Mixed spectrum for veg
    #387681 - 03/21/10 01:22 PM (6 years, 8 months ago)

What are your guys' opinions on a 125w CFL that puts out 50/50 2700K/6400K for vegging?

Well I'm not sure about those specific bulbs.  But when using HID lighting it's recommended to mix in 1 MH per 3-4 HPS.  So if your going to go with this route I would go for separate bulbs since I have no experience, nor have I heard of the bulbs your talking about.

Hawk are you saying use a mix of different spectrum bulbs instead of one single bulb that offers a broad spectrum range?

That is what I'm saying.  I'm running 3 1000 watt lights.  2 of them are HPS the 3rd is MH.

But this is your flowering setup, correct? I'm thinking here in terms of vegging, particularly starting seedlings.

Ahh, sorry.  I didn't catch that part.  I would just go for vegging spectrum solely.
