  2. Hey man,

    So for the veg state of the plant, which is the first 4-6 weeks, you will want to get about 2-3 CFLs atleast 100watts and 6700k, or close to that. Later, once you begin flowering, you should switch to 2700k bulbs.
  3. ThAnks man so they sell these at wall mart right?

  4. I would imagine they do. You will see on the CFLs that it says like 26 watts but 100 watt equivalent. People have always told me that you need a real 100 watt bulb and not just an equivalent. But I'm growing right now with those CFLs and everything is perfectly fine. I think what you need to pay more attention to is the amount of lumens the bulbs give off. Don't quote me on this but I think it's like 4,000-5,000 lumens per plant. 3 CFLs should about cover that. Good luck!
  5. If you can have 10 000 lumens / sq ft is a really good average!

  6. just remember, you cant have to many lights ;)
