    Flowering with MH?

    With the hot summer months approaching, I decided to flower both of my tents and start a new crop late fall ish. It'll be easier than trying to deal with the heat. So my question is, can I use my 600W Metal Halide bulb to flower in the 1 tent? Or will I need to go buy an HPS? I know it's not ideal, but does it affect the plants that much? I can live with a slightly smaller, or slightly lesser quality of a yield, I just don't want to be disappointed when it's time to crop.
    I used to do drugs... I still do, but I used to too!

    Pot is a plant, it grows in the ground.
    If god didn't want it, it wouldn't be around.
    So all you mother fuckers who haven't got high,
    shut the fuck up, and give it a try!

    HPS will bring in a larger yield. Bud quality is better with both going at the same time.
    In the cave man growing era, mh was the only option for flower and veg. This was when 1lb per 1000w light was considered high yielding.
    4x4 600w HID empty for summer
    3x3 400w HID with Bruce Banner and Skywalker Kush
    2x2 65w Quantum Board LED with 4 mother strains
    running all simultaneously for a perpetual harvests.

      Go with eye hortilux for HPS. You won’t be dissatisfied.

      Thank you kindly sir I don't remember what brand I have in my usual budding tent. But I just finished up 2 plants that were a bit under a foot and a half each. After drying and everything I got 4.5 ounces.
