    Hi

    Ive already made a couple of posts, but never introduced myself.

    I started growing CPs back in the 70s, but with a lack of experience, literature, money, etc. my attempts always eventually ended in failure. I decided to try again last year, and now that I have some time to purchase/read literature, join board like this and have a little more spending money Im hoping that Ill be a lot more successful!

    Im interested in growing temperate plants. I live in Phoenix, and the summers here get pretty hot over 110F for weeks at a time - so Im growing my plants outside in the Fall, Winter and early Spring, and growing them on my indoor shelf as it gets hot outside.

    Looking forward learning/contributing here.

    Sounds good enough to me. What kind of research have you done?

    droseraguy, bucky78 thanks, so far this board seems to have a good knowledge base and activity.

    xvart right now Im focusing on artificial lighting specifically tube based fluorescent lights (I have 36 T8s). Theres a lot of different technical information available (and missing) on different tubes. Also, theres a number of people that have first hand growing results (from this board and elsewhere). Im currently looking at the technical information and stated results and trying to see what I can use from both sources of information.

    Sounds interesting. Is this for personal use or for professional? Or both? lol. I know a lot of people around here use plain 48" T12 bulbs so if you ever need that information there is a wealth of people at your disposal. Occasionally there will be threads about bulb differences and outcomes (light intensity vs energy consumption). I would definitely be interested in your findings.
