Yes, due to the intense MH light 8-10 hours is plenty. You probably will want a higher kelvin rated bulb i.e. 12k-14K if only going with MH. Checkout this link for color comparisons.


If you haven't figured it out yet I like to BOLD links :P

The MH fixture I'm thinking of buying comes with a choice of 10k and 20k. I'll probably go for the 20k, although it might be a bit on the blue side for my taste
