    Heya,

    Im really struggling to find myself some Daylight CFl bulbs 20-40W's without obviously getting my pants torn down and spanked real hard

    Im looking for 6-8 off these bulbs preferable 8, ive phoned round the locals and ive been looking all day. They either dont deliver to the UK or they just dont sell them full stop

    Anyone here able to share there knowledge on where i can buy there lights in the UK or will deliver to the UK.

    thanks
    regards

    Round here they only sell 3000k max I've tried every UK electrical shop DIY shop and electrical site in UK and all have nothing been looking literally all day really sucks tbh. The ones I found are like 5000k but like £12 a bulb if I need 8 of these aint really worth me growing something using a small stealth box is it.

    Thanks for the heads up abt home depot ill look them up when I get in later from work hopefully they deliver here in the UK and not much of a expense

    Canna please do send me that link ill take any heads up and links that would possibly help me find some of these bulbs :D

    Thx
    Regards

    ** BE ADVISED ** As someone who use to work for home depot and Low's. ( in the electrical dpt ) when calling up one of these stores you have a 80-90% chance you will get someone who has no clue what you are asking them. The best way to do anything over the phone is by looking at their online store first then find what you need. if you then choose to call them after have the " Store SKU # " ready. this will allow them to look into their computer system to see if they have such items. this can help you from not sitting on hold for 10 min's while they look for it. Just a heads up to whoever reads this.

    I HAVE NO FUCKIN IDEA WHY ANYWHERE lowes, HD, Walmart, Fry's ect ect ect. DOES NOT carry 42 watt daylight spectrum CFL lights. like wtf is it, some type of conspiracy, are they hip to growing, I don't think so??? I mean they carry the 2700K 42 watt cfls EVERYWHERE!!!!

    yea its ok to harvest your plants just don't veg them wtf???

    no seriously wtf is up with this?, anything above 23 watt daylight your outta luck ?

    yea I orderd the lights from amazon, but really I prefer just going out to the store and buying them, I don't understand what the big deal is with these bulbs?
