Bulbs HPS and MH
HPS and MH bulbs:
Two kinds of bulb are now available for growers. The HPS and the MH are studied to a horticultural lighting.
The HPS (High Pressure Sodium) bulbs and the MH (Halid Metal) Bulbs are used for the indoor plant culture of any kind, particularly for the cannabis growing. The HPS (or SHP) bulbs emit an orange light. This spectrum is better adapted to the flowering period, although these bulbs are also used during the growth period such as the Sylvania Grolux mixte or the Philips Son-T Agro.
The MH (Metal Halid lamps) produces a blue light that favours the plant growth period. The MH 400W bulbs can be used with 600W ballasts.
You will also find the HPÏT bulb of Philips, which guarantees an optimal growth. For the bloom, we have the SON-T pia+ and the SON-T pia+ Green Power that will guarantee a high-yielding production.
