Hello All.
I will purchase bamboo from netherland for future growing in my house for future landing in my garden. I'm living nearby Kiev city. It's too late to landing bamboo right now. With light I should use for growing bamboo?
1. General use HPS?
2. HPS for growing (more light in blue area spectrum).
3. General use metal halide.
4. Metal halide for growing.
I'm expect that number 2 is the best choise but it's only because I'm think that the green spectrum in light do noting for growing. And sodium lamp have no ultraviolet light (or have much less) that MH. So it's no smell ozone or nitrogen oxides.

I would choose #2 ... green wont do much for your plants, it's reflected away by the chlorophyll ...
