    Well, yeah, but that thing is outside, so it will be very cold anyway in the greenhouse. So, since it's outside, I wouldn't be able to keep them out there in the cold, nor would I be able to put a light out there. Hmmm... I'm in deep thought right now, trying to think of some shelves or something I could put them on... ***racks brain***

    I meant to roll the greenhouse inside. The dormant plants wont know the difference from the greenhouse and the ground... they can stay outside on a table or something... When spring gets here then just roll everything back outside and pop the awakening plants back in their normal "homes". [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Okay... so... here's the plan (I came up with it in thrity seconds lol): I'll put the seedlings in their trays on the second shelf. I'll put the lights on the top shelf, directly above them. All I need to know is this: How many bulbs to I need, and what kind, exactly? The space that will need to be lighted will be approxomately 2' x 2'. What brand of flourescent tube light will I need? I have a flourescent light fixture that holds a 15" bulb, and I can borrow another from the friend. The UV lights available at the petshop have 15 watts, 620 lumens, 5000K color temperature, and 90 CRI! Looks like I got LUCKY! So, how many of these bulbs will I need, and will they work?

    Are the shelves of your greenhouse adjustable? You will want to get the plants as close as possible to the lights (adjustable shelves will be easiest but if not anything can be used to boost the plants closer to the lights (milk crates spring right to mind) I would say at least 4 tubes, 24 inch long should be plenty... Space them to maximize the ammount of light on the plants. I use Philips Agro-glo F20/T12 20 watt (aquarium and plant bulbs from Home Depot) so far all of the plants using that have done very well.

    4 tubes is 100 bucks!!! What's the bare minimum amount of lights that would keep them fairly healthy for two months or so
