What kind of fluorescents can I use?

Can I use a t8 fluorescent shop light for 4 small seedlings.? Help.
First time growing.

I am thinkin on using this to start my germinated seeds.

You sure can Ashley, and they’ll work just fine!
-good luck

Ya you can use the T8 for your seedlings .
But you’ll want to bump up to say 400 H. P. S lights. Here is a link

I already bought one. The one I already have is a 400w high pressure sodium and the one I ordered on eBay is a 400w metal halide. I’m going to use the metal halide during the veg stage, when it’s time for flowing I’ll switch to hps. I think I have it right. I have done tons an tons of research I’m starting small. Keeping it simple until I learn an get a few grows under my belt. Thank you. For your help.

@Ashley you will need to get at least a inline fan 290 CFM to vent the heat from your 400 MH/HPS light during flowering cause of the heat the lights put off , watch your watering also and keep us updated .
