The Compact Fluorescent has a built-in ballast, uses little energy, and provides the full spectrum that plants require. New technological electronic ballasts provide for instant, flicker-free illumination compared to early designed magnetic ballasts. Compact Fluorescent's last much longer than regular fluorescent tubes (most fluorescent grow tubes on the market begin to diminish after only a couple of months!). The heat generated is far less than any H.P.S. or M.H. light source - bulbs can be placed within inches of tender seedlings for maximum usable light without burning plants. Many growers who are growing medium to tall plants will hang these lights from the ceiling and position them within the plant canopy for intense supplemental side lighting to increase production. Compact Fluorescent's can be used "as is" with a socket assembly and cord (sold separately) plugged directly into the wall, or they may be installed in most of the reflectors we sell. Think about the cost savings on the ballast alone, not to mention the electricity . . .
