simple lighting question

Posted by semaje (My Page) on

I want to start seeds inside and let them grow a little inside too.

I dont understand artificial lighting for plants so I have some questions.

1.) What will 40 watt regular home light bulbs do for plants?

2.) What about 9 watt reptile lamps?

3.) If i cant use regular old bulbs, what should I get that I could get at the hardware store?

Thanks james
