    Light Mover

    I'm wondering if anyone out there is using light movers for their grow. I'm thinking of installing one but wonder if its worth the money. I'm using a 1000w
    hps in the room with about not more than 10 plants at a time. I understand the idea behind them but wonder if its just another gadget.

    Yes ... They will double the space of your grow area and eliminate shadeing.

    Re: Light Mover

    At looking at the store bought light movers, there are two types. One is 6 rpm and the other is 10 rpm. Is there going to be much of a difference in lighting. Any experiences?
    I'm thinking of using a 600 watt. Seems they are the cheapest to run and you can have the light real close to the plants, esp. when it is moving.
    I will buy both a conversion bulb along with the hps.
    It has been brought to my attention that a 600 may not have enough light on a 6 foot light mover.

    Re: Light Mover

    What speed are your light movers? 6rpm, 10 rpm or DIY? Are you using 150 hps bulbs?
    Advise on your system. What type of reflective material are you using. Did you apply it to the walls, floor and Ceiling?

    wouldn't a hub mounted on a rail with a DPST be simpler?
