Charles I have adjustable shelves that can grow plants that are 18 inches
high. The ones that get taller than that are placed between the light
fixtures. It may not do so well but it works. I just keep raising the
lights. The lights are fastened with adjustable chains so all I have to do
is loop the chain link over a small nail. I have already been moving the
lights up as some of the seedlings are already 12 inches.

Please share your wisdom/experience.

I have several trays of TC plants under lights that have gotten way too
BIG.  I am of a mind to just cut them back, stimulate new growth and
continue growing them on until spring.  Has anyone done this?]

It works on plants outside.  Won't they do the same under lights?

PS:   I will try it with one 12-pak and let you know.
