CFL (compact fluorescent lighting) provides an alternative lighting source for certain growing situations. CFL grow lights are mostly used for propagation and vegetative growth where less light and heat is needed but can also be used for flowering so long as you understand that they will not yield anything like an HID light can. CFL's are available in a blue or cool white spectrum for veg and a red or warm spectrum for flowering growth
