The electronic adjustable Hortilight Ballast is a small, professional ballast that’s incredibly efficient.
Your plants need quite a lot of light, which means your bulbs need enough power to imitate the sun when growing indoors. In order to do this properly, you need to use powerful lighting systems. Your bulbs are in charge of giving your plants light that they can absorb, and a ballast is needed in order to send your bulbs the energy to produce that light.
It’s super easy to set up; it comes with an array of Plug and Play cables. If your reflector doesn’t have this type of connection you’ll need to get an extra cable in order to hook your ballast to the reflector.
When you use a magnetic ballast, the light produced by your bulbs is at an incredibly high frequency and it pulses; your eyes can’t catch this movement, but of you try with your phone you’ll see what we mean. When you use an electronic ballast your plants will receive constant light, which adds up to an extra 30% light absorption. It also uses less electricity, so you can save on your bills – especially when growing under an 18h light schedule.
You can do this with the Hortilight Ballast, with even better results when done right. It’s electronic and adjustable, so you can switch the strength so that your plants get more or less light, depending on the period that they’re in. This can also be helpful to reduce the heat buildup in your growing area.
When germinating, you should set it to the lowest setting, which is 250w. This is enough to produce 500 lumens, covering just about a square meter of plants. They’ll grow well and shouldn’t get too hot – you can also have your lights much closer to them than with a 600w light. They’ll grow a bit slower, which means they shouldn’t shoot up to your lights during the flowering period which tends to happen.
When you flip the lights to 12/12h for the flowering period, you should switch to 400w in order to get them used to the change in light intensity and temperature. This helps it to have a smooth transition over to the full flowering period.
Once it begins to actually grow flowers, flip it to 600w so that it can start properly flowering as strong as possible. Your plants will begin to flower incredibly fast, and they shouldn’t have grown too big which can sometimes happen when you don’t change light strength. Once your plants begin the fattening period, you can switch it to the Super Lumen setting to increase bud density. This set up is perfect for around 9 plants in a square meter.
Towards the end of the process you’ll realize that your new ballast had a lot to do with the end result; switch over to electronic ballasts now and increase your yield.
