question flouro

Discussion in 'Absolute Beginners' started by Locus, Jun 24, 2003.

  1. when ppl say the wattage of a flouro light..do they mean the actual wattage it is or the wattage it would equal lik it says on the package alot..cus i have a 40 watt one that would equal lik 200 somethin watts ya know..
     
  2. There are some very high powered CMFs running around so most likely yes they are telling the truth about the wattage, if they know what there doing.
     
  3. I use 3 compact fluoros _beneath/between_ the plants to suppliment the 175W MH coming from the North and the sunlight from the South. They are only effective as grow lights when they are within a few inches of the plant. Enhance your lighting by making the whole inside of the chamber reflective with flat white paint, or white plastic, even the surfaces below the leaves. Try to avoide deep corners, which trap light. I have striped the reflective liner from dead desk lamps to stand in dark corners, or lie beneath the plants. Any thing to get more light for less money!
