Ott Lite... anybody familiar with them?
I came across this product at Home Depot. It is only 13 Watts, but supposedly good on the spectruam end of things for plants. Here's piece about it, from the website I Googled:
Planting the Seed
[quote]Houseplants are attractive, fruitful and constantly changing decorations that add softness and provide you with a touch of nature, indoors. However, because plants use light to produce sugars, starches and other substances needed, inadequate lighting will limit their evolution. WeÂve got a solution Â OTT-LITEÂ® Natural Light SupplementÂ products. Without burning leaves or blooms, or drying out soil, these specially formulated lamps give you the benefit of natural daylight indoors without the damaging heat. Only Mother Nature knows the difference.

"We have been using OTT-LITEÂ® (TrueColorÂ lamps) in our plant growth laboratory for nearly 10 years now Â OTT-LITEÂ® (TrueColorÂ lamps) are a must for healthy growth of all indoor plants!"
Gary D. Campbell, Laboratory Manager, AgriEnergy Resources
"Within two weeks of using the plant grow lamp it was obvious that even with one tube tied behind its back, the OTT-LITEÂ® (lighting) clobbered the competition by growing nearly twice the size in the same time under the same overall conditions."
