I am new to all of this, so I apologize in advance.
I have 4 trees (Minneola Tangelo, Meyer Lemon, Owari Satsuma, Clementine De Nules).
Next winter I am thinking of trying the following set-up, as I do not have a bright south-facing window:
Moving my Trees into my unfinished (but dry and only 10 years old) basement. I am thinking of putting tinfoil on cardboard and setting them up behind the trees, to reflect light. Then I will set up a light(s) of some sort.
So first of all, do you all think these would be good conditions for my trees to grow in the winter?
Secondly, specifically what kind of light should I buy? I have searched the internet and I see references to regular fluorescent bulbs, 40W bulbs, specialized grow lights, "red" and "blue" lights etc. What would be the specific light bulbs I should buy?
Thank you all in advance, I'm a bit overwhelmed by all of the information I'm seeing and now really sure which is correct for dwarf citrus trees.
