    It'll be ok for a seedling, but you'll need more. And something better once flowering begins

    Suitable only at the initial stage of grow, when it is just starting to appear. And so the power is not enough for further maturation. What is your impression of her? Or have not started to use?

    Will work just fine but remember you need 2700K or so for flowering

    I'm growing under a 2x36W Tneon (4800lumen) and have done a full grow with it (different bulbs during veg and bloom) 6 years or so back and got 0.5gram/watt from it
    Watts determine weight so obviously you won't get much from it.
    This round I put four 4W LED 2200K bulbs with it as well for an additional 1600lumen to bring the total to 6400lumen

    You can use it... just don't expect huge harvests
