cheers for the request bro. Going to be installing a 250w hps soon, was contemplating whether to get 250w of cfl or buy a 250w hps. Growing with a cfl, i'd conclude that it good and will be enough to flower, however i don't think it can penetrate below the canopy, as the main branches bud sites are beneath there. So I'd hope the 250w hps, that ill be installing be enough to penetrate through it. Hope to veg and flower with the hps. If i veg with the hps, im going to use the cfl i have.
