The 6500k bulbs are full spectrum bulb which promotes overall plant growth. Requires a larger mogul fixture or socket and 110/120 volt outlet. The light output of these bulbs are the same as a 500 watt incandescent bulb.

PLANT GROW LIGHT GUIDE
Growing Area
The growing areas listed above assume the light bulbs are being used in a fixture
with a reflector similar in quality to the ones offered on this web site.
Primary - Use this area if the grow light will be the main or only source of light for the plants. This includes areas where minimal light comes from windows or standard house/office lights.

Secondary - Use this area if the grow light will be used in a greenhouse or other area that receives direct sunlight for part of the day to supplement the light from the sun.

How Long Should Grow Lights Run?
This depends on the type of plant. Foliage plants need about 14-16 hours of light per day. Flowering plants need 12-16 hours of light per day. You should give most plants at least 8 hours of total darkness daily. Try to have the lights on at the same time every day. Using an automatic timer for your lights is recommended to make it easier.
The Electrical Cost to Run a Grow Light System
To get the operating cost per hour for a light, take the lights combined wattage, and divide it by 1000 to get the kilowatts used. Then multiply that number by the amount your electric company charges per kilowatt hour. HID lights will use the number of watts it emits per hour, ie; 600w system will use 600 watts per hour (regardless of spectrum).
(light wattage output / 1000) x electricity cost per kilowatt hour = Operating cost per hour
operating cost per hour x hours used per month = Operating cost per month
Overall Customer Rating of 1 Reviews:

Great return service

Rating:
This was actually an exchange. I replaced my original grow bulb after 10 years or so of service, but the new bulb worked just a few minutes and then quit. I called ACF customer service, expecting perhaps an argument - because after all, it was a light bulb, and maybe I damaged it . . . It turned out that the customer service representative was super helpful and friendly, no problems at all, and immediately arranged for a replacement and sent a return label for the old bulb. I've already received the new bulb and it works fine. I have worked with this company for years and I've always been impressed by their selection and service. Thanks!
