Hi there,

we are trying to set up a green house to grow  Arabidopsis. Apparently,
high sodium pressure lamps, which are most commonly used in green houses,
give the wrong spectral distribution (yellow) to grow nice Arabidopsis
plants. Does someone know a source of lamps other than fluorescence tubes
or high pressure sodium lamps suitable for Arabidopsis in a green house
environment? We want to acchieve an even illumination of about 100 umoles
per m2 per s with a full spectrum.

Thanks, Christoph
