I have a 3' grow space that i'm using and i wanted to use flourescents... so i got 2 4' flors and i cut them into 3' lamps... now when i say i just cut them i really mean that i took the end caps off and i removed all the wiring so that the only thing i was cutting was the hood... so i assembled it all back together and its the perfect size to fit the 3' bulbs... but when i plug it in the bulbs just flicker and turn off... sometimes i can get them to stay on for maybe a min or two but then they turn off... now i looked at the ballast on the lights it says it supports T8 bulbs... and the bulbs i'm using are 3' T8 s so i dont know what to do? what can i do? thanks for the help...
