600w hps or not?

Recommended Posts

So I've currently got a 400w dimmable hps with 2 autos under it. They are about 3 weeks into flower so past the stage of bending and spreading out much more.

My grow area is fully open and not in a tent. Current canopy temp is about 28c with humidity about 70%. 3 fans to keep air moving.

I have a light meter which shows OK coverage over the canopy with coverage on the edges a bit lower.

Recently got a 600w hps with batwing reflector. Given my 2 plant grow with canopy size of about 1m x 60cm is it worth putting the 600w hps over the top for better penetration or am I wasting $ on electricity as my plant footprint is not so large?

Cheers, MLG
