Lighting question

Discussion in 'Growing Marijuana Indoors' started by stayhigh42012, Aug 16, 2019.

  1. I’ve got two Northern Lights Auto seeds I germinated, planted and are 5 days old. My 400 watt hps quit on me. Will two shop lights with new bulbs work for the first 2 weeks or so until I can get the hps going again? It’s about 160 watts total of fluorescent lighting.

  3. Yes. They will probably even do better becasue they are so young, they dont need such intense light just yet.

  4. i use cfl for the first two weeks of growth myself. but you can tell a big difference in growth once i put them under the HPS lights.

  5. also if you are on a budget, check around for used equip on ebay and craigslist. with everyone switching to LED, used HID lights can be found cheap!
