Need help picking CFL
    #641820 - 10/25/12 11:03 PM (4 years, 10 months ago)

Hi, the more I'm reading the more uncertain I'm becoming on picking lights. The space that I will be using is 28" square by 36" high.  What's the best wattage and how many should I use for this space or should I use 2' T5 tubes. Thanks

Well I thought you said in your other post you were getting the t-5.  Those work okay, but IMO are really more suited to keeping a mother plant in veg and producing clones.


CFL's aren't too bad.  If you are going to use them you need to make sure you get the right spectrum.  The one you're looking for is 2700k.  How many you use is up to you.  But a good rule of thumb is the more the better.


What exactly are you uncertain about?
