    Feel Upon A Brooder Lamp

    So mom helps run some apartments for a NFP. A resident recently moved out, leaving the remnants of a pot operation. My mom grabbed me a brooder lamp he left behind. I've only ever used fluorescents, any advice on how to best use this?

    Like a bird brooder lamp? Is it like one of the clamp-on lamps that used to be for incandescent (i.e. screw-in) bulbs?

    HA HA is she gonna call the cops?

    Does it take normal size bulbs or huge ones? If you use one that takes normal size bulbs you could use twisty compact fluorescent bulbs in it. Don't put a so called "Plant Grow Light" in there because they turn the reflector into a spot light that will cook your plants.

    If the reflector it takes huge bulbs then it's probably HPS or Metal Halide, those get very hot and you'll need a large area with lots of height (and probably fans) to keep from cooking the plants.

    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.
