It's a waste of money of course.
Instead get some household led bulbs(warm white) and remove the plastic cap to let more light thru.
A bit more expensive than cfl but you get more light on the canopy.

I've heard pretty good things about them, I believe @912GreenSkell and @Hal 8999 use them....for the price though over heard nothing but good in my countless hours roaming around the form baked out of my mind lol

Hey...yep I use the galaxy 100X3w in all of my microgrow plants from last winter. Not incredible production(some errors on my part for sure), but I pulled some very nice plants. Great lights...tons of crystal!

I use Apollo Horticulture, Vipar and Dirt Genius for led panels. They are all the same, bridgelux, hortilux, and epistar are the ones making the diodes. These guys just assemble the panel. I have had buds much bigger then a man's forearm using my cheap panels.
