Chroma 50 and 'Plant Bulbs'
Sorry, but I can't resist. Why would we use 'plant' light bulbs? IF
LUMENS are in your equation at all...
The lights are grouped such that the first two are a reasonable option,
a good balance between performance and price. The next three I've
little experience with, but when I look at the lumen output... And the
last three(no triton data) are the high priced, high performance
option(at least in the ultra eg).
(in) watts color cri lumens

You bought the ballast, the fixture, whatever, paid your dues, now GO
FOR THE LUMENS! If anyone would like to refute the arguement that
nearly all light grows plants and that more lumens are better, I'd like
to hear it :~>
