What to do with all these CFL's?
    #709928 - 01/26/14 01:23 PM (3 years, 3 months ago)

Several months ago I got bored with growing shrooms so I decided to jump in head first into MJ without researching enough and wasted a ton of $ on CFL's. I actually had some pretty great results with them but have since invested in a 400W ballast/MH and a 600W ballast/HPS for flowering.

I dont have room for my CFL's any longer since I'm growing in a 10' X 5' closet. What should I do with all this crap? I put it on CL but I seriously doubt it will sell in my area.

If 3 months is old, I guess...but hard to list them for $50 when I have over 300 in them. I've got $50 just in the damn socket extenders,  splitters, and round hoods. :frown:

Lol yeah I know...I'd rather it all sit in a box than take $50 for it though.

Harsh man, I said in the OP I jumped in head first without researching much and have since learned the error of my ways...I dont expect to get 200, that's just what I have it listed on CL for but I damn sure wont let it all go for 50 bucks...just one wing hood/125W CFL was more than that and they were only used for one grow.

The reason I originally chose CFL's was because I was worried about heat and electric costs. I was right to worry too, even when its 10 below outside I'm having problems keeping my grow room under 90 with the MH and HPS going. I guess I won't be able to grow at all this summer unless I go back to the CFL's.

Watt for watt, CFL put out more heat than HID.  You also can put them in an aircooled reflector to help vent the heat away. 

How much fresh air do you have moving in your grow space?  How are you venting?  600 watts should be very easy to manage.


And I fuck with everyone man, don't take it personally.  But no one is going to give you 200 bucks for this.  Also, this belongs in The Lot.  TSL is not a trading forum.

Well it didn't start out as a trading thread but I was asked what I wanted for it...and again, I know Im not getting 200 for it...I always price things high on CL because everyone wants to talk you down.

I understand the watt for watt heat difference, but using all of these CFL's the room never got over 75. I know my plants didn't flourish as well either but you gotta do what you gotta do.

Im actually dealing with 1000 watts not 600, its hard in a 10' X 5' closet with only a bathroom exhaust fan in the ceiling venting out heat. I have a cool tube ducted to the exhaust fan on the 400W because its in a tent, but only have a plain wing reflector for the 600W...just ordered a cool tube for it though so hopefully that will end my problems because I really don't want to go back to the CFL's.

A bathroom exhaust fan is not pulling enough CFM to cool your lights.  You are going to want to get a real inline fan for each of the lights to cool them, and exhaust the heat out.

I do have an inlne duct fan for the 400 and ordered one with the cool tube for the 600 too...both are only 240 cfm though. The bathroom exhaust fan is mainly just for pulling heat out of the room. Do they need to be blowing over the bulbs or sucking air across or does it matter? I have the 400 blowing over right now.

You want to pull the air over the bulb.  Where is the inline exhausting to?  It's not just exhausting into the room is it?

It's exhausting to the ceiling bathroom exhaust fan...duct is running up to it but I'm sure some of the air is going back into the room since it's not "attached" to the bathroom exhaust, just blowing at it. I guess I need to cut another hole in the ceiling and exhaust directly into the attic?

That is exactly what you need to do.
