Why does your friend recommend blacklight neon lights?  I thought
that they produced wavelenghts at the blue end (ultraviolet) of the
visable spectrum.  Ordinary white fluoresent lights are what most people I
know use.  Chlorphyll absorbs in the blue and red portion of the
spectrum so I would think that a blacklight would give you etiolated
plants.
