New Cfl lights. Questions on them.
    #430022 - 06/08/10 10:10 PM (6 years, 5 months ago)

Ok so I have 5 cfl lights I got them all free and I would like to know If this would be a good setup for a 2-3 plant grow? You think I should use a mixed spectrum or no?

Ok so Here are the lights I have.


The three in the middle are Bright effects 15 watt 6500k. And the bigger ones are TCP 23 watt equivalent to I forgot but I don't think that matters.

But could I use all these And have a decent grow?

Maybe one plant you would do ok. But 3 is pushing it too far and by the time they start to bud there would be so many leaves shading both plants they wouldn't do well. I would stick with one or two plants and train the hell out of them to stay low and stretch out flat.

I used about 4 23watts and 2 15watts for 4 plants in a 20x20in box, they grew to be about a foot and a half total and came out with popcorn buds but were still smokeable. So I would say go for it.

Also I am only pushing 46 watts with the 2 23 watt cfl 2700k lights right? It said something about equivalent watts but didn't pay attention.

Equivalent watts mean nothing and yes 2 plants would probably do OK.

Nothing compared to HID though, you'll get there if you are committed though...

CFL's are a gateway drug. Don't say I didn't warn you. :smirk:

23 watt replaces 100watt, but like said early it doesnt matter what replaces it, 2 plants will do just fine if you train them, i've seen it in a pc grow and they used two 23watt 6500k and two 23watt 2700k cfl's, good luck
