What kind of light should I buy for 2 plants with my next paycheck?

  1. I get paid next week, and I'm wondering what kind of light(s) would be best to buy...I have 2 main plants right now, and am using a combo of daylight in the day and 60w CFL's at night.

    Suggestions? CFL? I can't really afford an HID, and my closet can't get THAT hot!

  2. LED? I like LED...:smoke:
  3. i went to the local hydro store couple days ago LED is expensive and the guy compared LED vs CFL vs HID vs MH . LED tends to grow smaller buds than the rest, of course they didn't have a marijuana plant growing but they had a pepper plant LED didn't seem to get the job done like the others..

    If you buy cheap ass LED's you will get horrible yields. If you invest in GOOD LED's you will get a very nice yield... I'm eventually switching over from 1,000w HPS to 740 watts of pure LED from a good LED company.

  5. The two LED companys I personally trust are Lighthouse Hydroponics (Blackstar LED) or Advanced LED. :smoke:

    So LED is better than CFL? Because I'm kind of into the CFL's. They work for my current situation.
