Ok My mind has just been overloaded with the different kinds of lights. I thought there was 3 kinds of florescent tubes. t-5, t-8, and t-12. I go look at 1000bulbs.com and there are like 6 different kinds of t-5's there is VHO t-12. I didn't know there was such an animal there either! What is a programmed start t-5? What are all the different kinds of lights? What would be best for growing plants? I am glad I started looking early because had I bought on the fly like I planned in the next year i would be totaly lost!
Please help make sense of it all!
