Re: growing under flourescents


Eric, the "Chinese evergreen," Aglaonema (modesta?), grows reasonably well
(though somewhat spindly) in our building here solely under fluorescent
lights (including in at least one windowless office where no lights are on
over the weekend.  Some daylight then comes in sideways through the
doorway from west windows about 20 feet away).
