600W Dual spectrum HPS bulb or 110W T5 for veg?

Hi, my MH bulb stopped working yesterday. Luckily I have a 110W T5 light and a 600W HPS dual spectrum bulb I can use in the meantime until I get another MH. I don't know which is best and wondered if anyone has any opinions? What should I be lighting my (2 week old) 6 plants with? Cheers

The T5 is adequate for mums/clones/seedlings.

 

If your in full veg (with a view to flowering asap) then use the 600.

 

2p only

yep, save yourself leccy costs by using the T5 if the plants are still small, also, if your ballast is an adjustable digi one then get a 400w MH instead of the 600w MH.
