i dont see why you cant. the plants will only benefit from the huge spectrum of color. and the nice thing about HPS is that they emit a nice amount of UVA, UVB, and IR.

Ideally if an LED can produce all the same spectrums then the LED would be all you need, BUT, HPS is still a very very dominant player in cannabis growing so combing both would certainly not hurt using a smaller LED as supportive lighting. Just make sure your PAR is set correctly on both the LED and those HPS :)

Hello TRJ -
Cody's LED data has convinced me too and I am converting to LEDs having grown with HPS for too many years. Loved hearing your utilities were cut in half! 👍That's what I want also.
Thanks for sharing! ☮️

Yes you can use them both as others have stated.With all the light you have I'd say you could cut some out and still get the coverage you need in ur 6x6 to grow your meds. (save on electric).
You could dim your HPS down to 600 watt or even remove one and just use the LED and 1 HPS @ 1000 watts. IMO.

Hell bud it seems you have the room and tent space to do a split test. put up a divider and put 1-HPS on one side and your LED's on the other and compare G/W, electric use,etc. and stick with what is best for you :) '

That is my buzzed 2 cents lol.

I have a 6x8 and I have a king plus 1000 & 600 watt also 2 cheap Chinese led's that are 1200 watts each and a 1000 Watt hps I was thinking of kicking on. What do you thnlink good or bad idea? Yes I eventually want all led but unless somebody wants to trade me an led for my hps or buy it I might as well use it lol. Thanks for the help
