MJ = Baby Chickens?

A customer has a question and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks.

“would it grow good if I used a 250W heat lamp red like you would use for baby chickens.”

No, the heat lamps don’t give out the right spectrum that cannabis likes for veg. Plus the heat is no good for your plants! You can buy 6500K CFL bulbs at Walmart, Home Depot, even most grocery stores now. They will work 100x better! Lighting is extremely important when growing good cannabis.


The heat wouldn’t be good for them now however far red spectrum does speed up root developement and flowers on budsite not that you need to worry about that yet, but if you could find a bulb or lamp with far read spectrum and powerful enough that produces minimal heat youbshould actually be fine
