Could you please tell me how many lamps that would have been? Better still,
do you know how much light your plants were getting.
I have often seen statements such as "close to the lamps" but people seem
to forget to say if they are using 2, 4 or to give an idea of the area
I am not being critical here, I use discharge lamps with great results but
have not yet got the handle on fluorescent, so would dearly like to know.
Thanks in anticipation,
