iso info 600w hps ballast compatible lamps for veg growth
Hey folks. New member here. Nice place!
I just bought three used 600w HPS grow-light systems (at a awesome price). Now trying to decide on new bulbs to buy. Want to winter-grow a broad scope of seedlings and young plants in my no-sun basement so vegetative growth is my focus. I want to stick with HID equipment and preferably my 600w HPS ballasts as are. I'd consider kit-converting part of my ballasts to MH/CMH but please, no off-thread discussions of fluoro's.) :)
Have read all the vendor and marketing hype so looking for hard data and/or personal experience with bulbs. Have short-listed several HPS compatible bulbs. Particularly looking for info on Life Light Technology's 600W Sun Pulse Metal Halide Retro series. Series includes a 3K, 4K, 6.4K and 10K. The higher K ones draw attention but I can't find any decent spectral/PAR/PUR etc info. The one vendor I've seen for the bulb didn't know much. I emailed Life Light Technology asking for info. Haven't gotten a reply. Typical, don't ask questions, just buy our "better than anyone else's" product!
Eagerly awaiting the anticipated 600w CMH HPS compatibles, especially a 600w Philips Mastercolor HPS-retro, but until then, I've got some seeds to grow! Thanks
