Table lamps and AV's
I have an old oak table in a corner in my living room with a lamp sitting on it. It's one of those small lamps and the highest watt incandescent it will take is 60w.
A few weeks ago I was reading the archives here, or maybe it was a newer post, but someone gave a violet to her friend, and the friend said she has it on her end table in the living room under a regular lamp, and the plant is doing great.
I understand about heat and plants, but can an incandescent bulb really grow an AV? The table would look great with one AV on it.
I could buy a flourescent bulb I guess, but I'm not keen on having that type of light in my living room.
The distance between the table and the top of the bulb is 18".
Could I grow a plant under the 60w bulb? I can go smaller if 60w is too much.
But if I decide to use a flourescent, what wattage do I need?
