If you're making a closet for starting small plants, 1 or 2 square metres should be fine.

A 150w HPS is not the best choice if you're building an area to start seedlings or clones. You'll get better light from fluorescent tubes - maybe 3 or 4 120cm (36w) tubes or a single 125w CF light.

A 400w HPS is a good choice for flowering. You can illuminate 100x120cm of good growing area with these lamps.

A 600w will get you closer to maximum yields, but you may need a bigger space to accommodate the heat it creates.
