Good morning guys,
I am looking to add supplemental CFL lighting to my tent to help the sides of the plants receive light…Im going CFL because they are fairly cheap. I am looking to you guys for recommendation. I am thinking of purchasing this https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01IOK2SHU/ref=ox_sc_act_image_1?smid=A3UENWQOYWIPH9&psc=1
My thought process is to somehow clip them to the sides of the tent on the bars. Any ideas or pics of set ups?
I’ll take a look, are you using just CFLs with them? Do you remove the cone?
You should look into bathroom fixtures that have up to six places for your CFL’s and hang them on your side they’re really cheap at Wally world
@Hogmaster doing some research now. Thank you!
@Hogmaster I see the grow journal with the WW autos
…I am doing blueberry autos, they are on an 18/6 light schedule. When your autos went to flower, did you just leave them on the same schedule?
@dmykins you can leave on same schedule
He uses a 14/10 schedule
You can put CFL or led bulb in and I don’t use the cone.
Perfect. I will look into them. Any cfl or is there a specific color range I should look for?
I use cfl only. I put grow tubes down the back. Good luck
Home made chandler. Seems to work best when I use 150 watt equ which is 40 actual Watts. At 2700 Kelvin. Happy growing
Daylight bulbs for veg. Soft white for bloom for cfl. I also was using this for a while for side lighting

After 2-3weeks of 18/6 I do 14/10 and if I do them with fem seeds they do well on a 12/12 light schedule
I like using my 300w leds for side lights
I picked these up for flowering @ $2 a piece.
Yea walmart has all kinds of good stuff to use. I checked out our walmart clearance section and picked up a couple led lights for dirt cheap. They have the coned fixtures like shown earlier starting at like 6.88… for the smaller ones. They did have T5 growing kits the other week for $20 but I passed and they disappeared the next time I went in.
Right now at out local Dollar General all the gardening stuff is 50% off. I hit that hard. The little 1 liter pressure sprayer was $2.
@JJ.chronic.clones what are grow tubes?
Sorry the cfl bulb’s in back ground are full spectrum grow lights from Waly world. I just call them tubes and others pig tales. Lol
