Dam there was a thread that went over what t5's, t8's and I believe t12's put out lumen wise and which was the best. I forget who posted it....I think it was JAAM....maybe he will chime in.

T5's---- 92.6 lumens per watt
T8's---- 85 lumens per watt
T12's--- 30 lumens per watt

And i stick with my t8s just for the price difference.


24/0 costs more $$$ for t5 bulbs, i really do love my Diamond Plated T8s with 6500k phillips bulbs. Full year on same bulbs too

As mentioned T8's do reallly well for seedlings and clones, i can keep em really close and get very tight growth, just cant leave em there to long.
