    Lights

    Yeah those are the two lights it gets. Those are two 55 watt (300 watt equiv. each) cfls. They get those about 11-13 hours a day.

    then i wouldnt worry about the yellowing its probably just the transformation from green to yellow to red , mine seem to go through all these colors too before they get as red as in the thumbnail pics.
    by the way what does cfl stand for in the lighting industry , i see it a lot there, and what kind of heat do the put out , im needing more lights for some new shelves im contemplating , about 3' x 5', and 3 1/2' tall.

    cfl = compact fluorescent light. They put off very little heat. I can rest my hand on them after they have been on for 10 hours with only slight discomfort lol. The ones I have here are ridiculously long in that picture the tips are only 6 inches from the plants.

    my t-5 HO do get quite warm , but a thermometer laying right on the top if the fixture, doesnt get over 95 degrees F. but I dont think I could touch the bulbs.
    Most plants that get any closer than say 5 or 6" suffer .
    but the t-5's are the way im leaning on the next project , I do like them , and use a few computer fans to keep the air moving while the lights are on. this just may be me but i think my ceph's like the slow cooker conditions I have them in, under the HO bulbs. LOL

    if you're interested the ones I am using are "HI-PRO sprial" 55 w (300 watt) equiv. each. 5000k with 3700 lumens. I have a third I am contemplating putting up with the other two but I don't want to have too much light... I'm hesitant... I think they might be completely fine with another of the same but they are just starting to look happy and I don't want to ruin it
