Cool white, soft white, or datlight delux? I would think "daylight delux", but would like some experienced feedback.

For vegatative growth... a blue color. That means you want the highest K(elvin) you can get. I always purchase the daylight delux or daylight plus florescents. These usually come in at 6500K and 2350 lumens.

The next thing is cost. Some of those compact ones are nice... but at thier price you can load up on cheap tube fixtures and tubes. I figure $14US for a fixture and the tubes required.

2' daylight tubes are $6 each canadian here. cool whites and the similar cheap red end ones are around 2-3 each. jsut for comparison.

i also prefer daylights over most. i also add a couple CP's if there is a few ddifferent plants in there, jsut to add some red. they 3/$15 here.

Can anyone shed some light into the efficiency of using fluoroescent lights against natural sunlight I.e. a plant by a window. Obviously this would depend on your location, would it be more efficient for me to grow my plant under lights (I have access to quite alot) or not worth the extra cash (electric bill). I don't mean to hijack the thread I just don't want to start a new one for this.

Thanks

with any artificial lighting it has the advantage of 2 things. color range specific, and time. windows are for one filtering rays (not sure how much that matters for plants???) and 2 arent getting a full days sun. sally can grow by a decently lit windo no problem, jsut not as fast.
