They cost a bit more than incandescent or fluorescent fixtures, but produce even more light per unit of electricity used. On the other hand, they are not as efficient as LED lighting, but they cost just one-tenth as much for equivalent systems.
The two main kinds of HID lamp used for growing are:
Metal halide (MH), which produce light that is blue-ish white and are usually used throughout vegetative growth.
High pressure salt (HPS), which produce light that is more on the red-orange end of the spectrum and are used during the flowering stage.
In addition to bulbs, HID lighting setups require a ballast and hood/reflector for each light. Some ballasts are designed for usage with either MH or HPS lamps, while numerous more recent styles will run both.
If you can’t afford both MH and HPS bulbs, begin with HPS as they provide more light per watt. Magnetic ballasts are more affordable than digital ballasts, however run hotter, are less effective, and harder on your bulbs.
