    Why are you using incandescent bulbs? They are horrible for growing.
     
    To answer your question, your fixture can safety dissipate heat from 7W bulbs or less. Sticking a 75W bulb in there will cook the fixture and melt the wiring (Rubber insulator), hence fire risk.
     
  4. No....FIRE RISK=Going to prison risk! Use your head. If you're gonna go cheap, you might as well not go! CFL's are cheap enough, and so are light bases and wiring. There is a fine line between cheap and stupid. Don't cross that line or Karma will fuck you up!
