What is a T5 Light Bulb?
T5 light bulbs are incredibly efficient, low heat lights that are used for a ton of things, including indoor growing. When you first start off your plants, whether it be seeds or clones, they don't need very much light. Many growers will use a T5 grow light for the first few weeks of a plants life to save money on energy, prevent heat from building up, and giving the plant the type of light it needs in this stage.
T5 grow light bulbs are not ideal for taking a plant from seed to harvest, though, as they arent super powerful. Once your plant starts vegging, you'll want to find a more powerful light source.
What lengths do t5 bulbs come in??
We carry T5 bulbs in a number of different lengths, including 18 inches, 2 feet, 3 feet, and 4 feet. Regardless of what your fixture size is, chances are we have the right replacement for you here!
Which T5 bulb is right for me?
You already know Hydrobuilder has the best selection of T5 bulbs in the entire industry, but maybe all the options are overwhelming you. Which one is right for you?
The first step is choosing the right length. Once you have narrowed that down, consider which wattage you want. When it comes to T5 bulbs, most of them are under 65 watts. The final step in choosing the right fluroescent T5 tube for your grow is choosing a color temp (kelvin rating). The lower your color rating, the more red the light will be. The higher the color rating, the more blue it is.
