Now that I put my nep cuttings in a tray in the window they seem to be doing fine. I hope they will root.
Well, as long as we're talking cuttings, is it better to put cuttings in natual light (a windowsill) as opposed to artificial lights? My apartment is pretty dry and the windows are somewhat drafty, so I think that cuttings would have a better chance with the rest of my CPs, under the grow lights. Is there something about natural light that makes it especially preferable?

I have never tried my cuttings under artificial lights. I would think it would be fine.
I'm sure someone has tried it and can give there first hand experience.

all my plants and cuttings have always been under some form of artificial lighting and root just fine

My cuttings have never seen natural light.
I guess I am middle of the road. *My cuttings are in a western window and I add supplemental lighting. I'm using the 60 watt Sylvania Grow Bulbs from Menards or Home Depot. Worked great for the cuttings that took.
This would be a gross oversimplification,I am relatively sure there are numerous bulbs out there capable of duplicating the natural light spectrum quite nicely. I also know of many people who exclusively use artificial lighting and have superb results. Several of my friends use one cool and one warm fluorescent bulb over their plants and their results blow me away.Originally Posted by [b
