Exclamation Help me decide on what lose to use in 5x5 tent

New Grower!

I got a 1000 watt HID with a in-line fan Iím wondering what system would work best with the light i already have Iím leaning heavy toward flood and drain because thatís what Iíve been around and feel like is easier for me. I have a lot of bag seed Iíve accumulated over the past year. I also need to get another setup going Iím about to buy 2 5x5 tents and need to know what lights work best for that space (one for veg/mom one for flower)Iím thinking of going with hps but want to know what would be best for quality and good yields. Any help is appreciated. Sorry if Iím unclear on some of the things Iíve said like I said Iím a first time grower. Thank you in advance! Iím ready to answer questions and learn some more!

I like t8 4ft. fluorescent for the price. But I have 2 viparspectra 450 switchable spectrum and use them from start to finish in a 2ft X 4ft area.

i would go for the 1000watt if you can keep the temps right in your grow.

Have you used HID or HPS before LEDs? Which worked best for you? I’ll pop those seeds with my 1k HID thank you!

I have used a 250 MH before but even that is overkill for seedlings and young plants. I pay the light bill so I try to economize where possible I wouldn't run a 1000 watt for 18 or 20 hours a day when I could ruu 2 or 4 t8's at 64 to 128 watts. or led's at 200 watts.
Your bill your choice.

Sorry I thought I read HPS. I don't think HID has the correct spectrum for photosynthesis, are you talking Quartz, HPS or MH?. Google that and find out. Quartz is the one that dosen't grow plants
I have used High Pressure Sodium 250watt, 600watt, Metal Halide 250watt, Fluorescent t8's,and LED.
LED is by far the winner for my size area.
