CFL Lights in cannabis growing
CFL (Compact fluorescent light) lamps can offer you several advantages in your cannabis-growing, one of them is that these bulbs are easy to install and use, so if you are just starting to grow your own weed, you won’t have so many complications.
These bulbs are usually inexpensive and accessible, as you can get them in several places, such as DIY stores or some supermarkets.
Generally, cannabis plants in their early stages of life need less light power; therefore, using these lights represent a great alternative. These lamps are perfect for rooting cuttings or growing seedlings. They usually have a blue light spectrum and are energy efficient.
Another advantage is that these bulbs consume little energy and therefore reduce your electricity bill. They also generate little heat so they are especially suitable for small growing.
The disadvantage is that some of these lights tend to have a shorter lifespan compared to other lamps. In addition, there are CFL lights that can be used in flowering, but the yields will be lower.
