Question Best t5 type veg light?
In great need of a better vegging light. I was thinking of the strip light kinds, but wondered what others prefer, whether im better off led. (Shoestring budget)
I use a 2 tube 18" T5 & 125w CFL for the seedlings and a TSW2000 for vegging
@zn I am reduced to the one 300 cfl, and a cheap led from wish . I broke the 2nd one lol. When it costs nearly 40 pounds to get another bulb its time to sort that out Even coverage and cheap running has got to be crucial I was thinking about a 4 bulbed one
Fluorescent lights mate, plenty of old ones about as everyone is changing to LED, very good vegging lights...proper old school 😉
I would like to get a 250w Lumatek digital ballasts and turn it down to 150w and use a 150w mh bulb, they should easily cover a 2ft x 2ft in veg and pentrate the canopy a lot better than a cfl ( less heat/electric and more light)
The ballast will last years.
@zn I got a cfl.. Actually got an envirogro 2 x 300 if anyone wants it.. I find it cumbersome though.. I think a t5 would serve better for are 1.2 meter squared
Dont mean CFLs mate, just standard tubes...office/shop refurbs ;)...you can get T5 fittings (Bulb size)...if they have 'grow' on them, they're twice as much ££s
