Lighting for mother

Post by Twisted »

Hi all im looking at keeping maybe 1 or 2 mothers, whats the cheapest way of keeping them? Lighting wise? Something that won't take lots of electricity and cheap to buy?

Do you need the extraction etc or would just the bulb be enough?

I use a T5HO 48w in a Green cube 60cm.
I just vent the tent a bit.

I've never kept a mother plant, but I know a couple people that used T5 lights for it.

we kept the purple queen alive in a GQ60 with a ten quid led panel off amazon(pinky purple colour) and it was about 16watts. kept the thin alive and fine for a couple of months before the big tent was free again. they really dont need much.
