Hello All. Total Newbie here. I just started my first indoor auto flower seedlings on a whim. They are way too stretchy. I suspect the cause of my issue is not enough light. Can anyone recommend a basic simple grow light to use that is powerful enough for 1-3 seedlings before moving them outside. Currently I’m using miracle grow bulb i had lying around. The stats are as follows:
Miracle LED® Ultra Grow Light Bulb
- Full-spectrum light is great for houseplants and indoor gardens
- 5" L x 3" W
- 12 watts
- Color temperature is 5000K
- E26/E27 screw-in base fits standard sockets
- 20,000 hours estimated lifespan
Clearly, its not powerful enough to prevent stretching. I just need a powerful light/lamp/bulb for the seedling phase before transporting outdoor. I see pot in a pot has a light/lamp but its about $170 and seems to cover only one plant. In other words overkill here. In my case i just need it for the seedling phase. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I have a bunch of florescent lamps in my space which would ideal but they are T5 size and only use one foot/12 inch bulbs and i don’t think anyone makes a one foot T5 bulb.
