    Has anyone tried to use one of these?

    It looks like a cool system but only 9 watts of light makes me wonder.

    Definately not worth it. Stick with a 4ft shoplight. You can get 2 bulbs and the fixture for a lot cheaper. Plus you will have more grow space then. I don't know about you but I need more room than one pot.

    I've never tried that, but the wattage is WAY too low to grow CPs successfully. It may be full spectrum, but wattage is much more important than spectrum.

    Thats what I was thinking, I just wanted something to grow 1 pot of VFT's on my desk in the open. I wonder if I can modify it for a more powerfull CF light? Anyway I guess I will have to just make my own desk system.

    Get one of those adjustable gooseneck type desk lamps and stick a 35w-45w CF bulb in it.

    Well it looks spiffy..

    IF you were just using it to suppliment a nice sunny window then it would probably suffice.. at most.

    I just went to Lowes today and I HAD to buy a VFT they had ( Massive Traps ). I also got one of those clip on light fixturers and a 30w CF bulb. It wont be as pretty, but it'll work for a desk.
