  1. Ok so I have 1 x 2700k 130w cfl and 3 x 5000k 20w cfls.

    The 3 cfls have a retarded holster I made so I'm wondering what would be negative about veg with the 130w 2700k cfl also I can get it closer to the plants
  2. How old is your plant?
    The 5000k are better for veg and the 2700k is better for flowering.
    CFLs put off low heat so they can be kept with 1 - 2" of the plant.

    Im not sure what you mean by a 130watt CFL?
    I have a 68watt 300watt equivalent but 130watt seems REALLY BIG, but a 130watts would be better than 60watts.

    The 5000k will keep the nodes short and the 2700k the plants will stretch for the light.
  3. I looked at your grow and since your in the seedling stage it is recommended to use the 5000k CFLs to keep the nodes close but I on the other hand like using 2700k for my seedlings then swapping them to my 400watt MH for veg
  4. Thanks man but it is a 130w cfl its about 14" long. I wasn't expecting it to be that big... Also I got new seedlings. The lowryder is outside now.
