    DIY just means "do it yourself" and I guess he was asking if you had access to a store like home depot or something.

    I'd use 2 more of those lights.

    yep! those have an output of 100w which is enough for many CPs. 2 of those and you could grow... just about anything lightwise

    That's just the 'comparison' to show how much lumens it looks like compared to a regular incandescent bulb. Or, it's just saying it emits as much light output as an incandescent bulb that uses 100 watts. It really isn't much, just 20 watts. I'd say you might even want 4 of them, or use higher wattage bulbs.

    if it is only 20W and i need 4 of them why i should use them? wouldn't it be better just to have one normal 100 W lamp instead of 4?

    I can answer that --- 1) shadow and 2) dependability. You should certainly position the lamps/lights as close to the plants as is possible.

    1) More lamps can provide light from more directions, thereby giving the plant more of what it needs, several lamps will be overlapping where more than one illuminates the same surface, at the same time.
    2) If you had a single lamp, and it failed, BTW it will fail at some future date, then your plant will be without light until it is replaced. With several lamps, it will be more likely that at least one will be illuminating the plant whenever any other lamp will be in need of replacement from failure.
