CFL light recommendations


#1

How many 100 w cfl bulbs should be in a 2x4x6 closet and what spectrum? Veg and flower??


#2

Veg 5000 kelvin, flower 2700 Kelvin how many for that area roughly 10-12, just my opinion, so remember you need 50 watts per sq ft


#3

Is it good to mix a couple 2700k in during veg? Or strictly 5000k? And vice versa for flower?


#4

My opinion it wouldn’t matter to mix a couple in maybe one for every 4 lights of the 5000 kelvin


#5

Awesome I now have 8 5000k and 2 2700k.


#6

Good start


#7

How many should I have during flower?


#8

Same amount but all switched to 2700 kelvin


#9

Ok, still have 2 of the 5000k or all 2700


#10

All 2700 it will be more helpful

#17

Would 6500k bulbs be better for veg? Seen some of those in local lumber yard no was curious


#18

Yes 6500k is better in veg 2700k in flower


#19

#20

Edit oops wrong one 5000 I think is warm white while 6500k is cool daylight or vise versa but both can be used for veg
