completly out of interest, with no intention of growing, can i grow a plant with cfl 2700 kelvin color temp and 10800 lumens? im not bothered if its not the fastest method because the lights are 3 for 50 pence and they have 600 lumens each, i just want to know if the plant will servive

the 2700k spectrum is a good colour for flowering,but can be used all the way through.
the lights you mention would not yield much,you need a bigger more intense light to grow a plant that receives decent lummens at the lower growth.
what wattage are they ?

10,000 Lumens/plant would work... as they're 2700K get yourself some auto's and run them 20 on 4 off and get them as close as possible and you should get smoe smokable bud.

If the bulbs are 600 lumen each you would need 18 of them to get enough light per plant. That'll take a lot of wiring up and mounting.

thank you very much for your replys, im looking to grow cheese, as i have some seeds already, only 2 plants as i cant afford many lights and i am limited on space, and the lights are 11watt each, wiring isnt a problem as i am good friends with a sparky, with the lamps being 50p for 3 and the holders being 50p each per plant its costing me 12 on lighting, wire is no issue thanks to my friend, its a low budget project, auto's are an option though, the enclosure is gonna be aproximatly 2.5ft by 3.5ft and height can be up to 6 foot if needed, again, sorry for the disclaimer but you know how it is, i have no intention of growing cannabis, what i have just said is a lie, i have never smoked cannabis and have no intention too. cheers wert and cheers Mr_Bimble, hope to here from you guys soon :)

P.S the seeds are feminized

ok, i am a little paranoid, but does it matter? i mean, really? anyways, so will it work? 32 11w lights with 600 lumens at 2700k lighting 2 plants in a 2.5x3.5ft enclosure? thats all i want to know

you can grow pretty much anywhere, check my sig, i went for a 125w cfl which is 2700k red spectrum,(which is better for flowering than vegging but will do an ok job at both) if your concerned about size/lights search pc grows, they will show you what you can do with any space. peace. J

Check out B&Q and wilko's and buy the highest wattage CFL's that you can afford - they had some 20W three packs on offer last time I was in there.

If they have some 6400K (blue) Daylight bulbs get a few of those and stick them in too.

The only problem with getting a mate to wire the lights up means he'll know you're growing and that's one person too many.
