So you wanted to know about plant lighting?

Here's a website that I stumbled across.

It covers:
  • Types of lights
  • Light and color
  • Natural sunlight
  • Incandescent lights
  • Fluorescent lights
  • HID/VHID lamps

    Thanks for pointing out this is a great primer on lighting, Sasha. Just bought some lights, so I found this rather useful. T12 lights are no longer manufactured in the US, so look for T8 or T5 lights if you are going to use fluorescent. The new T6 bulbs fit into T8 fixtures, giving those fixtures now the same energy efficiency as T5s.
