    Plants do better with fluorescent lighting, if one is going to go with artificial lighting. Incandescent adds heat and can contribute to a mini-greenhouse effect if your set up in enclosed.

    Absolutely not. Incandescents put out too little light and far to much heat. They shouldn't be used to grow any type of plant, including CPs.
