looking for the best light to help out my spindle palm which is a houseplant, its near a window but the amount of light coming in isn't the best. Dont want to spend alot just looking for something cheap that will work. Right now i have the palm next to a window with two 65 watt plant bulbs directly above it. seems to be working ok but heard I may need more.

RE: best light for a palm

It really sepends on the size of the palm tree and your goals for the palm. If its a 3-4 foot spindle I would think two 65W bulbs would be enough.
