    Nope you need a ballast and a ignitor specific for the metal halide bulbs.

    Correct - placing a MH lamp in a halogen lamp will probably cause the lamp to explode, and it won't light.

    Ruan, what MH are you looking for, I have a 150 MH / 2 x T5 pendant that I no longer use. If you are interested I can post some more info and pics.
