Walmart grow lights?
So, my buddy and I walk into walmart the other week. We wander around and come across this aisle of 'grow lights;' $10 fluorescent tube lights with outlet plugs. He said we should use those for our first grow. I disagreed, said they didn't have enough wattage to even be worth while. Do you guys agree or disagree? I'd love to hear from someone who has had positive results with these lights! I also wouldn't mind hearing from someone who's had horrible, negative results, either.
I'm considering buying two and just putting them on the floor. They don't get very hot at all, and they can provide a little bit of light to the lower leaves.
I do not smoke, nor do I grow, marijuana. It's illegal. Everything I do or say is a lie. Including this.
I have some.They're ok for little sprouts, and for supplemental lighting.If you tried to grow with them exclusively, you'd probably need a lot or you'd get stretchy plants.
