With so many metal halide lamps available for growing plants, it’s hard to pick a winner. It’s more a matter of choice in most cases, dependent on your application, goals and budget.  So, in this respect, there is a metal halide bulb for everyone.

Metal halide lamps will produce different results based on a mixture of their colour temperature, the bulb design (light distribution) and the intensity of light they produce.

This post will serve to provide a good benchmark metal halide grow lamp for which you can either run as an excellent choice on it’s own, or use it to compare with new metal halide lamps you may want to experiment with.

This lamp is the Sunmaster Metal Halide – which, in our opinion, is one of the best metal halide grow lamps you can buy.

The Sunmaster Metal Halide is an affordable yet high performance grow light bulb that comes in both a 4000K and 7200K option. The higher the Kelvin rating, which is a measure for blue light, the healthier your plants will be in the long run, producing more vigorous plant growth and better harvests too.

So, if you are looking for the best metal halide grow lamp available, the Sunmaster Metal Halide from Venture Lighting comes highly recommended.


At Chilli Willy, we stock the Sunmaster Cool Deluxe Metal Halide range, which is favoured by many growers because of its balanced light output at 6000 Kelvin, containing lots of blue light to keep your plants healthy and producing great harvests.
