is this going to help my plant? or is it no good for a young plant?
Okay i took the UV light back after reading some comments on them.. I now have a daylight blue 60watt bulb, a warm white 60w energy saver, and a cool white 60w energy saver.
How's it sound? i know the whites are 1,200 lumens together.
I've read that UV is helpful with THC production.
I think this is the article
oh thanks buddy, plant hasnt grown at all... wondering if i need more lights? :\
only 1,200 lumens all together?
my 26w CFLs are 1,100 each...
what kind of lights are these?
If these bulbs have filaments then they won't work sorry. You need one of two types of lighting.<O</O
HID lighting systems are expensive but put out far more lumens per watt of energy used. These are the best lights to use
High pressure sodium- Expensive but the best all around light; not great in veg but the best in flowering, red spectrum.
MH- A little less expensive then a hps system best lighting for veg state as its high in the blue spectrum.<O</O
Florescent lights don't put out as many lumens as the HID lighting but can be put much much closer to the plant(only a couple inches away). For veg you will want cool white lights and for flowering you will want warm lights. Cool white has more of a blue spectrum and warm has a red.<O
Floro tubes- Cheap but your going to need alot more of these to get the job done.<O
Compact florescent(the swirly lights)- Cheap and your gona need a lot<O
Watch out with UV lights people.
Those that are made to brown your skin will damage your plant's leaves beyond repair easy!
just purchased a 23 watt CFL which is equal to 125 watt incandecent + a 48 watt CFL which is equal to 240 watt incandecent.. + my old 11 watt CFL which is equal to 60 watt incandecent...
Reckon i got enough?
