Has anyone used Full Spectrum Photo Lighting?

  1. So, I'm a novice with little growing experience. I have a grow area set up in my garage and have a few plants in mid-term.

    I don't have much money to invest in lighting, and am currently using full spectrum flourescents and supplimenting with incendescent floods. It's giving the plants some warmth and light.

    Recently, I have read about full spectrum photo bulbs, as pictured below.

    I've heard a lot of good things about them, but are they good for growing?
  2. Im pretty sure it will work but there kinda expensive for a CFL. Go to home depot or a 99 cent store and get some CFL's they will work just as good. Also get rid of the incandescent bulbs, your cfls should produce enough heat and incandescent will just waste energy. The cfl's should be 2-3 inches from the top of your canopy.
  3. Dual spectrums work fine, but I'd advise on getting a 125+ watt one.
