Quick query

I have an led light and a hps, can I run them for say 3hr led 6hr hps 3hr led or will they have to be on at same time for 12hr?

First proper grow so any advice is welcome.

My main concern is that the hps will clock up a hefty electric bill so thought about switching between the two lights

I've got a few different hps units but currently running a 600.

 

Friend of mine said that hps can cost a bit to run on 12/12 so just thought about cutting it down a bit.

 

Sick of paying for the stuff from unreliable people so growing my own but need to try keep it cheap
