Lighting for clones

Discussion in 'First Time Marijuana Growers' started by jasem, Jun 5, 2019.

  1. I dont dont access to T5 or sophisticated lights that r designed for cloning.
    I have read online that I can use regular cfl lights for clones.
    I have this;
    On the lamp it says 60 watts- warm light. Is this good? Is it enough for like 10 clones? Should I buy one with higher or lower wattage than this?
    Also, is 18-6 schedule absolutely necessary for clones? I have read that 24/7 lighting would make them not root.

  2. I clone under 24-0 and have for years so that is bull shit.
    I clone under 4 25 watt daylight CFLs so that is enough for the job.
    Domes off for the picture.
