Default How many hrs of light per day?

Check the wattage rating on your hood's electrical components and review
your cooling before upgrading to higher powered lighting. Firelight is a
poor way to grow anything.

Excellent warning. I have 2 cheap hoods that are melted and deformed on top
from the heat of incandescent bulbs. They look horrid but still work. I'm
now using those much cooler screw-in fluorescent bulbs.
