A great new edition to this increasingly popular range, we’re sure the Self-Ballasted Lamps (CFL) will become just as popular.
They provide your plants with lots of usable light for best growth and yield.
They give off very little heat, meaning you can place them close to your plants for maximum output. As the lamps are self-ballasted, you simply screw the CFL into your E40 reflector or hanger, giving you great convenience and flexibility - as well as cost savings.
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.
Compact Fluorescent lamps output 100% PAR (Photosynthetically active radiation) which helps your plants grow to be extra strong – Compact Fluorescent Bulbs are available for propagation, vegetation and flowering, and being self-ballasting – it’s even more cost effective and simple to install.
If you wish to set up an indoor hydroponic grow room but you are concerned with the temperatures that HID lighting can create, don't panic as these compact fluorescent lamps will run a lot cooler and they are great for small grow rooms and tents.
Compact fluorescent lamps have an integral ballast fitted which makes them suitable to run without any additional ballast required, just a normal plug timer can be used to control the on and off periods.
These lamps can be hung vertically in amongst your plants for additional lighting with an E40 ceramic lamp holder that has a cable and plug fitted, or they can be hung horizontally in a suitable reflector that has a mains plug fitted to cover your plants from above.
These energy efficient lamps can be positioned a lot closer to your plants.
Giant CFLs are market leading high powered compact fluorescent grow lamps (CFL) that can be used as either your primary grow light or as a supplementary light to your main grow light. They are available in Dual, blue and red spectrums for vegetative and/or flowering growth.
CFL bulbs are inexpensive to purchase and operate. When you flip on the light switch, an electrical current flows through a combination of argon and a small amount of mercury gas. This gas generates an invisible ultraviolet light that stimulates the phosphorous coating on the inside of the bulb which in turn produces the light that we see.
CFL bulbs, as mentioned above, are the best method for growing food from hydroponics, since they provided the light required for faster plant growth. If you choose to cultivate plants through hydroponics, you can set your garden in such place where you can take good care of the food and the plants receive adequate sunlight. However, if you plan to grow food in your kitchen, CFL bulbs are useful equipments for providing the light required for the growth of plans, vegetables, and fruits.
If you grow plants outdoors in your garden, they may be susceptible to certain risks like adverse weather, animal attacks etc. By growing plants inside your house, you avert these risks and can take better care of the plants. The CFL bulb will sufficiently provide the appropriate amount of light needed for plant growth. In fact, full spectrum CFL bulbs will make it seem as if your plants are taking in continuous sunlight, even if there are set in a windowless basement.
A full spectrum CFL bulb generates approximately, 6500 kilowatts of electricity. The manufacturer guarantees that is amount is a sufficient temperature that helps in fast plant cultivation. The CFL bulb is made with technology that emulates sunlight, and so it is helpful in growing plants wherever they are planted. Additionally, CFL bulbs produce a minimal amount of heat, so your plants are safe from any harm that may be caused.
When fitting your lamp into a holder, make sure you hold the lamp at the plastic base to screw it in the holder and not by the glass, as it is very fragile.
