Why digital lighting? The Sun is high frequency. In order to make artificial light behave more like natural Sunlight it needs to be high frequency. Digital lighting makes for a higher quality of light that's good for all living things. This is only possible if you have the proper lamp and ballast combination.
The 6K Metal Halide is popularly used for vegetative growth to encourage shorter node spacing and bushier plants, which in return will give you bigger, denser, buds and a larger harvest!
Specifically designed for high frequency electronic ballasts, it has a connection at each side of the lamp, removing the need for a frame wire inside the lamp. The absence of a frame wire eliminates any shadows in the beam. All Solis Tek Double Ended (DE) 1000w bulbs should be used with high frequency ballasts optimized for DE bulbs.

Solis Tek Metal Halide Double Ended Bulb, 1,000 Watts - 6,000 K Questions & Answers
What's that gunk inside my lamp?
Have you ever opened a brand new box and wondered what the stuff was inside the lamps? Well you’re not alone, we get a lot of concerned customers thinking something might be wrong. The materials (gunk/goop) inside the inner envelope are actually the salts that comprise the gas chemistry provided by APL. When electricity flows through the arc tube, the excited salts give off their specific spectrum.
These salts will burn off after a seasoning/break in period of ~100 hours. After this point your lamp will be operating at it's optimal spectrum. A slight amount of pulsating in the lamp is common until the lamp is fully seasoned. Solis-Tek is the only company that does not pre-burn in their lamps. This way you can truly tell you have a brand new lamp. It also provides you more operation lamp life!

- Love the new DE technology
- I switched over to using DE from my old traditional set-up and have seen a huge difference in both veg and flower. This 6k lamp had done wonders in veg for me and will continue to veg under mh's going forward. Have been thinking about adding in the 10k bcuz I have heard of my buddies plants getting super resinated at the end. Thank you hydrobuilder for recommending this to me!
