Science behind the product
A metal-halide lamp is an electrical lamp that produces light by an electric arc through a gaseous mixture of vaporized mercury and metal halides salts.
Metal halide lamps are designed to mimic the amount of blue light that plants would usually get from the spring and summer sun, and they can be used during the vegetative and the flowering stages of your plants’ life cycle.

*** Metal Halide lamps can cause serious skin burns and eye inflammation from shortwave ultraviolet radiation if outer envelope of the lamp is broken or punctured. Do not use where people will remain more than a few minutes unless adequate shielding or other safety precautions are used. There are lamps that will automatically extinguish when the outer envelope is broken but these lamps do not self-extinguish. This is why they are only to be used with enclosed luminaries.
