballs. Use with caution.

On 12/12 Ive found 9.5 hours on is optimal.

I veg at 24 hours and turn the lights off 3 hours every 3 days to rest the HID ballast.

On a 24 hours cycle I will keep the UV lights on 19 hours.

The Arcadia Desert Bulb also has 30% UVB/12% UVA
