i have a green pepper plant i started during the spring. It's the first time ive ever realy grown anything. I was sad when it started getting cold. My dad told me i could bring it inside so i put it infront of a big window in the spare room and it's doing fine. Here is my problem: we are getting a new roomate and i cant keep "peppy" there anymore.
I need to keep it away from my cats and there arnt any other places in the apartment that have decent sun.

what should i do? I dont want peppy to die

poor "peppy". I say you go to walmart and buy yourself a clip on ligh fixture or something similar that holds a regular sized light bulb and buy yourself a 60W or 75W grow light bulb, put "peppy" in your room and provide artificial lighting (see above). Keep the light on at least 10 hours a day and peppy should be fine. good luck.
