would these lights be ok for the time being?
    #544874 - 04/10/11 07:29 AM (5 years, 7 months ago)

ok first off love this site and just now made my account...highfive :smile:. but anyways, ive recently started growing and didnt have money for a full blown light set up (currently between jobs) so i decided to run three 100 watt normal house bulbs putting out 1600 lumens. i only have 2 little guys out of the soil but they seem to be doing well and i have 3 more under the lights also that were planted a little later. i had to grow from seeds cause i know of no one that grows around my area. my main question is how long will this be ok for the two plants that are already up and at'em.

If those are CFL's then you should be sweet for a while man, if they are incandescent then no dice.

LOL thats what propted me to start growing my own 20 years ago....haven't stopped since... dude though if you come into any extra cash pick up a digital switchable 250w MH/HPS light kit, dunno where u live but here you can get one for around $180. You'll get WAY better results, especially during flowering...the CFL's should be ok for vedging..though plant growth would double in vedge under a 250 MH...compared to those CFL's

Good luck on yer grow bro! :smile:

thanx for the warm welcomes and encouragement guys, and actually ive been looking into the mh/hps light kits and there about the same price here. lol im just broke :smile:. i will most likely be getting a 400w kit though because im going to be growing a lot more later on, this is just a preliminary test run.

Welcome to The Growery!

That lighting is enough to get you going, but I would suggest getting more before to long. Want good bud, u gotta invest a lil something.
