    tropical plants need to be moved

    hey, I have to move all my neps and other tropical plants into my basement today. the only light they will have is 4 greenhouse tubes witch will be 6ft away from them. I know this isn't enough but will they be able to last till the end of x-mas day? all the other conditions will remain the same as where they grow. I am really worried since last year It was only for a week.

    can't you get them closer?
    seems like that too long, but I haven't had any experience with this.

    you can't move the lights?
    what are greenhouse lights?
    most shoplights have a place to hang them. You can get hooks and chain at walmart, home depot, etc for a couple bucks.

    no, they are lights attached to a ceiling not meant to be moved. The greenhouse lights are just lights that are suppose to give out the light the plants use.

    Yes, they will live through it. Acclimated neps are pretty tough, and if everything else is in order, the low light won't kill them in less than a month.

    Why not just raise the plants up? With say, a box or two under the pots?
