Jeff S replied to Chris Blanco's discussion HID lighting in the group Artificial Lighting
"Hi again Chris. After looking at your drawing I would put 2 400watt HIDs over each bed. I don't know if you've ever used HIDs before but they are quite intense even at 400 watts. Putting 3 1000s between the tables would cause you to have…"

"Yeah, that's the real price of the API Master test kit. Wow, $65CDN is pretty expensive! (even at the 0.86 exchange rate). Probably VAT (or GST...or whatever other taxes they've come up with recently...Serbia was the same way), and import…"

"Yup, that makes sense. Thanks. I checked out your store and the $$ look good. Too bad I have to put up with the $Cdn against the US$, plus freight. Is that the real price for the API Master test kit? Up here they are $65. My daughter is slavering…"

"Hi Ian,  I would go with a dimmable ballast over a dial-a-Watt ballast. They are not at all the same thing. With the "dial a Watt" type, you set the ballast to a particular wattage (say 600Watts, then need to use ONLY a 600Watt…"

"Since you've probably already done some basic research...I'll skip all that and just say that unless you are growing "medicinal herbs" you might be better off with MH. My plants have always been more leggy using only HPS over…"
