Hello!

If I wanted to provide some supplemental light to my succulents, what wattage bulb would I use and for how long every day? I don't want to burn them, but some of them could definitely use a little extra sun.

Thank you!

As many T5 bulbs as you can fit in your space. I grow some mesembs and stapeliads 4-6 inches under 4 2' T5, and my highest light plants aren't at their best coloration. My Argyroderma and all stapeliads have flowered in these conditions, however. 12- 16 hours is good depending on what you are growing. You don't really have to worry about burn with fluorescent lights.
