No, you don't have to convert for both cycles. I do all my vegging under cfls and t5s, all my flowering under a 1k hps, which, yes, is still the best way to go, but doesn't sound like it's an option for Sal.

And sickle is totally right, no sativas under low light, keep to indica for sure.

I normally use a T5 to flower when I make seed. yes the buds are smaller, although I don't find that I really lose density 'cause I can keep the low wattage lights super close to the plants.

I've never taken a look at any conversion rates or anything, I just always make sure I have proper lumens per sqft (3000 in veg, 5000 in flower at minimum). I think we're getting near the time here, especially with the onset of all the amazing LED growing going on right now, (seeing awesome yields and tokes coming from some of these LED growers, and they're saving like 40%+ on their electric bills) where wattage per sqft isn't going to be factor anymore unless you're running hps.

All I can add is although electricity is cheaper at night this only applies if you have two meters , one for the day and the other for night. If you only have one you pay a flat rate. Good luck

and get arrested for stealing electricity on top of your grow operation.

stealing electricity is the stupidest suggestion you could possibly ever make to anyone growing cannabis

Hey Sal,

Ok, so the price of bud is so high it negates any electricity costs.

If I lived where you do then I would be using all available resources, I would have a weekend in "The Alagarve" and make some contacts, mainly alburferra. We had to do drives to spain if we wanted a smoke, again alot harder to get bud in spain as it';s mostly hash.
