Where to buy an appropriate fluorescent desk lamp for VFT?

by Lionhart » Sun Jul 18, 2010 11:20 am

Hello there!

I'm looking for a fluorescent desk lamp with a descent watt for my VFT and to no avail I am struggling to find a suitable one that I can use. I live in the UK where the weather not so good at the moment considering where in summer. Any help would be very very appreciated :)
Thanks

Hello an welcome!

It really depends on what your getting either a CFL or TFL. But the color temp has to 6500K

Hello Allen and thanks for replying!

Yeah I'm looking for a compact flouresant light in the form of a desk lamp suitable enough to use on my VFT to grow during the bad days.

Something like this:

I found a product called an intelligent plant light

...but I don't know whether it would be strong enough and even if it was I would be unable to purchase it owing to where I live.

That should work OK for one plant, but it would be better if you could find something with similar stats but higher wattage.
