I have read that the 2700K is better for flowering, than the 3000K.
But I do not have personal experience with it.

good stuff, so far cant find any 3000k ones anyway so would be nice if they were better.

Yes, I think the 2700 is at least just as good as the 3000k bulbs. They probablyt wouldn't have a noticable difference either way. :)

HTG sells 3000K T5 tubes. Do you already have the T5 fixture? How big is your space?

hey, yeh i have 10 24 watt HO ones. ill probabaly get a hps and use it in a wardrobe thats a bit bigger for flower next time, and use those t5s for veg in the future but for now just want to see the results. i have about 20,000lumens in that 4x2x2 vivarium.

have found another place too thats sells both now ill see which is cheaper/better delivery.
is there any advantage in the 3000 or 2700k? or with mixing and maatching the 6000k ones with either, enough fixtures anyway just a thought.

If your fixture is a true HO T5 use should use the 54W especially if you only have a 4' 4 tube fixture. I am just about finished with a indoor grow using 2 of those cheap $15 white reflector fixtures from Walmart that take 2 T8 tubes each I vegged to 18-20 inches with 6500K daylight for 18hours on and 6 hours off then switched to Kitchen and Bath 3000K for 12 on 12 off period talk about maybe a few dollars difference in my electric bill But I am going to use my new T5 4' 4tube fixture waiting for a 8 pack of mixed grow and bloom bulbs from HTG that cost me $32 + $14 shipping
