How much light to give growing chamber?
    #3151112 - 09/18/04 12:07 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

My growing chamber currently doesn't get very much light. I was hoping to buy a small light and place it inside. What kind of light should I buy? What wattage? Also what is the best temp. for the growing chamber?

Temp 74-77 degrees
Fluoros work great placed outside the chamber, I use 20 watts per chamber, which works beautiful. GL

Tell me if thats a good light. I was thinking of putting a hole in the top of the lid and then screwing the light in there through the hole hanging into the chamber, its 15 watts. The only down side it fanning with the lid would be more of a hassle.

I don't feel that really helped. IS the light that I posted and the hainging it in the chamber a good idea yes/no?

I wouldn't introduce any extra possible contam/heat issues than need be myself. I'd get a small fluoro with a plastic lens cover and cut a slit in the top and hot glue that light right to the lid. :wink:
