Re: Hello! Rose question...

Hi Pam,
Our MG bunch here in the Dodge County NE area did some testing on the
flourescent fixtures and the available bulbs.  Turns out the advantage of
broad spectrum and "grow light" bulbs is greatly over rated.  Just plain
"cool white, super saver" type bulbs gave essentially the same performance.
The CW/SS bulbs are generally the cheapest you can buy.
If you can buy off on this, purchase some more plants with the bread you
save.  Rich in Z-5
