Yes, that will work, however it seems a little expensive for a single 2' 24W fixture. Look around, I think you can find a lot better deal.

YEAH, didn't even check the price...lol...That's really steep like Hemp Goddess said.


bought 2 at the IGL for around $36.00 and some tax.

Thanks everyone
Boy, i did pay to much didn`t I ?...I payed 37.50 each, a year ago for them...:shocked:
i was worried that the color spectrum might not be right for clones, although i`ve been using it for clones since i got it
I see 6400k, 6500k bulbs...this is to promote vegetation, but for clones, you don`t want vegetation, need roots first! I see 3000k bloom bulbs, would they work? Is there anything else, color spectrum wise?

I keep the lights about a foot from top of plants...that sound about right?

Thanks again...

No you want the 6500k light spectrum. That will promote rooting. That and having it on 24/7.


The hard orangey-yellow light of HPS is best suited for the bloom cycle.

You NEED blue, 6500 bulbs, if you invest a little bit in a new, larger set up you will be paid back in plenty with nuggets later, happy growing.

P.S.
I paid $240 for my 8 bulb 4 foot.
