Reality check! -- let's bring this thread up to date and consider a couple of _current_ facts about LED light bulbs:

I'm surprised that no one mentioned that even though incandescent light bulbs are supposedly banned, you can easily still buy them online IF you know what to search on: 100 watt incandescent A19
There is something to it.  Cutting edge research on some of it.

Personally I don't like CFL light due to quality of light and the dangerous chemicals that present themselves when the bulb is broken either

What would you say were the biggest "light bulb" moments for you reading these books?
at 80w of led (4-6 x 8 watt led/60w equivalent each bulb)! Plenty of light!  May as well put your modem on it too and have uninteruptable solar power to your comms and entertainment.

For this type
shortening life but producing more light for less time. So buy good ones.  I have led bulbs in daily use for over 8 years.  I can now buy the same bulb for 1/10th the price.
eventually would be getting more light out of the bulb power provided by the electrical current.


It's the same as heat pumps and geothermal heating systems having greater than 100
That was quite hilarious, really. Putting bulb in oven to make electricity!

But to be serious, let me explain more of this basket-stody that R Ranson gave us.

As watt is universal
It can always be added outside in the ground.  Not quite peak placement, but close.  Add a few light bulbs at night, especially to increase grow cycle lighting (solar powered, eh?  Probably

I think the secret is to have lots of organics in the mix. The other critical part is mulch! I
