Hi, Pete! It's nice to see you here! I have heard of the metal halide
lights, but at that price I've never actually met one in person. I'm lucky
to have lots of windows on the south side, so I can grow all kinds of
seedlings in the winter (right now I have several small bell pepper plants
with ping-pong-size peppers growing), but with the weather as cloudy as it's
being this year, I may start wishing I had some artificial lighting. You
may not have been aware of the Saga of the Versicolor Seedlings if you
signed on at Thanksgiving; I have several of them now making increases in
small pots in the clerestory, and they may crowd everything else out by
spring. Maybe it's just as well I don't have lights.
Have a wonderful Christmas!
