Quick Q about Flourescent Grow Lights
    #11358003 - 10/31/09 04:40 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Just wanna make sure.  Because I've been having bad results ever since I got them.  Are flourescent "grow lights" good more mushrooms and their pinning process or do I want to you use standard bulbs?

6500 K is the temperature in Kelvin that they burn at. its a way of distinguishing what color spectrum they are. it would say on the box that the bulbs came in
