Dual spectrum cfl - pc grow light choices

Discussion in 'Lighting' started by Blooming Idiot, Jul 2, 2012.

  1. Toying with the idea of building a pc stealth box and got a few questions..

    - What are the dual spectrums like compared to separate spectrum bulbs?

    - And, I have thought about a standard 125w cfl bulb but would I get away with a 200w without heat issues? Saying I had an inlet and outlet fan of cause.

    Thanks in advance :)
  2. dual spectrum lights have a more natural look where standard hps has a very yellow light

    cfls produce very little heat even large 100+ watt versions and should be placed very close to plants
  3. 200 watts in a PC grow box is getting slightly high, I would not go above 150-175. With that said get a rubbermaid container; a tower is just a tad too small tbh.
  4. Will stick to the 125 i think. Just bought a huge tower too
