It might be a little confusing for them...but not in a damaging way. ...Like you might see leaves on the same plant facing 2 different directions (different light sources) ..but it's no big deal. The plant will optimize itself and turn towards the brightest light source.

more light = more bud, as long as it's not F'ing with temps. :) I can't tell from the pic, but if those have those plastic covers over the lights, pop em off.

now my growroom is sporting a whopping total of twenty three 100 watt CFLs.


Those are not 100 watt CFLs, sorry to burst your bubble :P

:confused:I realize that, wasn't trying to fudge my numbers; thanks for clarifying. All CFLs are listed as 23 = 100 @ 1600 lumens; it gets really confusing trying to equate what I'm working with to traditional tried and true MH or HPS systems. Fingers crossed here.:D


That's fine, but most people go by actual watts around here. Saying you have 2300 watts of CFL in your grow room can be misleading to some. :)

Very frosty!!! Can't wait to see them finish, you must be proud!!! :D

Do you have a pet or something? Thought I saw webbing on your bud, but I think it's just hair. I'm just cautious about mites, they can ruin a lot of hard work.

I have pets too, my labs shed like crazy but they're not allowed near my grow because they can carry mites, especially if they've been chasing animals through the brush.

...just a thought :o
