Starting On a Budget

  1. Hey guys, I apologize if this has been asked before but I'm trying to start a decent grow (12-15 total plants) on a budget. I was wondering if florescents would work for my veg room instead of HID lights so I could spend my money on HID's for the flowering room. I don't have the cash to fork out for multiple HID setups right away. If some florescents would work for vegging, how many of what size would I need to have 5-7 plants vegging at any given time? Thanks in advance for the help.
     
  2. I'd start with a 4ft T5...at least a 4 bulb one. Mine was about $165, bulbs and all. When your plants start to outgrow that, buy a second. They work great for veg. I have pics in my outdoor grow log of my plants vegging under one before I put them out in may.
     
  3. A bank of T5s on top would work well and are inexpensive plus last quite a long time.

    Fluorescent Grow Lights.

    Alot veg in T5 then migrate to HPS.
