Tricherous cacti and HPS anyone tried?
    #1515311 - 05/02/03 05:21 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

welp summer time is here and my cacti are loving it showing new growth by the day its phenomenal. but was just curious in winter months has anyone tried putting these things any bridgesii or peruvianus or pachanoi under hps light? i know hps is pretty intense and isn't too bad for say a 75w to keep the new growth attitude and minimize dormancy during the winter. also has anyone foundout what causes these dormant periods?

I tried this one winter, before the cacti went dormant I brought them into my closet and put them under a 250w HPS untill winter was over, my results were pretty much the same as those of the other posters in this thread.

I would recomend a MH-bulb for maximum growth but a HPS will still give some awsome results.

Still, there will be a short dormant period..

Peace..
