    new bulbs... are they ok?

    i got 2 new 100w(output) Daylight CFs today. i had originally been using 2 cool white CFs. is there a difference between the two? the new lights are VERY blue.
    Thanks

    Daylight is better The blue spectrum promotes vegetative growth while the red spectrum promotes flowering.

    If you're worried about the blue spectrum not giving enough red, don't.

    I use a 65 watt (REAL PC) 10,000K over my terrarium, you're is probably around 64-65,000K. I'm getting flowers as we speak.
