Marijuana grow light for rookie


#1

what light system would be the best for a rookie

It depends on the size of the space you want to grow in. Another issue you have to plan for is: Can you regulate the heat caused by the lamp you choose?

Best to give us a little more info on what size grow, and what type of nvironment you will be dealing with.
