    Greetings,

    I was told one T-5 is enough light to cover my cloner.
    It is 50 square holes, and says 'Mondi' on the top of the clear dome.

    I read somewhere clones prefer 50 watts - 100 watts.
    I have the T-5 which is 25 watts and a curly bulbed florescent which is 125 watts.
    Is there a way to manifold several T-5's together?
    Or is 25 watts enough?


    Thank you...

    I'm sure its fine, don't need much light to root clones.

    I would think it would work. I have been using a single 12 inch 24w led strip for rooting. I imagine a T5 would be brighter than that.

    It can work well. Plants don't need to much light in this stage.
