Hey everyone, I have a question about grow box lighting. I'm building a 48" long X 36" high X 36" wide veg box for my momma's and clones. I have four 48" t-8 florescent lights that I was thinking about using across the top. Would I be better off using like 4 to 6 150 watt cfl bulbs from home depot or should I stick with my t-8's? I also have a 400 watt mh/hps light that im gonna use for my flower room/closet.

 

Thanks in advance for the knowledge. This site f'in rocks!!

i would use single cfl bulbs as opposed to the 2ft, 4ft, or 8ft bulbs because of mobility. if you have plants of different heights in your veg room, its a lot easier to get good light on them by moving single bulbs around rather than trying to illuminate a 12" tall plant and a 20" tall plant with the same tube.
