Marijuana lighting bulb fixture advice

A question from a fellow grower:

I would like to use a T-5 six bulb fixture in my closet. I’m on a budget and would prefer to only buy one fixture. My problem is do I want 3000k more of the red spectrum or 6500k more of the blue? They’re both 24w 2000 lumens per bulb but I’m understanding that blue is more important during vegetive and red more so in bloom. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

should also add to the last email that I have almost unlimited access to to the 40w and 150w cfl bulbs. Is there a difference between regular cfls and grow cfls? If there’s even such a thing?

I would buy one of these in a 250 or 400 watt model. Check it out :slight_smile:
