DIY lights and GE bulbs
Ok, I finally went and looked at the shop lights at Home Depot.
I'm won over -- quad setup for $29. However, I'd need to build some
kind of contraption to hold the bulbs up, since it's not really designed
as a stand-alone unit. Did I just miss stand-alone units? Are there
any sold for nearly as cheap at Home Depot?
This particular quad is thin enough that I can put one of my existing
Perfecto single bulb strips in front of it, so I'm not bothered by
aesthetics. Can I get away with just propping it up on strips of wood?
Would that be dangerous? I don't want to turn this into a carpentry
Second question --
from my reading of the archives, it sounds like GE's Sunshine bulbs are
preferred to their Plant and Aquarium bulbs. Is this the prevailing
wisdom? I think they were like $7 each, compared to $5 for the Plant
and Aquarium bulbs...
