    that takes the 48" tubes and use cool-white bulbs. It's a good idea to swap in new bulbs every year as they can lose brightness after a season's use.

    Put the emerging seedlings closer to the light and move the light away as they grow taller, this will prevent legginess. I have done this two ways: either with the shoplight on adjustable chains or the seedlings sitting up on wood blocks to bring them closer to the light.

    I've always had fabulous garden plants with the cheapest possible setup. The only reason I'd consider LED's for this purpose is if they'd fit in the same fixtures and use less electricity.

    Where in the Constitution does it say: "...on behalf of corporate interests" ???
