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.

CFL (Compact Fluorescent)

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

Strong Clamp and Bright Bulb!

Rating:
Very good for the price. I was especially impressed with the clamp -- it is very strong and it is made out of rubber so it is less likely to scratch or damage whatever object you might clamp it to.

My dad commented that this clamp light fixture is also a very convenient way to move a light around -- and I would say he is right. This fixture seems to be a great choice for a portable light source. (Certainly easier than trying to move an entire lamp around).

The bulb is brighter than I expected. After only a few days, you can see the plants perking up and starting to grow towards the light.
