  1. i have never grown weed before, always wanted to. I finnaly got off probation so i finnaly decided to try i have a realy tight budget and was just wondering if i could use a 13 watt (equivilent to a 60 watt) 6500K daylight flourescent light to start growing one plant, and if not how many of them would i need?

    any help is appreciated thank you for taking the time and reading.
  2. look at the "CFL lighting?" thread just below this one.
  3. as hollywood was insinuating, the search button is a fantastic resource. but to answer your question, a 13w bulb will get you no where. you'll need about 10 of those to get through a decent veg cycle, at which time you'll need some different bulbs (2700k rating) for flowering. a typical estimate is 100-200 watts of light per plant if you want to take it to harvest.
