    Murphy please remember that growing conditions for everyone is different, and what works for person A may not work for person B. All that is recomended by someone should be used as a guidline. To be a good grower you must learn how to read the plant. Let it guide you in what to do with it. I can't answer your question about the hamata since I don't own one yet.

    One thing to remember about leaf burn. Its not the ammount of light that burns leaves its the heat generated by the intense light that burns the leaf. Not the light itself. You can have any plant in full sun if you can keep the leaf temps below that plants burn level. With florecent lights its hard to give to much light, and as long as the leaves are not too close to the bulb then its hard to burn the leaves.

    Yes they are 20 watts each. Given the color I get from them, I would say that those, + direct sunlight would be plenty to give you awesome color, but again, I am no expert.
    There are only 2 infinite things... the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not too sure about the universe.

    Thanks for the info and advice. I'll try it out. How far/close should the bulbs be to the plant?
