    Flourescent lights are often expensive if this is your first try I recommend keeping them outside or you could try a coil bulb or whatever those bulbs are called the 15 watt ones usually marketed as "energy saving" they're rather bright and you can set in a desk lamp or dome and set it close to the plant within 6" it works wel but color....is lacking so put it outside cheaper effective and you don't have to water it when it rains.

    Darkesthour,
    I live in San Jose, which has very similar weather to Sac. I keep mine outside in the garden but move them into the shade on the hotter days. I've found that the Common Green variety is somewhat less tolerant of higher temps than the Green Dragon. The tips of new sprouts tend to get burnt and stunts the leaves before they get a chance to mature. Keep them in water trays about 1/2" deep with distilled water and the best part is there are enough bugs in the garden to keep your plant well fed naturally. You can probably winter them outside as well. I had good success this year just setting my plants on a table under an awning. Good Luck [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    There are only 2 infinite things... the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not too sure about the universe.
