Welcome!

There are plenty of users who can offer very useful advice. I would suggest creating a new thread in the "Marijuana Cultivation" forum, which can be found by clicking on the "community" hyperlink at the top of this page (directly below the advertisement banner).

Make sure you search the forum first, as your questions may have already been answered.The search tool is located at the top of this page, to the right of your username/status.

If you can't find anything in your search, make sure you scan through the forum rules and suggested formats for information requests, which are the top 1 or 2 threads in each forum (identified with a push-pin symbol next to them).

Have fun man, growing is a fascinating adventure. :bobmarley:

if your gonna risk it, then u might as well do it right!

If i were u id invest in a proper light for flowering.... you can get decent 600w hps lamps on ebay/amazon for cheap.


you will be happy you invested in the lamp come harvest time

the ir and uv is flammable so watch were you put it but it only uses like 200watts and you don't need to change lights or antyhing

You can really use any light that produces a reasonably full spectrum. The reason we all use certain lights is to get the maximum usable light for the plant, without producing a bunch of extra frequencies that the plants don't care about.

I have vegged and flowered under CFLs, with decent results, you dont necessarily need a paricular color CFL, but a lower color temperature (3000K or less) is probaby best for flowering.

HID bulbs (MH/HPS) are currently the best value and are time-tested performers on the grow scene.

LEDS will work, but you have to do your homework and be willing to dip into your wallet, as a lot of companies sell shitty LEDs, and good LED units can be expensive.

All other lighting options are either expensive or don't really live up to their claims.

It really depends on your needs as to what light is best for you. If you are doing a tiny grow with severe height restrictions and don't mind having functional but not-so-pretty buds, then CFL or a small LED panel may be best. For all other options, I would suggest some form of HID lighting.

But that's just my opinion, maybe you could give us a better idea of your grow room design, mainly how much cooling/ventilation you have and your room dimensions? I'm sure other more experienced growers could make a suggestion if you had this information.

At the time I grew these I believe I was still using Fox Farms stuff.

I am planning small grow 3 plants at the most and aa small tent so i dont want kilos of buds im doing this for fun mainly and for some friends at another forum so I am just planning to have a good time and learn from it, thats why I chose a small tent, 60 X 60 CM:s, 1.2 meters in square.
This is also why I chose the CFL, because wallet restraints and also simplicity.

For such a small grow I hope that the CFL will work? I plan to get 2 different ones, one for vegging and one for flowering. Red and blue.

Thanks for all the welcomes, makes me feel happy!

If you are referring to the red/blue cfl grow lights, where the light temperatures of each are red = 2700K and blue = 5000k+, then this will work.

If you are referring to these CFLs:

Then you should rethink your decision. These are party bulbs, and their red/blue coating is filtering out all of the full-spectrum light being generated within the tube of the bulb. This results in a much hotter bulb. Additionally, the red/blue light that it does give off is not likely to be centered around the max absorption frequencies of plant chlorophyll, so even less of the light would be usable. IF you are looking for pure red/blue light that plants can use, then led would be your grow light of choice.

Just making sure we are all talking about the same thing here :dancingshroom:

I am using a BIG CFL bulb, 250 w single lamp, these:

http://www.hydrogarden.se/ljus/lagenergi/

And as supplemental light a 150 W hanging light for foliage, so I am not going to use party lights or anything like that. Theyre called CFL grow lamps and are rather new and most people use your methods so this advice is sound, I am sorry i wasnt clearer.
