Can cannabis plants grow under a 200w dual spectrum CFL light?

Hi all, I want to know whether a 200w dual spectrum CFL light can support their growth.

Such a fixture is OK during the vegetative stage, however, it will not be enough in the flowering phase.

A 200W CFL usually produces both red and blue light, however, it cannot provide enough intensity and the right color in the flowering stage. Cannabis need a high portion of red light to promote bud development. With such a light, you probably get smaller buds and lower yields.

Thus, you have better opt for full spectrum light to suit the exact needs of your plants in various phases.
