The Cultiv8 high output compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) is great for use in small environments and propagation situations.
No ballast required
Uses less power than similar models on the market, but still manages to outshine them
Special coil design to concentrate light output
Very high lumen per watt ratio
Reaches optimum light output in less than three minutes
Wattage and lumen output remains constant during operation
The screw in lamp base (E40) is the same as used for many HID lamps. This makes finding a suitable reflector and lead easier. But remember – this lamp doesn’t need a ballast and is plugged directly into a 240 volt wall socket, so the lead needs to have a flat earth pin.
We recommend using the Max-Lite CFL Reflector, which has been specially designed (with a flat earth pin plug) for these lamps. You can simply screw the lamp into the reflector and plug into a 240 volt power socket. No extra leads, ballasts, or adapters required.
