Lighting sufficient ?

  1. Hello all,
    I am currently running two 48inch GE ecolux tubes that produce 40 watts/tube and 3050 lumens/tube. I am currently growing 3 three plants in 3.5" pots and i was just wondering if this lighting will suffice?
    thanks~ :smoking:
     
  2. Nope, that's not enough...not even close bro. Go with the 100w CFLs, maybe 2-3 per plant.
     
  3. where can i find those at?
     
  4. Walmart...Home Depot...WaWa...7-11...and the list continues.

    I say goto Walmart and buy "daylight GE" I think its 26w, buy a 3-4 per plant is my opinion. Even you plan on starting and finishing with CFL's you are going to need a ton of light. I think a reflector up top along with a few more around the sides. One of the CFL nerds already proved multiple lower watts bulbs produce more lumens than then the more expensive large watt CFLS. I got a cheap reflector that may inspire you to build something in my SIG.
