    Default 400w vs 600w

    I'm getting the growlab 120 & was wondering what light will produce the best yields. I was thinking the 600 cuz hey more is better right? but I did sum research & found with 2 feet of distance between ur light & the canopy u divide the # of lumens by 4. So if u do the math u come to find out that a 600w hps at 18" away will actually only deliver 300w to ur canopy. While a 400w at 12" away will deliver more than 300w to ur canopy. I also was concerned with cooling the 600 would that be an issue?

    anyone with info on wut I should use?

    For that size a 600w would be good and also always keep the light 2 inch above the top of plants for max use

    Yeah, bigger is better so long as you have room to accomodate plant growth. I'd go with the 600 if you have room.
