Autoflowering CFL light question.

Discussion in 'First Time Marijuana Growers' started by neMMMM, Apr 2, 2009.

  1. I did a search, and found some results. In the threads i read, people said you can just keep the flowering lights on it the whole time even throughout veg. The thing is, there was only one person that kept saying this throughout the threads. I wanted to just make sure this person is right.

    Here are my plans in case that makes a diff.

    -going to put a grow tent in my closet, the tent will be 2' x 4' x 5'. I plan to do 1-2 plants in there...possibly 3 the second time around depending on strain/size.
    -Starting out i will be using bag seed, so i will have my CFL lights 6500 as well as ones for flowering.

    My question is - after i complete my bag seed grow and plan to get auto flowering seeds, what kind of lights will i need to use? i ask this so i dont have to buy certain products twice, and if i can, just incorporate the costs into one that i can use for both.

    The reason i am not using HPS is because of heat. I plan to use a 6'' exhaust fan with a carbon scrubber, and a normal fan in the tent.

    Sorry if this is kind of confusing....as i am a little confused myself. Take it easy.

  5. hey bud
    the autoflowering strains do best on a 20/4 light schedule in a 7 litre pot

    them are the lights you will need man
    either order them their or go to ur local wal-mart I found a pack of 2 2700k 100w equivilancy for like 4.87$
    and them 2 lights would grow 3 plants with just them 2.. altho i suggest more
    100w=per plant and 50= per extra plant
    so 2 100w lights =200w so 3 plants.. but id get like 3-4 honestly.. i plan on growing 3 plants using 6 bulbs so.
