The best Fluorescent lights for Clones & Moms
I'm looking to build a small veg cabinet and I'm planning on putting in some fluorescent lights.
My space is 39" wide by 22" deep and approx 24" high.
I was thinking about getting 2x 2' long fluorescent tubes and arrange them on the the left and right sides trying for as even light distribution as possible.
Going over books, forums and checking out Home Depot, there seems to be a lot variety.
I'm just looking for something that will produce nice strong clones and mothers.. I'm not looking to flower or do anything super aggressive, just something nice to prep for a SOG setup.
What kind of lights should I be looking for? The grow shops in my area lean towards T5s but are pretty expensive..
Basically the two big things i'm looking for:
a) Can i get decent results with using T8 or T12 bulbs?
b) What type of bulb would be best? Cool White, Daylight, Plant & Aquarium?
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
