I picked up this grow light from a local hardware store before deciding to grow cannabis. It seemed to be the best one they had. I know a bit about lights but not when it comes to grow lights. I'm not even sure what to look for... So, is this ok for my seedling's

Β Thanks!

@shredmonkey only 25w man so pretty low in power. Probably be ok for seedlings but I’d imagine you’ll need something more powerful to see plants out to the endΒ

I have to agree with Rufio, seedlings and maybe early Veg but definitely not a bloom light at that wattage.

Random acts of kindness make the world a better place

That piece of crap won't take you much further than the first 5 finger leaves to be honest πŸ˜‰Β 

Get at least a 100watt light if you want a bit of decent smoke 😎
