After transplanting (indoors)
After reading through 5 pages on this forum as well as the FAQ's on the Seed Starting forum, I still have a question regarding which fluorescent bulbs are best for both vegetative growth and the flowering/fruiting stage.
I have a 4 foot 2-bulb shoplight. I've actually started a few seeds under a 2 foot 2-bulb shoplight to get them through the seedling stage using cool white T-12's.
Now that I've purchased the 4 foot shoplight to use after I transplant the 5 seedlings, I need to know what type bulbs really will work best. I've read about several different types on here.
I'm under the impression Cool Whites are best for vegetative growth, and Warm Whites for flowering and fruiting. Although I'm also reading on here about Sylvania Gro-Lux (standard) and GE Chroma 75.
Should I just use 2 Cool Whites during the vegetative stages? Or 2 Grow Lux's? Or one of each? Or a Gro-Lux and GE Chroma 75?
And what would you use for the flowering stages? I'm guessing the best is to use either a Cool White and a Gro Lux combo, or a Gro Lux and GE Chroma 75 combo, or a Cool White and Warm White combo. Or would it be better to use 2 Gro Lux at this stage? I really want to make the best choice. So any advice will be appreciated.
