What you have there is a flourescent light that puts off probably between 2 and 3 thousand lummens also it is not a grow light so it is not going to be putting off the correct light spectrum, growing under that light will probably probuce spindley plants with low yield. If your serious then spend the money and get either a MH or a HPS. I have 400 watt HPS and it puts out about 55,000 lumens, the difference one of these lights can make for your plants is simply amazing

sticky...I believe, that bulb requires a ballast. It doesn't fit a regular socket for a good reason...;)

It is actually a bulb for outside, like a over your garage, like a mercury vapor.

those are mogul base bolbs they come in (flood light which has ballast ) go to homedepot then in to electrician section and look for blue box wth" flood light fluorex " thats the name i belive they are really cheap , if they sell just the base (like in my are you can get them between 20-30 bucks, but you best bet is just go and read the box they have chart with lumesa , eficiensy etc.
