Fluorescent lights for plant growth

Please check out the article at:


before you spend money on special fluorescent bulbs. You'll also find
this linked from my homepage.


"In summary, fluorescent lights are efficient sources of light for
growing plants in specific locations or situations. Blue-red fluorescent
tubes may elicit an adequate response from some crops, but cool white
light is as, or more efficient for most crops. For several crops
requiring especially high light intensities, the high energy discharge
multi-vapor lamps should be investigated as well as high output and very
high output fluorescent tubes."
