cfls and ballasts

  1. hey guys,

    i've got a pretty descent 250w mh/hps setup going, but i'm looking to add some cfls soon to boost my space.

    my question is this: i've seen a lot of growers use one of those bulb multipliers, where they can hook up like 3-5 bulbs in one spot. these are cool, but do i need a ballast for one of these?

    I'm thinking I'd like to have about 3-5 30-50ish watt cfls hooked up in one of these.

    thanks in advance
  2. No. I'm going to do the same when I'm flowering with my 250w. Going to add 5-6 23w CFL on a powerbar
  3. i'm thinkin' i might just add a 400w setup
  4. so, in other words, you can have 300 watts of cfls essentially in the same plug without a ballast?
  5. the white housing that separates the bulb from the screw is a ballast because its a discharge bulb it needs a ballast
  6. add a 400w setup you are going there anyways lol
