New LED bulbs in stead of CFL

A question from a fellow grower:

I would like to know if you can use the new LED light bulbs and if they are as good as the CFL bulbs for growing?

okay I did just that to see. First off you get lower lumens with the100 watt led bulb than the cfls, plus they cost more. 100 watt leds will work, but I suggest if you are wanting to go with led’s buy a good one designed to grow the bud properly. I’d stick with cfl’s until I was able to buy a good led.
Actually cfl bulbs have a perfect spectrum for you plants they just don’t penetrate, so keep making a canopy and lollipopping and LST.
