halogen flood lamps are not good at all. too much heat and wrong spectrum of light.

Many of the CFL Bulbs list their wattage with both their actual wattage and the incandescent equivlent. When you say 75 Compact Flou, are you talking about an actual 75 wat compact flou or an 18w that is equal to a 75 watt incandescent?

Thanks!

lighting is always a big thing halogen bulbs are the same as incandesant wehn it comes to growing all light no real lumen light so they are not to be used im a cheap grower too and this is my first time grow and i went with fluro lights too but i used the 4' tubes and a cfl the tubes are g.e. 40w daylight bulbs that put out 3050lumn/ bulb and the cfl is a 42W 2700lumen warm white (used more for the plants to reach toward cause im on a side grow with my tubes) and with this set up ive done well i think on my first try
