On the other hand, they are not as effective as LED lighting, however they cost just one-tenth as much for equivalent systems.
The two primary kinds of HID light used for growing are:
Metal halide (MH), which produce light that is blue-ish white and are normally utilized during vegetative growth.
High pressure sodium (HPS), which produce light that is more on the red-orange end of the spectrum and are utilized throughout the blooming stage.
