    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    I very much doubt that you are going to get 1000 watts in a 2 foot long light, esp. if it is a flourescent! Better re-check this figure.

    I have found the best unit to be a 4 foot shoplight equipped with 1 40 watt plant grow bulb and one 40 watt cool white bulb about 6 inches from the top of the pots. This will give you enough light, and also room to expand. Depending where you are and what you want to grow, you may not require a terrarium for many CP, the collecting of which can be quite addicting. Light is the single greatest factor affecting CP health: its hard to give them too much light, and very easy to give them too little.
