are you serious LOL stay away from the Christmas lights. same with the regular 40w or 60w lights stay away from those you need at least CFL lights.
go to home depot and get 1, 2, 3 however many sockets you want. and get the light for working under the hood on your car the ones with the plastic cage around the bulb. like 5 dollors each get a couple or a few of those.
then buy a bunch of light spliter’s make on light into 2 add another you get 3 lights per cord. there like 80 cents each
get Daylight and Bright white CFL bulbs the ones you use in your house lamps the bigger the better. take the cage off the light socket add 1 spliter for 2 bulbs or 2 spliters to run 3 bulbs have a few of the 3 bulb setups one over each plant. 5-pack of bulbs under 10 dollors. that will be the cheapest way to do it and get halfway decent plants.
hey ive just germinated my seeds and theyve popped up ive only got 3 choices
40 watt indacesent light or 60 however you spell it
orr christmas lights
these are my plants a day after germination they wernt under light. any help or advice is veryy usefull
or if you can come up with some money you can search the web. craigslist ect. for a cheap 250w or 400w HPS setup they will be close in price so its worth getting the 400 cause in a year you will probably be getting one anyways. that way you do it the rite way from the start. its worth the investment it will pay for itself over and over anything you add to your grow will pay for itself.
Yes. However, a plant’s LED light power requirements change during the growth cycle. As your plants get larger, they’ll need a high-powered LED to thrive. The standard LED bulb that works during the first few weeks of growth is insufficient in the flowering stage.
● They’re typically the choice of professionals.
You can buy HPS lighting in a variety of strengths, but don’t use 1000W. It is far too powerful and is only suitable if you have created a vast underground field of cannabis plants! Instead, a pair of 400W or 600W HPS lights should suffice.
● Lower initial cost than LED.
Are House Lights Good for Plants?
HID Lights are typically divided into a few different varieties or sub-categories:
Then again, if you have a grow space of less than five square feet, fluorescent light is enough when your plants are small. You can upgrade to a 250W HPS as the plants get larger. If you have space, an MH light for plants in the vegetative stage and HPS for the blooming phase works well. Using MH lighting throughout is fine but will have fewer flowers, more foliage, and a lower yield.
● Only useful for small grows.
Growth Cycle Stage
When growing marijuana indoors, you have to decide what takes top priority. Do you care about your energy bills, the environment, secrecy, or efficiency?
High-Pressure Sodium, or HPS, grow lights are far more efficient than other forms of HID. They emit a gentler, yellow light that cannabis prefers when it is in the flowering stage. This yellow light helps encourage intense bud production. In addition, it allows you to configure the eventual size of your harvest more precisely.
