Hello Cannabis Growers, I Just Purchased a new 100watt HPS to use in flowering my already 5 week old plants, I only have 2 of them so i was wondering if this light would be sufficiant being used with several other Flourecent lights i used for Veg.

Also i would like to know just how great a risk of fire there is when using outdoor fixtures in my garden? I dont have much experience with HID but a friend of mine who happens to be an electrician wired it for me and assures me proper gauge of wire was used and it is safe...

LEGALIZE IT.

I hope you trust in your friends ability to wire HID's, Fire is a big risk - Make sure its properly done.

Since this light is not a powerfull as some other lights on the market you can grow with them sufficiently - however since the current is lower the efficiency is also lower - but on the up-side you won't need a contactor to switch your timer

My friend does commercial and residential electrical work so i am not too worried about it just wanted to know the risk or if anyone had experienced a fire using HID lighting, But im not sure exactly what you meant when responding to my first question. Do i have enough light to produce decent buds on my plants? Im growing in a small closet space with plenty of relfective surfaces...
