Hey guys I've done a lot of reading but still unsure which light to choose for my clones.

I have a small cupboard which I plan to keep them in while my bigger plants are in flowering in their own tent.

I see my local hydro store sells LED lights but they are from about $300 upward. My wife is already on my case about spending too much haha.

Could you please recommend a fairly low-cost light that would be good for my clones?

Any cheap LED will be fine. I have 2 x viparspectra 300s. I think each draws 130w from the wall.

For clones I simply use a fluro

Cheap to buy, cheap to run.

Clones need to be nurtured, not beaten into submission. Anything too intense will fry them, hence the fluro.

HLG65 would be my pick after my latest efforts. $199 atm for the v2.

A couple of 24w cfls is all you need to strike clones. Once rooted a 130w cfl is ample light to keep them ticking along

I agree with cfl, i have 2 x 18w t5 from bunnings, the cool white versions. perfect for taking cuttings. 

 

I also can back up the 130w for veg as I am using one right now working great. although i miss the old 80w phillips bulbs lol

100% I use a 100 watt pink/red led cob which doesn't produce any heat
Works a treat
Use it for veg as well which in fact I'm doing right now
Couldn't tell who made it,came with a kit in the web when I first started indoors
Just keep them warm
Also try keep the humidity up
