Good lights for Peppers

crazy8October 1, 2008

I am going to be growing some jalapeno and cayenne peppers indoors. Im looking at getting TCP XHL lights. Im looking at getting eight lights total. My friend and I will each have two fixtures. Anyway Im thinking about getting 4- 32w 3500k and 4- 32w 4100k. Im just wondering what you all think I should get that will be great for pepper plants and any other vegetable plants (or any plants for that matter)

Thanks for the help again

I am using a string of 15 clear and orange colored christmas lights outside in a clear plastic polyurethane tent for four 5 gallon plastic pails sitting on top of a wood pallet lol... although this is likely not your intention to grow them outdoors it works well for me and is a measure to deal with the cooler outdoor temperatures which came and went in late august and half of september and will be returning again next week including the possibility of frost . We've had two frost days already since the last week of august but yeah it works and is very decorative at night . The bulbs are mainly for added warmth . My bell peppers are half to fully grown so I didn't want to end the season without at least some peppers .
