    haz,

    Youre asking for simple answers to a complex issue.... To begin with, Id rather have a t12 with a good reflector than a T5 with no reflector. Remember, 2/3rds of the bulb is pointed in the wrong direction.

    As a rule of thumb, for lower intensity plants you need 15-20 watts per square foot; on the high end you need 20-25 watts per square foot.

    This is an old reference, predates T5 but it is still by far the single best introduction into plant lighting I have ever read. Caveat, even it has it's limitations, and photosynthesis is only part of the puzzle.

    Depends on the Neps, not all have the same requirements.
