Thanks a lot, does a hps bulb take a plant all the way through the plants cycle? So I wont have to switch bulbshttp://www.1000bulbs.com/product/89339/SUN-900490.html?utm_source=SmartFeedGoogleBase&utm_medium=Shopping&utm_term=SUN-900490&utm_content=Sunlight+Supply+All+In+One+System&utm_campaign=SmartFeedGoogleBaseShopping&gclid=CKu02q6o6rwCFaE7Ogod2RgACw
150w hps for $70 but I would keep the CFL's with this for side lighting. a 150 isn't all that powerful.
other than that you'll need more than 5 cfls for a full grow. even with autos. I've seen people having upwards of 600w of CFL's in a closet. that's actual watts, not equivalent.
You can never ever have too much cfl's on your grow, no mater the size...I was wondering if 5 cfls that are 23 watts each and different kelvins and a fluorescent 20 watt is enough to grow an auto or 2?
Thanks a lot what do you grow with?You can never ever have too much cfl's on your grow, no mater the size...
You got a 3 x 3 box put in as many CFL's as possible...if 50 will fit and not over heat your tent... put 50 in it...
Too many CFL's on a MJ plant... is an Oxymoron....
Thanks how big of a hps do you use an with how many plants?I veg and flower under hps..mainly for simplicity and the bulb lasts twice as long while seeming to produce less heat (bout 10° cooler out the tube, 600 watt cool tubes) and more lumens
Cfl/mh produces slightly better bud
Sounds expensive lol how far should cfls be away from my seedlings that are only 23 watts an how far should a 150 hps be away?....well figure I'll respond too
I have Apollo 600 watt cool tubes...I also keep my original cfl cab around. Its about 750 actual watts in a 20x24" stacked rubbermaid tote
I run sog..depends on genetics/how bushy they grow vs totem poles..generally 12-15 per light, gallon pots. Cool tubes are in an "open grow" style
