  2. "T5 & T8 are mainly tube sizes, its the lumens and kelvin rating that matters. Daylight bulbs are around 2000 lumens & 6000K. Ideally, this is where you want to be, the bottom pics are 4000K, cant tell on the rest

    Hope this helps"

    yeah t5s in veg seem to be the way to go for maximum yield,
    been contemplating building a budget t5 veg tent n splitting my extraction to both tents, may just be an idea for now tho!
