Can I grow seeds with 40 watts of regular florescent light?
I would like to grow from seed. Currently, I have two 15 watt aquarium lights (florescent, but I don't think they are cool or warm, just a generic) and another basic florescent that is also 15 watts taped on the back of the aquarium. It is close to the plants, but there is a pane of glass between them. So I have a total of 45 watts - is this enough to grow from seed? I have tried to grow from seed in the past,without the aquarium lights, but only got long etiolated stems and no flowers, I read this is most likely due to light. I live in an apartment and have a south window, so light is not a problem, especially in the summer.
Does anyone have any suggestions for what I could grow from seed, or just grow in general, with this setup? African violets? I would love to grow from seed, but am willing to compromise. Thanks!
