    Used equipment, is it safe?

    First time using HID lighting. Just picked up a reflector, 600w MH lamp, and Apollo 600 ballast to replace my T5 setup. Hooked it all up, fired the light with no issue. On closer inspection, the ballast (model # uhps-d600) doesnt specifically say it can run MH lamps. Ballast is making a high...

    Mh conversion bulb same as mh bulb?

    My 400 watt lighting system uses an hps bulb at the moment. The manual says it can use a mh conversion bulb. When I look online not all mh bulbs say conversion. Does it have to say conversion or will any 400 watt mh bulb work? Provided of course that its has the right base. Ty

I have one fan and I'm aiming it at the bulb not the plants because I didn't feel happy when they were being blown around too much while so young. I'm worried its too hot in...

Ive just found out that 400 MH color temp only shows 4000 on the kelvin scale, but lumens are 36,000. 23w CFL...
