Light Color Question
    #524113 - 02/06/11 09:01 PM (5 years, 9 months ago)

So me and my buddies started another small CFL grow, and right now we have close to 150 watts. I was looking to beef up the watts in there and found a 65 watt 4100K CFL for a decent price and was wondering if this spectrum is good for flowering because I know 2700K is ideal. But by getting that 65 watt 4100K I would be mixing the lighting with 2 55 watt 2700K bulbs. Just wondering what you guys think and thanks for the help.

I generally have read that at least 100 watts per plant is the general rule. So as long you've got that covered. With the right spectrum throughout the phases you should be alright.

It might not be an ideal kelvin, but the lamp you are asking about would be helpful as long as you can manage the extra heat.

I am not a cannabis grower.  I find the cannabis growers to be the most open to experimenting and sharing out of all of the different botany groups I enjoy.  I frequently use the suggestions that I find to apply to own organic gardening and food production.
