equivalent wattage vs real wattage

Discussion in 'Grow Room Design/Setup' started by bpo, Aug 28, 2007.

  1. Is the 23 watt equivalent to 100 watt CFL's, even though they are not 'actually' 100 watt would that be good for growing? do they plants know the difference between the two??
  2. im using 4 of those in the warmest spectrum i could find

    they are very good from what ive read

    but its best to have 2 100w equvliant bulbs per plant

  3. ok you say 'warmest spectrum' im guessing this is red, and the cooler is blue..? which lights are u using exactly, im interested in picking some up. thanks for answering all my answers bubonic
  4. i got them at home depot

    yeah warmest means redish

    its really used for flowering but im flowering from seed to harvest

    energy star, N:vision is the brand

    they were like $5 each
