The Spectromaster Compact Fluo Lamp 250W Agro dual Spectrum is a low-consumption, high-powered compact fluorescent grow lamp (CFL). These grow lamps are great for the vegetative and bloom stage of a plant’s life and will help keep temperatures lower and minimize plant stretching common for young plants with HPS sodium lamps.
The peculiarity of this lamp is the fluorescent tubes’ capability to emit 2 separate temperature colors, 2100°K for the blooming stage and 6400°K for growing.
The Compact Fluorescent lamp generates low heat, uses low energy, and is incredibly effective. Due to its energy-saving properties, the compact fluorescent helps reduce the overall operating costs of running an indoor garden.
No separate ballast is required for these lights. You must screw it into a standard E40 fitting (normal grow light lampholder) and run it directly through a mains plug.
CFLs have been used successfully by many growers across the globe as a complete light source for their plants.
There are several benefits to using CFLs over HIDs in small or confined growing areas: Less heat output makes for easier environmental control Less power consumption makes for cheaper energy bills.
You can place it closer to plants giving extra space in confined environments.
