Bring the growing power of the sun indoors with BLUE metal halide bulbs.
The powerful spectrum of HORTILUX® BLUE is now available in a 600 watt version. This industry-leading, breakthrough bulb can change the way you grow.
Our 600W BLUE is a metal halide lamp designed to operate on 600W electronic ballasts or Core and Coil (magnetic) HPS ballasts rated ANSI S106. All 600 Watt Core and Coil (magnetic) ballasts are HPS rated, which means our 600W BLUE is a conversion lamp on this system.
Please note that there is no 600W Metal Halide Core and Coil ballast. They do not exist in the general lighting industry. That is why all 600W Metal Halide lamps are conversion lamps designed to run on HPS Core and Coil ballasts to give you the greatest flexibility.
This lamp can be used in the following ways:
Start with BLUE finish with SUPER HPS: Prefer to use metal halide for early plant development and then switch to high pressure sodium for flowering and fruit production? That method works great with these bulbs.
600W BLUE encourages aggressive vegetative growth using your existing HPS system. Simply switch back to your 600W HPS lamp for flowering and fruit production.
