    Unhappy

    Hey all. I'm nearly finished with a good-sized grow chamber and haven't thought how to light it quite yet. I was originally going to put 6-8 4ft. fluorescent tubes over it, but it's three feet deep. What do you guys suggest? I was thinking CF lights or VHO but I don't know where to get them. Thanks.

    Try these. each light strip puts out around 9,000 lumens of light. You can order just the reflector for $19.99 by itself on the easy ordering at the bottom of the page. The bulbs last about 2-3 years on a 16 hour photoperiod.

    If you made a large(you say 3'ft deep) grow "chamber" you should look into HPS and MH lights. You'll spend the same amout of money but get more light and use less power in the progress. You can find 150w hps yard lights that put out around 15,800 lumens for under $100 and convert them.
