I still get questions if you have to have specialist lighting to hobbyodla
Chili Peppers and once again the answer is no no no!
2 St Philips TLD 840 provides good light to the cultivation of small chiliplantor. In my measurements at a distance of about 40 cm from the light source to give the tubes around 803 FC = 8600 Lux/lumen. This amount of light well enough to get nice seedlings.
During 2 St. 36W tube with reflector, I get the room with 24 plants in size as on the pictures.. As they get bigger so I can raise to 80 cm above the seedlings and then I have about 2000 Lux left to shed light on the plants and it is enough for them to continue to develop into the may come out in the greenhouse at the beginning of may.
Keep in mind that it is not only the brightness that is crucial but it's light colour composition that determines whether it will grow well. Philips TL5 HO 865 and T8 Philips TL-D Super 80 840 are the tubes I used and I can recommend.
