Flouro bulb question

  1. Hey guys, im thinking about a small scale grow, just for personal use and i have a flouro light base that hangs from the ceiling that accommodates (2) of the 4' tubes. Im just wondering which bulbs i can get for this that will supply adequate light for my plants. :confused:
  2. you may want some more. i like 4 footers cause they are more efficient than the shorter ones. here you can buy both 2700K and 6500K that are 93L/W, which is better than the 24" which are 81L/W tops here.

    2 tubes will grow the plants, but you wont get any good results. get some CFLS to go with them and you should be good :) you can normally find larger 65+ watt cfl at hardware stores. pop a couple of them over your plant.

    i am currently doing a grow with all fluoro using cfl and some tubes, you can find it in the grow log section named Vancouver outdoor mix indoors, there you can see what lights i am using....not that i know much about fluoro growing, but we shall see :)
  3. thanks for the info bro, it is much appreciated.
