Re: gore & a potpourri of questions

Dear Andrew,

You ask some good questions.  Sodium Vapor lights should be available at 
Lowes, Home Depot or other stores of the like.  I would caution against 
trying to raise hosta year-round because they do need a dormancy period.  

I have raised seedlings under lights for 18 months lights on 24 hours a day.  
Results were not spectacular, but it was an interresting experiment anyway.

 3) Sodium vapor lights can be used to extend the growing cycle (coupled with
 the optimal temps in question #2, we can have summer all year long!).  Is 16
 hours of daylight about right?  Anyone know of any good sources for these
 types of lights? >>
