Compact fluorescent 6500K help :*)
I just started my my winter green thumb. Being the person that I am, I wanted to figure out what made a grow light a grow light. After not to much reading I found out that a lot of grow light jargon is just marketing hype. Anyway...
So I read that I needed to calculate watts/ft.sq. Then lumens/ft.sq., then micromoles/meter sq. now I am at PAR/meter sq. AGGGhhhh, I mean the science is fun but at some point I want to figure out how much light I need to provide my Asiatic lily seedlings with :*)
Right now I have a 6500k 23watt(1700 lumen) CFL on the seedlings. Honestly I am confused at the moment how many CFL's I will need to get the job done? I was looking at 65 to 85watt cfls.
Can someone please help me out of this light vortex so I can get some sleep? :*O
