Not sure on what HID set up to get...
Greetings green thumbs!
I am looking to buy a HID light to power winter my tropical bonsai trees. The area ill be covering wil be about 5'x5' but i dont want to get a small light because ill be limited in my future uses of it. I have used a Hydrofarm HPS 1000w in the past and liked the results. Since i have no plans on flowering any of my trees I think i'm better off with a MH light. In looking around I see switchable ballests that will accept MH or HPS. that sounds pretty cool to me. Although i am warry about buying a light off ebay that seems like the best place to get one. I am on a budget but i want the best light for my needs.
I'd love to hear peoples thoughts and experiances on the subject. Thanks and happy growing!
