Veg Lighting?

  1. Hey all,

    Going to be starting my first grow soon and am looking for some help with the decision on veg lighting. At first I was thinking T5's, but I have a buddy who uses these for veg and his plants always seem rather.. tall (lanky). I have my eye on CMH's for veg, but I'm not sure where the technology is at with these.

    The room would be about 6.5 feet by 11 feet, and would house 24 plants from clone/seed to the day they get taken away to the flower room (probably around 6 weeks veg time). My biggest concern is height. My grow space will be just under 7 feet, so I wouldn't want lighting that is insufficient/encourages stretching. I'm open to all suggestions. Thanks for any responses guys.
     
  2. Don't rule out LED arrays in your decision process-help enhance many desirable traits and conserve energy ;)
     
  3. Best veg I ever got was w/ this T-5 spectrum. Unbelievable. 3-5x better plants & roots then my Ushio 600 MH.
    It's all about the spectrum w/ your veg light. image.jpg
