I wanna bring my banana plant inside in the fall to let it finish it's flowering.

but i need to know what light to use and how to set everything up. I need to know everything about grow lights

Do i need a reflector/fixture?

Do i need a ballast?

Can i just buy a 400/600 watt hps bulb and screw it in my light socket?

HALP lol

u need a ballast, and i would use a 600w reflectorgized HPS light from HTG supply - and get a digital 600w HPS ballast, you'll need a piece of aluminum bar and a few screw eye type hooks and some light chain to hold the lamp up, etc. and hold the whole thing together

the lamp is 60$, the ballast is 140$ + etc things cost another 50, so you will need about 250$ + money to cover the shipping, so around 300$
check with HTG supply, call them up, they are very good to deal with -
