lowes indoor grow lights

Lowes indoor grow lights

Well, I went to Lowes last night, and looked in their light department. Now, they were selling 40w grow lights, and it said right on the package, Grow Light – it was a grow light. Now, when I read about people growing MJ in their home (I’m not), its some 400w HPS light, and so how can this 40w light be suitable for growing, when most of the indoor growers are getting 400w (not always 400w, that’s just an example – its usually a little higher or lower) HPS lights?

Lowes sells a Regent 150w HPS, and OG has a tried a true , remote ballast conversion instruction manual for this light.

I asked the guy if they sold HPS lights and he just kind of looked at me funny. Then I asked him about grow lights and he brought me to those 40w lights, and this guy was the lighting manager/supervisor guy. Would you happen to have a link to that instruction manual on OG?

Security lighting? Never thought of that, I always thought that they were grow lights.

Well, I am not growing anything illegal indoors – but I will be outdoors. Anyways, I will be purchasing it store with cash, so I won’t really have to worry too much about the security issues involved.

Edit: That www.insidesun.com looks pretty good though. I don’t want to have to order it to another place though, it was enough trouble just getting the seeds

Edit: I actually am growing something illegal, forgot about that

Area not number of plants is important. 50w/sq.ft is recommended.

MH grows beautiful green vegetation but doesn’t have the right spectrum for flowering. HPS Son-T Agro has the right spectrum for both but still doesn’t get the lush green that a Metal Halide will.

The seeds you won’t sow are the plants you dont grow.

well im a big fan. but my animals made me bias before i got into plants.

they are all i use currently.

The seeds you won’t sow are the plants you dont grow.

Just remember to select the type of lighting for the type of growth you require. HPS promotes flowering and fruiting. MH promotes vegatative growth. HPS is in the red spectrum, MH is in the blue spectrum.

To give you an example. a 1000 watt MH is best to cover an 8’x8′ area for maximum growth. I have a 1000 watt and it’s amazing how bright it is. Get plants too close and it will burn em to a crisp.

If I was to get a 400w MH Light with the chrome reflector, about how far away should it be from the plants? I will have plants of pretty different highs, so is there a little leeway when it comes to the distance between light and plant? If the 400w MH really covers an area of 3′ x 3′ then I’m all set with one.

use your hand as a guide.

if you can hold your hand under the light and it doesn’t get very hot, then it probably won’t damage foliage, most plants are different and will react different under hids. be on the look out for burn.

you will want to make the light adjustable so that you can start out higher and gradually lower it so that you dont shock you plants. or you can mount the light and use mike crates or shelves to raise and lower the plants as they grow, this way the tops of the plants line up even if some are bigger than others.

400 watt is going to give you plenty of light and will for sure cover a 3*3 area. you will be like oh shit thats too bright! don’t spend too much time looking at the light it can be harmful to your eyes, wear sunglasses.

also i recommend spending the extra loot on a nice hid, many people try to build them, and there is no reason to worry about burning your crib down or frying yourself.
also the reflectors and bulbs on horticulture hids is vastly superior to that of hids from home depot. in the long run you will save yourself money and time by starting with something proper. that being said, if you have an electrical knowledge then you could take this on with little problem.

and if you are using the light 12 hours a day it can get kinda expensive, especially with energy prices being so high. so make a note of last months bill and then look at the difference, just for your own knowledge, not to worry power company’s don’t care how much power you use as long as you pay your bill.
