  1. Hey guys so I'm wanting go use some 200 Watt cfls to help the sides of my plants because its always huge on top but bare sides. I have a 400 Watt hps/mh. I just wanna use this to assist my grow. Here are some pics of what I'm thinking of getting. I don't wanna use T5 because I've read a lot you have to have them like right on the plant.

    The first picture, light on the left looks good for flower(not particularly the 3300k one), but the second pictures kelvin output is a little low for flower and way too low for veg
  3. OK good deal I know its like 2500k veg and 6500 flower right?

    This is incorrect T5's are way better,and more powerful.I use a Tek 4 from HTG for clones.I have 16 1' clones under it right now.Canopy almot a foot away,and no stretching.These fixures can have a regualr max blue spectrum T5 or a HPS T5 in them.If the tek 4 is more then you want to spend the Tek 2 is nice at $69.99.CFL's can do the job,but they arent better IMO,and HTG backs their stuff 3 year warrenty's.

    And I definatly dont work there.I'm just that happy with these T5's.I'm thinking of geting 2 more tek 4's.Putting HPS in them,and hanging on each side in bud room.
