Do I need lights in solarium in winter in Los Angeles?
I'm getting nervous going into fall and winter. I am new to gardening. I have all my plants on a north facing solarium. (This includes peppers, tomatoes, carrots, lettuce and eggplant.)
There is only one window that can open so most of the plants are behind tinted glass.
I'm concerned about overnight temperatures (40-50 degrees F. I plan on closing the window and hope that is enough. I am looking into lights to help the veggies grow now that there is less light and lower temperatures.
I'm going cheap. I've heard that I can use warm white and cool white fluorescent lights. I've heard that warm white is better for flowering and cool white is better for growing. Any suggestions on which to use and how long? What time of day?
