Artificial lighting
    #4549984 - 08/18/05 03:20 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I'm going to set up a grow room for my plants and I don't know anything about lighting. Are there any good resources on this topic I should be aware of?

Some of the shit I've got going:
Various cacti including Tric., Loph., Astrophytum, ect
Sarracenia, Dioneae, Drosera, Pinguicula
Salvia

might try a poppy or two if it is deemed feasible.

edit-
cacti will probably have to be under a different system?

Get a High pressure sodium light. They get real hot, and the ballest gets even hotter, 50w a sq foot would be enough for sure. 4' florecents are alright too, theyre preaty cheap.
Insidesun is a good online company.

Cool. I was thinking about getting a small array of compact flourescents or is that not enough power? Overgrow mentions it working for marijuana...

Thanks alot Rah!

you really need a HPS, or a agrosun bulb, that what I use,
I never messed with flourescents, except for starting seeds.

Floros Work Very well for suplementing HIDs But should never replace them. If you ever want flowers stick with the good shtuff.

Are H.P.S. good for a month or two old cacti?

I think you would need a shade screen to protect them... if they're still wee.
