How much T5 HO?

So as much as I love growing our special plants. Even with a 4 plant limit. I grow more then I need and give away.

I’ve taken up growing veggies and whatever else. I am wanting to get set up for a perpetual lettuce grow. Being that they thrive at temps under 70F and get bitter and got to seed in warm temperatures. They obviously don’t do well in a “ideal cannabis environment”. So I am going to set up a separate grow rack with T5 HO lights.

How much lighting do I need? I’ve only ever used T5s for seedling a long time ago.
Will a 2x bulb 108watt grow out a row of greens?

It will actually be more cost effective in the long run to go with efficient led, something like the Mars Hydro. Floros need replacement more often and put out less light for the same power, even screw in leds kick but over any floros.

I’m hoping to run a 3 or 4 level rack system. Im
Going to have a low ceiling height over each row. Thinking floros would be good for that.
