Hey guys, spent the last of my budget on a completely wrong light for my set up so a friend offered me this for free -

I have done a fair bit of reading online but still unsure due to all the mixed opinions if it is safe to grow with only a red cfl. Has anyone gotten decent results? it is only for a small stealth grow 3x4 ft.

 

Cheers

You should get a blue spectrum bulb for veg... Or at least a cool white fluro bulb. Red will cause the plant to focus growth in it's stem.

Should be fine for just 1 plant... 2 max. You will only get minimum yields on fluros, but good for little stealth grows.

I would even recommend a 250w MH/HPS. You can get a kit off ebay with a ballast, reflector, bulbs and hangers for just under $100 (keep in mind that you get what you pay for). You'll just need some sort of exhaust setup for cooling but you'll see a big increase in yield.

Definitely out of the budget unfortunately, would adding some small cfls to the side be more beneficial than led strips?

Out of your budget ???

Those little lights produce little .

Budget ,,? ,,,,, use them but you'll probably need to budget in buying dope cos you won't get much yield from them .

You need a better light ,,

Unfortunately Serrated is right man. Probably not even worth it to add more lights as it will just add more heat to your tent and the LED strips will literally do f**k all, and I'm assuming you don't have an exhaust setup to deal with excess heat.

CFLs are great for clones and seedlings, but not really for anything else. You'll have to train your 2 plants hard to get the most out of them using the fluros.

At the end of the day, it's your choice. But if you actually want decent yields, you need to spend $$$ on a decent setup.
