High watt CFLs
    #611589 - 03/05/12 03:07 AM (4 years, 9 months ago)

Just wanted some opinions on the high wattage cfls for vegging.  Heres what I had in mind.  http://www.amazon.com/Hydrofarm-FLCDG125D-125-Watt-Compact-Fluorescent/dp/B001UV6P9I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1330063141&sr=8-1

Hmmm they don't even tell the spectrum and the lumen :shrug:
Guess you just don't wanna buy HPS, ballast, ventilator and carbon filter, hum? :wink:

A small watt HPS would do you a whole lot better.  Even a little 100 watt or 250 watt.

I ordered the same one and am using it to veg a second time.  It works suprisingly well.  I use it to veg 4 at a time,  small bubblers in a small cabinet.  Growth rates in veg seem good n fast.  Good luck :smile:

I like it, but for the money I'd want a metal halide blue spectrum bulb.  If I only had a HPS ballast, I'd want a conversion bulb solely for the blue spectrum.:stoned:

Meh, I run HPS all the way through.  No real need to switch back and forth, they're gonna stretch when ya flip the lights to 12/12 anyways.
