Is my lighting okay?
    #3984612 - 03/29/05 11:40 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Sorry to make another lighting post--I know there is one every day, but here we go...

I am using 12 on/12 off during pinset... What do you guys recommend after pinset? I have heard everything from 4 hours on/20 off to 12/12.

The last grow I did, I just used a regular 60 W lamp bulb for one PMP and 8 cakes... I am doing several PMPs full of cakes now, and am curious if there's a better light I should use. I don't have a window in the room I'm using, so natural light isn't an option.

Thanks in advance, as always.

You have the idea. After your pinset is in, there's no need for 12/12 lighting. 8 on/16 off; 4 on/20 off, will work just great. Enough light to point them in the direction to grow, and give them that dark period to do their thing.

60 w sounds like quite a bit though, it seems like it would heat up your pmp
