CFLs Work Well in Small Spaces
January 4, 2019
I converted an unused closet into a small grow room for young vegetative transplants, leafy herbs, houseplants, and out of bloom orchids. The 250-watt CFL works well in this small space to maintain these types of plants.
I don’t grow heavy-flowering or fruiting plants, such as tomatoes or squash, to fruiting maturity using CFLs, but I often use a 250-watt CFL for growing plants in a vegetative stage, as well as for young tomato or pepper transplants, leafy greens, leafy herbs, foliage house plants, and maintaining orchids and other tropicals when out of bloom.
