Thanks, I haven't recently had any trouble with any plants except that darned Glossostigma. I think that is because I have hard alkaline water. It comes out of the tap at 8.2pH. I do have about 60 different species of plants growing right now and 8 blooms floating currently from some jungle val in the fish room and I have a sword blooming in the living room now. I had a melon sword that bloomed all summer last year. Though I haven't had any of the Nymphaea bloom so maybe that would help. I had stopped expermenting with other cheap bulbs after getting some
that were a nasty yellow color and those 25 watt ones are really bad. These lights are on racks mostly in my fishroom with one shop light (2 bulbs) over mostly 10 gallon tanks. There is a very bad polaroid shot of it on my web page at http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/RhondaWilson/froom.htm.
