amount of light needed
    #4088814 - 04/23/05 04:59 PM (13 years, 5 days ago)

I was looking for a light source for my fruiting chamber when i stumbledd upon an old penlight i have. It was originally intended to test pupil dialation so its not that strong. Would this work ok as my light source or do i need a more powerful one. It has an LED looking bulb.

I have a cabinet light in my fruiting chamber. It only has 5 leds and lights mine fine. 1 led would be hard to use I would think because it would be hard to light the whole chamber. You don't need much light. I have seen teks that say only a few minutes a day is enough and according to the pic they get some great flushes. I do always use 12 on 12 off though... 
Enjoy :mushroom2:

You could use a light like this:



It uses 4 AA batteries, which will last about 15 hours...Youu can pick it up at Lowes $13.00 for a 2 pack.

Hope this helps.
