Will any lamp work with the correct bulb?
I'm extremely new with all of this so please bear with me. I just moved from an apartment with one window (just one, seriously) to a house with windows all over. I was very excited thinking of all the houseplants I'd be able to put everywhere. That is until I realized between the house next door, the porch awning, the overhangs, etc, very little light actually makes its way inside. So I have a lot of windows but not a lot of sunlight. In general and especially come winter time I feel like I'll need supplemental light. If I use a fluorescent grow bulb can I put it in any ol' lamp assuming the wattage is ok or do I have to have a particular kind of lamp? I'm sure this is a stupid question to many of you, but can I just an adjustable desk lamp with a bulb?? I really don't want a full on stand and I feel like that would kind of ruin the look of everything (though so would a bunch of dead plants...).
