I hear a lot about the 2-3 watt/gallon rule here,

But is that for incandescent only? What about fluorescent?

By this theory, I should be using a 120 watt bulb, but I can't find any....the bulb I have now is only 20 watts (it is a bulb I purchased from Petsmart which says it's spectrum is designed for plants)...In fact, I feel 120 watt bulb may fry my hood fixture.

Please clarify. Thanks.
