newbie confused on T5 specs
I have to replace a T5 bulb that is 24 watts, 6400 Kelvins, 2800 lumens.
I found one that is different wattage. I have found different kelvins (3000 and 4100). I found one that said "high output". My original one didn't say that. So far I haven't nailed down the lumens for these potential replacements.
My question is basically compatibility with the existing fixture...are any of these specs tied to the fixture in use?
I know that Kelvins affect the growth charactistics...color spectrum. I want 6400 for daylight. But what about the other specs? will they work in my existing fixture? Originally my fixture came with the bulbs that I can't find exact replacements for.
