    Ya it should work. They will be close together though because this light does not throw down much of a footprint. I would not want to put my plants in anything bigger than a 3-5 gallon. You are probably better off using 2-3 gallon pots and veg for shorter.

    You also might want to think about getting some bloom T5 bulbs for when you want to flower them. You might not get a lot of quantity, but you can get some super quality with a T5. Good luck man, hope this helps! -Cheif
  4. yeah that could work, probably not well for 4 plants, but if you decide to get it don't forget to tell them to add the bulbs, says that at the bottom. Personally I would just use cfl's if you're thinking of using the T5's. You can fit more watts in a smaller space for a cheaper price. The T5's and the reflector would be a lot easier to mess with but it's only 175w for $100. For 4 plants I would want way more than 175 watts. More like 600-700w at least. You can get 3 26watt cfl's at walmart for $10. So if you bought 10 of them ($100) you would have 30 bulbs and 780 watts. Like I said, the reflector and T5's would be an easy set up but the cfl's will produce more light which equals more bud. I like the 55w bulbs for $12 and the 3 pack of 26w for $10. Then Y sockets to get 2 bulbs per one socket input. I get great results with cfls :bigjoint:

    This would be good to veg with but flowering you need to load up if you going to use for both do 12 / 12 from seed or small :idea::clap:

    T5's are great for vegging (6000K).....you can always swap out the bulbs for flower. You'll end up getting more lights in the future, but this is a good start.
