On A Tight Budget? The iPower 600 Watt Digital Dimmable HPS MH Grow Light System Is For You!
You get rope ratchet hangers and a 19 inch wing reflector. I have used these reflectors and they may not look like much but believe me they really put out some serious light. Plus they are very light weight and easy to hang in a grow tent or closet grow.
This is a great way to go if you are starting out. LED lighting is really expensive and trying to grow with CFLs is a joke if you want good yields. All you need to add is an inexpensive timer when you are ready to flower. This set up will work great in a 3 x 3 grow tent or closet grow.
