sorry no, mercury vapor lights are no good for growing the MJ. you need to use a HPS or a MH or floros.

I dont know anything about hydro so i cant help there.

Mercury vapor lights are not good for growing. They put off more heat than light, and the spectrum is wrong for growing. You could use it to light up the driveway or the yard. That's the kind of thing they're made for.

That's a difficult question to answer without knowing which hydro system you plan to use...of which there are many.
