4k bulb for autos?

  • Well, we're still working on things and I imagine we'll see some bugs, some breaking, and things that need to get fixed. We'll start on the most critical things first and work our way down. We're still installing add-on's and squaring away some licensing stuff, but feel free to browse the board and we'll update everyone on when things are added, restored, or otherwise changed.

Hello, new to the forum.

I'm starting my first 'auto' grow, after several successful photo grows. I'm planning to use a 4K 600W MH bulb 18/6 for the entire grow. I've read that the 4K bulb, being between a 6K 'veg' bulb and a 2K 'flower' bulb is actually the 'one-fits-all' solution, but I've got no experience with it.

Addt'l info: indoor tent grow in soil (Happy Frog), Fastbuds Gorilla Glue (5) in 5 gal fabric pots. GH flora trio nutes.

Seeking input from members with experience or ideas on this approach - all replies are welcome! TIA!

So far I've seen 2700k to 6500k grows on here all do an outstanding job. The further red you go the bigger the yield from what I've seen in my room. I use a mixture from 3500k to 6500k and can't complain at all. But most light comes from 4000k strips

Train wreck / homegrown;)
Lights look high , 24 to 36 inches? Could be camera angles? Those lights look like T5’s ?
