hello everyone I have finished the first part of my light set-up

I used a clothes hanging rail to hang the reflector which I found at home bargains for 6.99 and it can extend to about 2 metres high

ive got build a box around it with some emergence blankets for reflectivity as there will be no weight to the box it can be made light weight

and a little close up of the bulb at work

So far so good. How many watts is that puppy and how many seedlings are you putting under it?

(OT how close are you to the RedBull F1 factory?)

Ahh, I'll just PM you about F1......

125 is the watts, there will be another number for the lumens if not on the light then on the box it came in. The watts are only the amount of electricity it needs, not its output of light. THAT is the inmportant number.

Ahhhh lunch is over, I'll talk more later with ya, bye.
