pothos grow under CFL bulbs questions
I love this website, it's highly informative to me. I am actually stuck with this question for two weeks and i am hope that everyone could help me out.
I live in an old Victorian home which is 3 stories high and the stairs/hallways are centered in the middle with no natural light from outside. The home is currently divided into 12 apartments, there will not be any outside light coming into the hallways.
I was considering to add some greenery in the hallways to clean air because there are a lot of smokers that refused to smoke outside and the hallways is stink.
On third floor near my apartment, I would like to add about 24" pot with 10 foot wood stake that will be attached to a ceiling hook for stabilization. The first floor near the staircase, there will be another one similar 24" pot, but with 14 foot wood stake that will be screwed to the ceiling as well. Both wood stake will be covered with both burlap and window screens. (will explain why)
What I'm attempt to do is to grow Pothos (I have several varieties except Neon Pothos). They will be trained to climb on that wood stake and the areil roots will cling into or through the window screen/burlap.
I'm having difficult time thinking about lighting. I have no problems on the 1st floor, but no natural light on 3rd floor. Currently there is 4 light fixtures that has 15 watts cool white "Daylight" 6500K CFL from Home Depot. I was thinking to replace all 4 bulbs to 27watts "Daylight" CFL once the idea/planning is completed.
I've enclosed two website links for you to compare what CFL i have right now and feedback on the 27watts CFL.
Will the Pothos be able to grow in those conditions? The Hallways are between 23oC-27oC in winter and 32oC in the summer.
The lights MUST stay on 24/7/365 because of safety reason for all tenants who lives in this building.
Please give me your feedbacks and ideas.
Thank you so much!!! Maybe i'll attach a photo or two to show once the project is completed.
