Are Verilux bulbs any good?
I'm growing Pride of Barbados seedlings under my sewing light right now because I can't persuade DH to set up a worklight for me. The light uses a Verilux bulb -- CFML27VLX. I googled it and could find only this:
VeriluxÂ® Natural SpectrumÂ® Replacement Bulbs
VeriluxÂ® Natural SpectrumÂ® Replacement Bulbs are energy efficient, long lasting, and produce a bright, white light similar to natural daylight*. These bulbs feature Trucolite Phosphor TechnologyÂ, the unique VeriluxÂ® blend of earth phosphors that filters out any imbalance in the light spectrum to increase contrast, show true color and reducing glare compared to ordinary fluorescent or incandescent lighting.
Does this mean anything, or does anyone know anything about Verilux bulbs? The seedlings seem to like it. Oh, and it says 27 watts, but I think there are 4 bulbs -- not sure if the 27 refers to all 4 as a group, or each individual one
