I wanna use a fluorescent set up. Does the bulb strength, type of bulb matter ?bthanks for any tips
If using flourescents, use a T5 or T8 flourescent are better options over all T5 fluorescent bulbs are more efficient. For veg use something with 5500-6500 Kelvin flower is 25-2700 Kelvin bulbs
T5 HO (high output) tubes, the higher the watt the higher the output. I use them along with LEDs and HID.
You cna buy fluorescent lamps that have made for growing. Yes
I changed my fluorescent tubes out for LED tubes. Longer lasting and I could more readily get the exact spectrum I wanted.
