CFL Grow Lights

  1. Hey, first timer budget grower here. I've read that to start out in the veg stage to use 42w (150W equiv) 6500k CFL lights. VERY HARD TO FIND in my area. The closest I came was 23w (100w equiv) 6500k CFL. Can I get by with that if I use two per plant to start out? Only want to grow a couple plants. I'm not a fan of ordering bulbs online.

    Thanks All!
  2. BTW, 42w (150 equiv) 2700k CFLs are easy to get my hands on (for the flower stage) but could i use those all the way through? Best to vary the light spectrum I suppose.
  3. "not a fan of ordering bulbs online"

    What? Why? There's thousands of online stores that sell light bulbs that are completely unaffiliated with what you want to use it for.
