A question from a fellow grower:
I'm designing and building my first grow box which needs to be relatively short (~3'), I just want to start with 5 plants for the first run, I want to try fluorescents first, whats your opinion on yellow red bulbs for flowering? have you heard of anyone having success with them? There are phillips yellow bulbs that say they emit around 2200k light granted its only 34W and I cant find it now but only ~1300ish lumens, the other more readily available bulbs I could use are 3000k are they warm enough for flowering? I'm thinking about a 4 bulb t5 setup, are there other options for flowering lighting with that?
