    Does anyone know if Home Depot has different spectrum T-5 bulbs or Lowe's, walmart?

    I dont think so. I have not seen them at my HD. Keep in mind if its a grow T5 fixture then you most likely need T5HO bulbs. (high output) If they did carry them I would be surprised and even more surprised if they were the correct spectrum.

    I would check out our sponsors and just order up what you need plus extras. they do crap out from time to time.

    Re: T-5 bulbs for Veg.

    ive seen t5 strips and t5 fixtures. most of them are strip single or double but not much of a selection w/ t5s
    they have mostly t8s and t12s. i got a 4 foot t12 fixture. 6500k bulbs. each bulb is 40watts 80 watts total
    good for starting seedlings. you can put youp seedlings right up to the bulb. it coast 12 dollars plus the bulbs
    like 25 total. good for a shelf set up like i have. just put the bulbs in and plug and grow.

    i have a 200 watt flourescent 9250 lumens 5000k . a 150watt bulb 6500k fluor 6200 lumens, plus5 23 watt 6500k bulbs and a 42 watt all fluor.(additonal 4000 lumens)=19000 lumnes.
    my qustion is that is that enough light.for a 4+4+8 space.
    and if i change to 2700k(the orangeish yellow bulbs) can i flower with fluorescents?
    i already went crazy on flourescent bulbs,, and really cant aford a hps fixture.
