Hps bulbs. What you using.

good day all, just wondering what hps bulbs people using.

dual spec or super hps.

What ones are the best to get?

 

currently I have a 250 w mh bulb for veg

and a choice of a 600w dual spec sun master and a super hps omega for flowering.

I find with dual spec you get more leaves in the kolas and not much else, yield, health and vigour pretty much the same as straight sodium.

 

I also use 250w MH for vegging, and change up to  a 400w MH for the last couple of weeks once they are big enough to justify it, otherwise 250w is fine. I also use the 400w for the first few weeks of flowering, it reduces stretching.

I've used Sunmaster and Omega sodiums, I think they are pretty much of a muchness, I usually go for Osram Vialox Son T Plus. Not sure if they are significantly better than others but the next sodium I buy will be Osram.

Hard to say mate,ime running a new strain at mo and only just switched onto these bulbs.

I will say the plants look very healthy tho and buds a mega dense but cant put that soley down to the bulbs until i can compare to old bulbs.

I use a 250cfl for propagation and a 400m/h for veg and a Son-T for flowering. I gave up the dual spec a few years back. as I thought it was extending the flowering time.
