HD or Lowes(dont remember right off hand) has 4light-4ft t5 and t12 for $20!!(bulbs not included of course). I'm thinking about picking up a couple myself for my next grow for veg and flower.
all i can say is htg supply diy build kit cheapest youll find and not difficult to build.
I just read this whole thread(thanks in part to some OG Kush).....cfl box, newbie who now has, some great info! TY for all who have contributed to this thread!
Quick question regarding the first post; Is it ok to keep a true 150w cfl as close? Assuming op was referring to the smaller cfls (ex.27w/46w) Thanks
i kinda get what the OP is saying, buying 200 watts worth of 40 watt cfls and moving them all around the plant is better than buying some 250 watt hps and just hanging it on top. Better to just litter the top, left, right, back and even your door with massive amounts of CFL spam that way your plant gets maximum light coverage and grows out on all directions
I'm totally new to this.
Where do you find these multi socketed light fixtures. I can't find them anywhere.
I looked through 4 lowes in MA and NH but I couldn't find the Y-connector that splits a a socket into two sockets. I checked True Value and a bunch of other hardware stores too. Being a sketch mofo I didnt want to look suspicious buying tons of grow-equipment in the same place lol.. Ends up lowes stopped carrying them a few months ago. But then I went to Home Depot and they had boxes of em for cheap! like 1.50 for 1.
Your best bet is going to home depot or ordering them online. You can find them in the electrical section near the switches/outlets.
They are called twin socket splitters, not y-connectors. Go to HD and ask where the Twin Socket Splitters for light bulbs are and they should take you right there. You can get them online as well.

I just read this entire thread(took me a couple of days) and I want to thank everyone who contributed. I'm new here (but not a newb) and I still learned some things. Thank you.
