CFL’s are the popular entry-point into indoor growing, both with cannabis and other plants as well. However, finding the right CFL for growing cannabis can be a bit trying.

6. Satco Hi-Pro Spiral CFL Soft White
This is the rub of a lot of powerful CFL lights, they tend to burn themselves out and don’t last like LEDs. That being said, this is a very powerful light that will give plenty of power to a medium-sized grow all the way to harvest. The reflectors here are sturdy and well built, they do a good job reflecting that light where it needs to go. The Agrobrite is a good middle ground between the likes of more expensive LED and HPS systems, without shelling out the cash needed for those.
