Artifical light

Hello!

I'm interested in growing my VFTs in artifical light. What kind of lightbulb would I need to use? Do I need to buy a special lamp?

Thanks

Artificial light for VFTs is not recommended unless its really necessary. The Sun does the best job and its free. There is a myriad of choices for indoor bulbs should you choose to use them. Check out the "Lighting 101" topic in  the "Greenhouses- terrariums-bog gardens" section. This question is addressed several times in that section.

Good luck
Steve
