Hybrid lighting systems, consisting of High Pressure Sodium (HPS) and full spectrum Light Emitting Diode (LED) grow lights, can be used together to grow and flower plants – outperforming HPS-only lighting systems. You absolutely can blend the light of an LED with that of an HPS And you will get better/different results. Anyone with extensive knowledge able to weigh in please? i have been told that using mh(400) and one hps(400) would be better for flowering than 2 hps(400's) but the more I read I think all hps might be best. If growing in coco my fav products are GH, although I just imported some Green Planet , Haven't run it yet. I have blended them, hps/led, cmh/led and a variety of other blends. They are the construction type with ballast in box above lamp. I'm also running a combo of LED and CMH. 315watt CMH is equal to about a 600watt HPS and they create far less heat I'm trying to keep it simple but yeah i'm a sucker and was sucked into the bottled nutrient game.
