Well seing as I have never worked with anything but 400 watt and 430 watt HID'S,have a C13 and you my friend had a 250 in one I have a few good questions for you.
Would the 250 be a good option in a dual stage (perpetual ie;flower and veg sections) C13?
I know that it could be pulled off with a 400 watt HID in a cool tube and some serious climate control although that is more power than I would wish to pay for
On average how dense of buds does a 250 watt HID produce if used in a small SOG or small in general garden (small as in plants no taller than a foot to a foot and a half max)?
I know the 400's give good results and even better when growing a 100% indica,just wondering how a 250 would yeild in my "planned" setup.
I was hoping to get a 250/270 watt HPS in a store bought 6" kool tube (MD Hydro has the best deal) and for the first grow connect a 6" x4" reducer on the cool tube so I can continue using my 4" 170 cfm inline (plan on upgrading to a 449cfm 6" vortex with ss speed controller).
The Veg/clone section ould be lit by either Four 27 watt CFL's or four 2' dual bulb fluoro fixtures and be vented by means of active exhuast (small axial fans) and passive intakes.
I hope to make the flower section at the top and make it about 3.5'-4' tall and the veg section at the bottom about 2'-2.5' tall.
Do you think the veg section would have enough room for say 6-10 clones,6 veging plants (1 week max) and a small bonsai mother?
Thanks for any help you could provide sumo,and great to see yet another fellow OG'er here at IC.
