NEW! Gavita pro 600w kit with lamp

Gavita pro 600w comes with ballast reflector and lamp, this is a new and improved model from gavita, gavita stand at the top end of the market producing some of the best products in lighting today, definately worth considering if you take your hobby seriously!

The GAVITA Pro 600 is the first 240 Volt electronic ballast that powers the professional Philips GreenPower 600W 400V EL (electronic) lamp. This lamp has the highest PAR light output, improved spectrum and the best light maintenance (>95% PAR light over one year of use). Being the most efficient horticultural lamp available and the only lamp specifically developed for electronic ballasts this is the lamp of choice for Dutch professional greenhouse growers.

The GAVITA Pro 600 is available as a complete fixture with the highly efficient professional HortiStar HR 96 reflector or as a remote ballast, ideally paired with the adjustable GAVITA TripleStar reflector. Being completely closed and solid state (no fans) with extremely low heat dissipation the remote ballast can be mounted close to your lamps, enabling safe and easy installation. Having your ballast close to your lamp reduces the amount of EMI (RF interference). The complete fixture is easily mounted with two balanced eye bolts. Special brackets are available as an accessory.

A Great introduction to hydroponics with out the overly technical terms, covers lighting to feeding, we recommend this book!

This book covers all aspects of hydroponics, it is very informative, yet an easy read. “A must read for the novice gardener” as the book states, yet would also be enlightening for the more experienced grower.
