    Default T5 light

    Hi all am thinking off getting 6 clones under a t5 light. How long can I keep them under the t5 light? Am needing to veg for 9/10 week so I can move into the big flowering tent. Would this light be ok to veg for that long? I need to veg slow as possible till my other plants are done thanks

    The light will happily keep them, I'm not so sure it'll veg them too well... but others probably know more about that lighting technology than I do...

    Depends on the size of the t5 mate

    A got a 4 tube t5 fluorescent....start them under it while in coco. Even when training them....they seem to outgrow too quickly for me. Theres not much light penetration with them. N plants start to get stretchy.
