    How can I search T5 and come up with no results?

    I need new T5 HO bulbs 6500K (veg) ... What's new and exciting?

    this place is a joke
    thanks, bomba, at least I can read about them :)
    if I was an angry white man I'd fire off a letter to lying Hortilux, you can't get their bulbs up here

    I am late to the party here but I used a 6 bulb 4 ft ho t5 fixture with bulbs called finishers for veg and flower for my first 5 indoor grows. I got the fixtures and the bulbs from htg supply, a chain of grow stores around here. The finisher bulbs are supposed to have a 10000 deg kelvin spectrum. My plants were always nice short squat happy plants. I would mix in some 2700 kelvin and some 10000 kelvin with uv a bulbs in flower. I got some very nice smoke using that fixture. Sometimes I wonder why I 'upgraded' to an led.

    has anyone tried the T5 LED lights?
    was just in the shop the other day to get some new T5's and he showed me those.. looked pretty cool (but 3X the price, i stuck with the known for now ;-) )

    i had no idea they made an LED fixture for T5's
    oddly though; he said they're nice and bright, but don't last as long.. found that kinda strange.
    anyone any experience?

    Part of that same equation is also the lumens produced. I’ve noticed the LED T5 but along with the wattage being down so are,the lumens, unfortunately.

    It would seem they actually put out 300 more lumens per bulb than these traditional HO T5 bulbs>>>https://www.1000bulbs.com/category/f28t5-fluorescent-tubes-4100k/
