    intermediate tolerance of lower light levels?

    I have a few intermediates that I am hoping to ship very soon....the temporary cell I built for them has conditions as follows:

    temp 78 day 70 night
    humidity 70% day 70% night
    light 4000 lumens of compact florescent light
    ventilation = very good
    soil = damp lfs


    From what I have read the temps are good, the humidity is tolerable but the light is severely lacking. How long will they put up with the low light? What symptoms can I expect?

    thx. for the input.

    Meh, should be fine. I had intermediates surviving under 40w of like 10000K fish tank lighting LOL. Probably not the "expert" answer you're looking for, but it's an answer. My experience.
