  1. i have a 100watt day light florescent light bulb...one per plant. Light output is 1300 lumens. Is this a good light for vegatative and flowering? and how far above the plants should they be?

    thanks guys
  2. i'm no expert but 1600 lumens sounds very little for a 100W. Probably the actuall W is 16 or something and your talking about the incandescent equiv.
    Rule of thumb sais 10k lumens per plant. So like me, you are gonna need to add much more light.

    I have 2 30W CFLs and its not even close to enough
