Poor Lighting, Will they work?

  1. Hi,

    I have a 15 watt Gro-Lux fluro, and two 20 watt screw-in fluros. I think it is equivelant to 260 watts of standard incandescent light bulbs, and I am growing in a small area (1'5" x 1'5"). There are two plants, and I have put the 15 watt light 2' above both the plants, and two 20 watt fluros 1' above each of the plants. To my naked eye it looks like there is plenty of light (infact, it kind of hurts my eyes to look at the bulbs). Either way, I want to know if my plants will grow (I don't want them to grow immensly fast, I would just like to know if they are actually going to grow.)

  2. you basicly have 130w of fluro in a little over 1sqft.
    mylar the walls and replace the growlux with a warm white tube of the same size/watt when flowering.
