  4. 25w is not enough.
     
  5. If it were a true 125w CFL it would work okay. I'm going to try somthing different with my mother plants. Instead of having light come from above, I'm going to surround them with flourecents to make them grow outward more.
     
  6. Yea...like atleast 4-5 of those would work..:rolleyes:
     
  7. How much light ,watts, or lumes is neeeded for just one plant is in a space of 2'x2' surrounded with black and white the plastic sheeting.



    all help much appreciatated
    cheers :confused:
     
  8. A 125 would do it.
     
  9. my head was wreacked with all the lumes per wattage x hight x width stuff.


    maybe it was the weed that done it :smoking:



    cheers
     
  10. 100W is a safe bet for one plant. 4-5 23W or 26W CFLs would be good.
