Lighting – CFLs vs LED vs HIDs.

Marijuana needs light to grow. For outdoor growers, this is supplied by the sun. However, the indoor grower needs to supply a healthy amount of light to get their plants to grow. There are three main types of light that are used for indoor marijuana growing; CFLs (Compact Fluorescent lights), LED, and HID (High-Intensity Discharge) which are normally a mixture of Metal Halide (MH) and High-Pressure Sodium bulbs (HPS). This is where budget and space really are important. Use our guide as each type of lighting system has its own advantages and disadvantages which are laid out in the lighting section of the website.
