    OHHHHH! so you use the CFL's to recreate sundown and sunrise?? thats so cool!!

    Glider14- Yep, you've got the answer! I'm tempted to wire them individually so I can set the cool and warm according to the time of day. We'll see. I'm also toying with idea of adding a "moon" light - maybe something along the lines of a gentle white LED. I came up with this when I used my cell phone as a flashlight one late night.

    Cooling only requires me to reach over my plants to open the window, which serves as the back wall of the enclosure. Even without such effort it gets down to about 58F in there nowadays. So my setup is now actually and finally week-long-vacation safe!

    Cheers!
